I received a KitchenAid for Christmas from my lovely husband. I have wanted one for a while, one of my friends has one, & I loved hers the first moment I looked at it. Not that I am a brilliant cook, or should really be need something so extravagant, but I just loved it. I actually enjoy cooking when time permits, & like many, I must be in the mood to try new recipes. My passion should I use that word so lightly, would definitely be making sweets. There is nothing more satisfying for me to smell something sweet & delicious whether is be going in the oven, on the stove or popped in the fridge. Yum!
So here is my new baby........She lives on my kitchen bench as at the moment as I need to find a space tall enough to keep her.
It was my sister in-laws birthday the other day so it was a perfect opportunity to have my first play. Also because my nephew has egg & dairy intolerance's, I offered to make something so he too could enjoy the sweet feast.
It was a rich chocolate cake that I made, nothing to out of the ordinary. What I wanted to show was how perfect my butter cream icing looked for the topped of the cake. Yeah yeah I know, nothing riveting buy I can't get over how perfect it looks. Really, it was so smooth, my other little beaters never performed like this. MMMMM just look at it, a perfect blend of nutalex (dairy free butter), pure icing sugar & cocoa.
