I have some new toys for the kitchen...I don't know which I am more excited about...
Our new Kenwood Food mixer with blender and food processing attachment
which arrived on Saturday, and which represents OH and my present to ourselves in celebration of booking our wedding (a belated engagement present perhaps and our first jointly owned domestic appliance).
My beautiful new cake stand and matching slicer. (I also have matching cake forks and am dropping copious hints about matching teaspoons).
The cake, BTW, is just a regular jam sponge, although with homemade jam in the middle. But it was mixed in the new Kenwood mixer. I'll be having more of a play around with it in due course - I think it will depend on the size and type of things that I bake as to whether I use it or not. I already have a bread machine but that can be quite limiting in the type of bread that you make so I am looking forward to trying out some other sorts of loaves using the mixer. But what we've used it most for is making smoothies in the blender! If you have a mixer, what is your favourite thing to make in it?
