Ode to My Mixer


From time to time on this blog, I will highlight a gadget that I find useful in my kitchen. Although this gadget is probably more appropriately called an appliance, I had to make it the first in this category. It is after all my favorite. It is a 6qt KitchenAid stand mixer. Now I will be the first to admit that it is a pricey item. It will probably be the most expensive gadget I talk about here. I compiled birthday cash from two sources to purchase mine. It has been so worth it. I use my mixer almost every day. I don't think I could make fondant without it. Here is a little tribute to my favorite kitchen gadget.

Welcome

Welcome to my blog at That Really Frosts Me.com. If you are reading this then you have found my inaugural post!
I will be discussing various aspects of cake decorating. Including instruction you can use to make your own beautiful cake. If you are new to cake decorating, don't worry. I will start with the basics. I believe that with a little patience and good information, anyone can make a great cake.....no culinary school required. I have been making cakes for almost 10 years and have never taken a class on the subject. It did take lots of trial and error. Hopefully this site can put you on the fast track. Just remember that it's only sugar. So jump in and have fun...you can always eat your mistakes!
