Ode to a Kitchen Aid Mixer

When I was single, I treated myself to a Kitchen Aid hand mixer. I mean, I wasn’t looking for doing any major baking, so a hand held mixer would work well.

It worked very well, and served me for 16 years without fail.

Until tonight.

My neighbor who is from Eastern Europe and a young mother was telling me tonight that her husband’s birthday is Sunday. She doesn’t drive and was walking back with her son in the stroller from the grocery store, where she bought fixings for a cake. I asked her what kind . She said chocolate. I asked her what kind of frosting…she said, ” I am going to melt some chocolate and butter and drizzle it on the cake.

I introduced her to the world of 10x sugar and the classic buttercream frosting. I give her the empty bag from the sugar I used and told her that it was the basis of what was in the bowl I gave her.She seems happy to get it, and I told her it was my little contribution to her husband’s cake.

In the midst of doing the icing, my beloved Kitchen Aid died.

**sigh**

It goes without saying that I may be going on Amazon as soon as I post this to get a new one.
