I am excited to say that I have reached over $500 in my kickstarter project, It is so true that every single dollar counts. I am so anxious to see how this will turn out! There's still time to support my business venture. Just go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1920130639/hobby-baker-wants-to-go-pro.
I told you the other day that I was expecting more packages....and they arrived!!! Here's the last box of stuff.
I was busy getting everything in order and trying to entertain my 3 year old at the same time. We made a game out of unloading my boxes. He was such a big help! We sorted, organized, cleaned, and repackaged. And at the end of the day, everything had a home. Such a good feeling.
Those of you that have been in my kitchen may have seen my vintage yellow KitchenAid mixer. It was given to me a few years ago and I love it. I love KA mixers. I also have the classic white one that the hubby bought me. Any eventually I want the Swarovski crystal hot pink one....but that will be a while down the road. Maybe once I have a shop! Anyways, I was using both the yellow and white mixers on a regular basis for quite some time without any problems. Several months ago, however, the yellow one started having issues with the speed control. I would put it on the first setting (stir) and it would spin like it was on one of the high settings. Let's just say that I may have had some issues with flour/powdered sugar ALL over my kitchen. Can you even imagine that mess? It got to the point that it wasn't worth trying to use and I switched to using the white one exclusively. Yesterday I thought I'd pull the yellow one out and try to see if I could fix it. As a kid, my dad had a box of old doorknobs and locks that I would take apart and put back together, interchanging them, so I thought I'd give this a shot. I mean, I am pretty handy (or so I thought). After a bit of tightening screws and jiggling wires I put it back together and turned it on. To my surprise it was working the way it was supposed to. I was ecstatic!!! I even texted the hubby to let him know I fixed it. I cleaned it all up and started making buttercream. I was so excited that I took this picture.
