Christmas cakes and Kenwoods.
Over the past few days there has been a sale locally where I must admit to buying the odd bargain. One item kept calling to me in the store - a red KitchenAid. If I walked up and down once I must have gone past them 20 times. On Saturday I even took my hubby to walk past and admire the lovely lovely boxes. However, I did resist (wow they cost a lot!) and I really do not need one.
Sitting at home, feeling a bit abandoned was my Kenwood. Today I got it out to make my Christmas cakes (four - we do like Christmas cake!!) and I realised that actually I quite love it! It is over 40 years old and still mixes beautifully. It made my hubbies cakes when he was a boy...it mixed our wedding cake (we made it ourselves) and it has mixed our Christmas cakes for the last 12 years...it really owes us nothing....and I would never swap it....even for a very lovely red KitchenAid!
