I got a new toy (yes, another one!) for graduation! A BIG THANKS to my Aunt Lisa, Aunt Mary and their families for giving me the most big people gift a girl could get. Have you figured out what it is yet? That’s right, it’s a Kitchen Aid mixer! A red, shiny, new Kitchen Aid mixer.
They had originally bought me a black one and I had to make the decision about whether or not that was the color that I actually wanted. I ended up deciding that red better suited my personality, and although I have now been sentenced to making every kitchen I ever have match a red Kitchen Aid mixer, I think it will be okay. Here’s a picture of my shiny new toy…
The first cooking adventure that I took it on was an awesome one. Chocolate cupcakes with Nutella frosting. They came out AWESOME. If I had to do it again, I’d absolutely add some cayenne pepper to the chocolate cupcakes though, just to give it a little bit of a kick. (Everything’s better with a kick…)
I’d like to thank Stephanie from 52 Kitchen Adventures for providing me with this awesome recipe: http://www.52kitchenadventures.com/2011/07/18/chocolate-nutella-cupcakes/, check it out!!
