a 2008 view of my yellow kitchen

as i am 6 cakes shy from the completion of hector’s take on ROSE’S heavenly CAKES (baking all the recipes from the book), i stomped into these old video files just prior setting up the kitchen in my new apartment, back in fall 2008.

hector’s take project started as soon as i got my mixer plugged:

and one of the first things to do was the  remake a Baked Hawaii from the cake bible:

and then slice prosciutto for the Prosciutto Ring from the bread bible:

    Thanks a bunch for the vital info, have made up my mind, its the 5 Qt for me for now…don’t want to blow people’s top off making cakes, smile

    Which is more convenient? Tilt head, right? Hav’nt used a stand mixer so far so am pretty much blank on this…have always used a hand mixer to date.

    • i like tilt heads, but it really is just a matter of getting used to. bowl lift is the only mixers you have at bakeries, so one gets used to not having a tilt head. won’t make any difference in the batter.

      if you get a bowl lift, i prefer the 6 qt because the bowl is wider than the 5 qt bowl lift.
