For years I have wanted a stand mixer, but being the frugal person that I am, I know I would not get enough use from it to justify the cost of a nice KitchenAid model. Plus if I had an extra $250 just laying around I would buy a Wii instead. This Christmas Dana (in a roundabout way) bought me a new stand mixer from Target. Today was my first chance to use it. Quinn "helped" me make cupcakes for small group tonight. I enjoyed being able to add the ingredients without having to hold the hand mixer. Later we made some homemade caramel frosting and I let her frost a cupcake for herself.
