Absolutely gutted.... I was only waxing lyrical a week or so ago about how long I’ve had my hand mixer and how well it’s lasted.. today I started my first baking commission (two traybakes and a lime and ginger pie) and cake mix goes everywhere - looks at my paddle and the damn thing had busted 😩... I single paddled it luckily buts it’s not ideal... do I buy a whole new whisker or dig about to see if I can find a new paddle ?? #homebaking#baking#bakingequipment#oddbodbakery
A fascinating half hour with old-style baking equipment at The Wordsworth House, Cockermouth, today.
No metal or electric whisks in the 1770s, but this simple, hand-tied, birch twig whisk both feels right and is very effective. As with modern kitchen equipment it came with specific operating rules, namely that a mixture should only be whisked clockwise. If someone should inadvertently break this rule, the whisk had to be replaced with one made of rowan twigs and the mixture rewhisked correctly to beat out any bad spirits introduced!
Midway through a lemon drizzle traybake , I contemplated the fact that I’ve actually had this hand mixer for about 17 years.. it was a house warming present from someone when we first moved in... it’s not an expensive make or anything buts it’s simple straightforward and never failed me.. #cookworks#equipment#baking#bakingequipment#lemondrizzle
Starting to purchase baking equipment for my first therapy session at the hospital! Decided to go with bowls with rubber bases so that they will hopefully stick to the table when the patients are mixing the ingredients. Purchasing this equipment has made the dream start to become reality and some nerves are starting to sink in, but I am so excited to start! I was able to purchase this equipment with money that was raised through my gofundme! I am so appreciative of everyone who has donated! If you’d like to donate there is a link in my bio!
