Goodbye Old Friend

About a year after I got married, I decided to take cake decorating classes.  I loved it!  It turned into a side business and I decorated cakes for people for 17 years.  I did cakes for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, weddings, or any special occasion that needed a cake.  A year after I started teaching, I didn't have the time to continue.  I still decorate cakes, but only for the family; mostly for the grandkids.  The Christmas after I started decorating cakes, my husband surprised me with a Sunbeam Mixmaster Stand Mixer.  It was the best mixer in the world!  Sadly, my old and faithful harvest gold friend started falling apart.  Hubby tried to fix it.  If something can be fixed, he can do it.  This time, it was a hopeless situation.  I went online and found its replacement.  It arrived today!!!  Now I feel like I have to make something special.  I'll get back to you later on what that might be.  My new mixer has big shoes (or beaters?) to fill. It's a beauty, but I hope it can live up to its ancestor.

An oldie, but a goodie.
