Mom: What color mixer did you order?
Me: Imperial Grey. It sounded the toughest. :)
Mom: With Caviar and Blue Willow being the wimpiest!
Me: That's what I thought. "Blue Willow? How can that possibly stand up to a serious cookie dough?"
We got us a mixer [using wedding-gift cards]. Not just any mixer: The Professional 5 Series Mixer. It seemed like a good compromise between the low-powered Artisan, and the excessive (and even more expensive) 600 Series.
For the 'maiden voyage', I kept it simple. It did not disappoint.
