Wow those look fabulous!

Welcome to baking. Baking for me feeds my need to micro manage and control little things, so I don't drive my friends and family crazy, LOL! Oh and it is in my blood, I just love baking.

While not a professional pastry chef, there isn't much that I haven't done pastrywise. My friends and family nudge me to take it further, I already have people in the neighborhood pay me to bake for them, as well as co-workers and friends. My only issue is getting a job with health benefits, since small bakery businesses don't/can't offer it.

I have a similar Black Stallion in my kitchen, I call her Birtha, she has given me 15 years of good service so far.

Anybody who can give you that many years is a keeper... I have a smaller kitchen aid (the green genie) that I have had for over 20 years, now BS&GG share bowls n beaters... I think they're in love... My goal is to open a small bakery/coffee/tea house with my daughter when she moves back next year... I'd love to hear any tips you might have, my one tip I just learned is to weigh everything, aside from being accurate, it's 100 times easier...

Thank you for your kind words, I look forward to hearing your baking stories... XOXO Mimi

My sis wants to open a shop just like that, when she retires from the military in about 4 years at the rip old age of 45, LOL! She currently lives in Savannah, I think it would do well there. She wants me to sell my house, pack up and move to be her baker!

I am with you on the weighing thing, once I bought a scale, there was no going back. I am in the process of converting old family recipes to weight, and tweaking them ever so slightly. I am always on the quest for the perfect recipe for any given thing.

Do you have Shirley O'Corrihers BakeWise? I do and it is excellent, really speaks to my inner baking nerd, a really good read. I love how it gets into the chemistry of each ingredient and how it works. I have the carrot cake from that book in the kitchen, just waiting for guests to arrive this afternoon.
