I was gifted a Classic Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas, yay me! I have been coveting them forever. I truly wanted a red Artisan, for the larger capacity bowl, and because duh, it's red! However, I am ecstatic to have received it as a gift, mom did good! She also bought me a few attachments, including the scraper beater you guys discussed earlier in this thread. I was excited to use it, as I hate stopping the mixing process to scrape the bowl when I am baking. However, when making my first cake, I noticed that for some reason ingredients kept splashing out of the bowl. I have used the mixer a couple of times since I received it, and it didn't seem to matter whether I began with dry ingredients or wet ingredients in the bowl, they seemed to splash out, even though the bowl was not even close to full. This was even on the lowest setting. Both times I switched to the regular beater in order to finish. Is this normal with the beater blade, or am I possibly doing something wrong?
