Kitchen Appliances (pick yours)
I do own 2 of the listed brands. Waited very long time to invest on one – Kenwood K-Mix – amazed by the time i saved and how easy it became to make several batches of cookies all at once. Made 3 batches of my delicious sugar cookie recipe with no fuss. KitchenAid was gifted as an award for my 1st in place wedding cake at CakeShowIstanbul2016. ;D I must admit I love both of my mixers very much.
Good cakes=good photos! Your camera gear is as important as your amazing cakes. I would advise everyone to invest on a camera kit and keep track of the technology.
