Baptized by Peanut Butter

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Do you have a Kitchen Aid mixer? Well I do, thanks to my wonderful husband!  It truly was the perfect Christmas gift for this little baker/chef in-training.  Unsure of what to make first, I decided on a classic.  Cupcakes, chocolate fudge with peanut butter icing.  Drool.
I made the cupcakes from a box mix, who cares, we all know Betty Crocker knows best.
But the peanut butter frosting I made from scratch.  Super easy, its just powdered sugar, peanut butter, milk & vanilla. 

 For my first attempt piping out frosting from a bag, I don't think I did too bad...I'll get better with a little practice.  I over frosted one, so I had to eat it.  Chocolate peanut butter heaven.

I am truly in love with my mixer, I cannot believe I've gone this long without one.  The quiet hum, ease of use, & minimal cleanup is enough to make this foodie flip.

Thank you Chris, I love my gift & I love you.
