My husband would make 1,000 orange-creamsicle filled cupcakes for our son’s high school fund raiser! These cupcakes are super light and fluffy and taste just like an orange creamsicle pop!

It’s so pretty and shiny – not sure what I would make with it first though. Might just sit there and stare at it for awhile.

SandyF November 13, 2011 at 12:37 am

OMG, I want one of these so badly! Since it’s getting close to the holidays, I would probably use it to make a delicious fruitcake recipe I have or maybe homemade bread for the neighbors. Whatever I used it for, it would be way more fun than using the portable mixer I have now.

Emily D. November 13, 2011 at 12:37 am

My husband is getting ready to come home from Iraq next month and his favorite is my chocolate chip cookies, so of course that would be the first thing I’d have to make!

Eliani R. November 13, 2011 at 12:44 am

Definitely vanilla cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream!

penelopepitstop6 November 13, 2011 at 2:31 am

First thing I’d make is Cinnamon rolls like my grandma used to make! I inherited her kitchen aid mixer about 18 years ago, and I believe she purchased it somewhere in the mid-70′s. I have had one of the new, shiny, lift-stand mixers on my ultimate wish list for awhile now, and my ultimate goal is to learn how to make great yeast bread that doesnt come out of the bread machine.

Sherri Y November 13, 2011 at 3:50 am

*Swoon* I would make my grandmother’s pound cake recipe if I was so lucky to win this beautiful piece of deliciousness! Thanks for the opportunity to participate!

Tessa November 13, 2011 at 4:43 am

The first thing that I would make with this is Raspberry macarons filled with chocolate ganache :) (Or my favorite pizza dough, or my grandmothers secret cheese cake, which I happen to know :)

Chrissy Farnan November 13, 2011 at 5:20 am

Cranberry bread!! Yummy. Beautiful mixer.

Trish Davis November 13, 2011 at 5:23 am

I would make a sour cream pound cake. It has been a family favorite for years.

Becky Hewinson November 13, 2011 at 5:25 am

This is on my wish list! I would make cheescake. It is so hard to mix cream cheese with a hand mixer!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Giovanna November 13, 2011 at 5:32 am

It is a beauty! I would do my favorite Martha Stewart “kitchen sink cookies” – although the recipe says it’s ok to do by hand, experience tells me… one of these mixers would be so NICE!!!

Solange November 13, 2011 at 6:00 am

I grew up in the US, but my parents are from the French West Indies. It is a series of islands in the Atlantic that France owns… so it is French. My parents were from “St. Barts” (like the US likes to call it) but it’s actual real name is St. Barthelemy. Whenever we used to go and visit I loved this treat called: “pain de chocolat.” This is a lovely soft croissant like bread (but in the shape of a square or rectangle) with pure chocolate in the middle. Not like gooey chocolate, but just a hint to make it oh so yummy. The chocolate is so rich, that is why they only use just a little in the middle. This treat is most always served warm, like it was just baked. I learned how to make them here and I can tell you, my hands will be very happy not to have to hold the hand mixer anymore. This Kitchenaid mixer would make it so much more enjoyable to make this treat. If you want the recipe, let me know. I hope I win!!

Keedra Allen November 13, 2011 at 6:07 am

pumpkin cake

Lois November 13, 2011 at 6:10 am

How great is this? Well, who doesn’t like birthday cake? Everyone in my family does. So, we have birthdays every month. Okay, we don’t but we always find a reason to bake a birthday cake. Oh, and we love a supermarket’s frosting so much that they actually sell just the frosting straight from the bakery. I guess we aren’t the only ones who love it! So, I usually buy their frosting, but I bake my cake from scratch. Love Kitchenaid! I have a handheld Kitchenaid mixer now. But, this would be a great upgrade!

Bernie November 13, 2011 at 6:24 am

I’d make a batch of my Gramma’s sugar cookies!

Vera November 13, 2011 at 6:25 am

The first thing ever that I would make on my Kitchen Aid would be Tres Leches Cake.

I dream of owning a Kitchen Aid mixer, make it a reality! :)

Helena November 13, 2011 at 6:40 am

OMG just in time…in my country it is 1 pm…i’d cook red velvet brownies with cream cheese frosting…delish!!!

Sally November 13, 2011 at 7:02 am

The first thing I’d do is make my wonderful husband his favorite German chocolate cake!! What a wonderful giveaway. Thanks so much!!!!

Rebecca November 13, 2011 at 7:05 am

This is absolutely gorgeous… Picking the first item to make with it would be hard.. but it would be a bread of some kind or my mother’s favorite pound cake recipe for the holidays. Yeahhh we would do the pound cake as a way to honor my late mother!

Carol Remy November 13, 2011 at 7:06 am

I would use it daily because I love to cook and trying new recipes- – but if I received it in time for the holidays I would use the dough hook for homemade egg noodles and yeast rolls.

Beth November 13, 2011 at 7:07 am

I would make a new york style cheesecake! YUMM!!

I plan to make the most delicious coffee cake with chocolate chips, walnuts, and cinnamon streusel!

Cheryl V November 13, 2011 at 7:23 am

I’d make my grandmothers rum cake. She used to make a rum cake for our family to enjoy every year on Christmas. It’s the only recipe I managed to get from her. She’s now 92 and in a nursing home, so I have taken over rum cake duties. It’s a recipe that’s near and dear to my heart. <3

Kristine H November 13, 2011 at 7:26 am

Whoa….What a beauty!! I would make mountains of pumpkin bread for the holidays.

rexanna November 13, 2011 at 7:29 am

Diana November 13, 2011 at 7:33 am

Nicole B. November 13, 2011 at 7:47 am

It is hard to decide what would be the first thing I would make with this beautiful mixer because all sorts of recipes are filling my thoughts, but I think the first thing I would have to make would be some delicious cinnamon rolls!
Thank you so much for this giveaway!

dawn November 13, 2011 at 7:49 am

My all time favorite, classic poundcake–the fattening, deeply delicious kind!

Brittaney November 13, 2011 at 7:53 am

I’ve been asking for one of these! Our mixer broke and it’s been torture trying to bake without it! I’d make my lemon cookies- its such a thick mix that it broke my last mixer!

LOU November 13, 2011 at 8:00 am

rich, fudgey chocolate cake…yummy

Vanessa November 13, 2011 at 8:03 am

Cookie dough! :)

Channah November 13, 2011 at 8:05 am

I’d make the red velvet cake balls I am planning on trying out for the first time for my friend’s bachelorette party I am hosting… Sadly I will right now be making them with my about to die hand held whisk. (yeah you can pity me! You can also pity me and give me the kitchen aid :-) even better. ) – I’ll take red, black or silver… not fussy :-)

Hannah November 13, 2011 at 8:09 am

I would make my grandmother’s red velvet cake.

Dan Johnson November 13, 2011 at 8:13 am

If I were the lucky winner of the new mixer, my first project would be to make a series of holiday cakes – pound cakes, bunt cakes, coffee cakes, carrot cakes, etc – and share them with friends and family.

Monica Conyers November 13, 2011 at 8:17 am

Rachael November 13, 2011 at 8:20 am

I would make Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes! :)

Jamie Ainsworth November 13, 2011 at 8:20 am

As our last mixer has died and we have a 2 1/2 year old enthralled with the holiday season this year, I would get a jumpstart on any special treat my son and I could make together. He’s a great helper in the kitchen and can’t wait to help Mommy get ready for “Feast Day” and then make cookies for Santa!

Rex Foster November 13, 2011 at 8:23 am

Wow such a beautiful baking Mixer….With just being a first time homeowner here in Raleigh NC. I would use this to bake and make most of the cakes and deserts to invite my Family over for my first every Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Being the only Boy in my family I was always the one who loved to bake cakes and let my mom know that I also love to cook like my sisters as well. This would make me very proud to show her that not only I’m I a pro in the kitchen I also have the right equipment to cook with. Please help my first home Christmas meal be a hit with my entire family. Thanks/ And BTW I love your website and have tried many of your recipes. THE ARE ALL GREAT!

Jennifer Haven November 13, 2011 at 8:42 am

Becky F. November 13, 2011 at 8:43 am

I would make all of my Christmas yummies with this incredible
Mixer. Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway, and for such
An incredible blog!!!

Angela Vyse November 13, 2011 at 8:49 am

Amy (Peppermint Mocha Mama) November 13, 2011 at 9:07 am

I think I’d make my husband a creamy pumpkin soup, with jalapeno cheesy bread. Poor thing is sick today, and I think that would hit the spot. The mixer would be great for kneading the bread…(fingers crossed) :D

Samantha November 13, 2011 at 9:50 am

I would make a batch of sugar cookies! :)
