i heart cake

Archive for the ‘Kitchen’ Category

I know, i know. I’ve already got what i wanted. But believe it or not, there are other things on my Christmas wish list and funnily enough they’re all kitchen related! What is wrong with me? I’m usually lusting after an Alannah Hill dress or Prada heels. Not dining sets!

Anyway, whilst in Myer the other day, i spotted Gordon Ramsay’s new dining and cookware in collaboration with Royal Doulton. My heart skipped a beat, it was so gorgeous it was ridiculous. And so was the price hence why it’ll probably always remain on my ‘wish’ list.

 There are so many wonderful trifle recipes out there that i would love to make but i can’t. Why? Because i don’t have a trifle bowl. Making it in anything other than one would be sacrilegious!

Another thing on my wish list is a good, proper zester (is that even a word?). I know they’re readily available at good shops, but i can never seem to find one that will zest my lemons the way i like it (1st layer only, no pith please!).

And last but certainly not least, i would really love a food processor. Not just any food processor either, it has to be the KitchenAid 😉 Perhaps i’ll save this one for my birthday in a few months 🙂

When hubby asked what i wanted to for Christmas, i knew the answer straight away. I mean, how can i be considered a proper baker if i didn’t own a KitchenAid? 😛 

He was also very good and let me have it early. We’re having a BBQ this weekend and i plan to bake my heart out so it was only fair i got to have it now. I used it last night and made lemon meringue cupcakes and boy oh boy is it good. It whipped up my meringue in a matter of minutes and just made the whole job so much easier.

Isn’t it pretty? I can’t stop looking at it!
