Whoopie Pies and mixer dies
Sunday I decide to make some whoopie pies. Well, let me back up to last December 2009. Ahhh, yes! My Christmas baking frenzy. I decided that I would do a 12 Days of Cookies for hubby to give away to those that works on his team. That was his gift to him. Whew...that was crazy. My second child was due to be born in March and here it was December - 5 months into the pregnancy with a 16 month old in addition. Nothing like a good challenge though! Amoung all my baking I had done something to my hand held mixer and knew that it may have messed it up. Fast forward to today. Mixing up some whoopie pies on Sunday/Halloween eve and my mixture decides that the gears on one side is stripped out leaving me with one functioning beater. Do you know how much more work that makes? I do. The whoopie pies could have been better. They were made. They were yummy, but not as good as they could have been if I had a fully functioning beater. Here is where the good part comes in. Are you in the same boat as me? Have one thats old and need a new one? Just need one period?
