Vintage Sunbeam in Action







I had an overwhelming response from last weeks post on my vintage pink Sunbeam Mix Master. Lot's of you wanted to see some pictures of it in action. Well here she is. In all her glory. I made cupcakes for Australia Day. She worked a dream. I couldn't stand a bright blue icing so I compromised for pastel blue. I am so happy. Lock me away with her all day in the kitchen and I wouldn't care.

  1. I think any cakes that came out of that mixer would be happy ones, and fully deserving of their fine icing. Videos of it mixing away on YouTube would probably soon have a fine following...

  33. Hi Simone,
    she is gorgeous.. look at her go! There is no substitute for quality is there? You make a fine looking cupcake I must say, the pretty light blue icing is much more appetizing, I agree, but the bright blue would stop me from eating the whole batch! I hope you had a great Australia Day.
    :)

  55. Hi!

    Your vintage mixer is what really pulled me into your blog, how lovely. But I am most curious about how you get your cupcakes measured? Can you share tips or what you use to get your perfectly even batter in the baking cups?

    thanks!
