KitchenAid Giveaway!

KitchenAid Empire Red Artisan Mixer
It's our birthday this month!  Can you believe that BMTB is 3?!  Over the last few years we have shared over 300 recipes with you all, many of them have been made in our freestanding mixers.  We both believe that these little beauties really do make baking better and freestanding mixers don't come any better than the KitchenAid Stand Mixers.
So even though it is our birthday, one of you lucky readers are going to get the best present any baker could ask for…

A KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer!
We are very excited to announce that KitchenAid have given us one of their KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixers (RRP NZ$995.00) to giveaway.  And, the winner gets to choose what colour they would like.  There’s White, Almond Cream, Empire Red, Black, Cobalt Blue, Yellow Pepper or Green Apple to pick from.  Cool huh?!

A KitchenAid Stand Mixer is a baker’s dream come true.  It will save you time and energy, while providing outstanding results.  In fact, the unique planetary mixing action allows the beater to spiral to 67 different points on the bowl for quick and complete mixing.  That’s the highest beater-to-bowl coverage in the industry!  Also, the trademark hub allows for the attachment of numerous accessories, allowing your mixer to be transformed into a pasta machine, meat grinder, ice cream machine, vegetable slice, sausage maker and much more.

Help us say thank you for such a great prize by sending the folk at KitchenAid an appreciative message on twitter.  If you want to get dreaming about all the attachments you want to go with your new mixer, check out the KitchenAid website or sign up to their newsletter to get all the latest KitchenAid recipes and info to your inbox.

To enter, leave us a comment below (click where it says ‘comments’ next to the ‘posted by’ information) telling us what colour you would like and your favourite recipe from Baking Makes Things Better.  Make sure you include your name and either leave your email address, like us on facebook or follow the blog so you can find out if you have won.
The giveaway closes 5pm Thursday 14th February.  We will announce the winner on Friday 15th February on our blog and facebook.  The giveaway is open to New Zealand residents only. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted once the competition closes. If we have not been able to contact a winner by 5pm Monday 18th February, the prize will be re-drawn.

  2. Red - because red things go faster!
    Chocolate Macadamia Cookies - yum yum

  3. Its so hard to choose a favourite recipe, but for today I think the marshmellow peanut butter tart is definately up there, this could change by tomorrow depending on what we bake after school! I would love the red mixer. I would also like to take the chance to thank you for all your amazingly easy recipes, school lunch ideas and easy to follow recipes. You have helped me feel like a real mum that bakes :)

    Red would be my pick!


  148. I would LOVE to win a black one please. And after jamming my hand in my current noisy/hopeless mixer last week (don't ask, but I have the wounds to prove it!) a KitchenAid mixer would be a dream come true.

    So many amazing recipes but the Red Velvet cake is totally foolproof

  149. Happy birthday! Hope you made yourself an awesome cake :P

    I would love a Yellow Pepper Kitchenaid because I'm allergic to capsicums so this will be the only pepper allowed in my kitchen.
    My first choice recipe is probably the Mars Bar Cupcake because it comes out perfectly everytime.

    My email is
    But I already follow your blog, twitter and facebook :P
