Will my old Sunbeam mixer work for this???...

Hi Cakers!

This may be a stupid question, put please allow me to ask it. =)

I need to mix 3 cake mixes. I have a Kitchen Aid 5 quart that will hold two. I also have a Sunbeam electric mixer. This SB mixer has a large glass bowl that will also hold two mixes if needed.

My stupid question is, will the cake that was mixed with the Sunbeam mixer turn out any different than the Kitchen Aid mixer? When I say turn out, I mean after the baking and cooling process.

I am making 2 mixes with the KA. So, Part of my 2nd cake pan will have half a mix from the KA and the remaining half from the Sunbeam.

I ask, because the KA comes with the paddle and whisk attachments. Both of which I use. The Sunbeam only has those old fashion beaters.

Thoughts??

Thanks,

Michael

You won't have any problem using your Sunbeam for this task. A lot of people don't own stand mixers and get along just fine. Just make sure to scrape around your bowl well as you beat. Don't worry! icon_smile.gif

You can always blend the two batches together in a big bowl after you've mixed them, then pour the blended batter in the pans.

(I'm guessing they will indeed mix quite differently. Not sure it would make a difference after baking, though.)

I think there will be a difference, mainly because you use both atachments and the amount of air incorporated into the batter qhen using the paddle is much less than using the globe.

I would say use both mixers but make sure you mix both batters thoroughly.

hope it helps icon_smile.gif

Thank you!

I will go ahead and mix both batches together before pouring in the pan...

I am truly not an expert but I wanted to add: I have an old Sunbeam mixer that I inherited and it has two bowls - larger and smaller - with old fashioned beaters. When making larger cakes, I will use both of my appliances - old and new - and just make sure that all are beat very well. I then combine the two batches to incorporate. I have had no problems to date. HTH

Why would you use to different mixers? Why don't you make the first two cake mixes and after you pour those into the pans then mix up the third mix using the same mixer?
