Hi all,
My honey just bought me a kitchen aid mixer (ultra power plus 4 1/2 quart) for my birthday and although I love it, I am very happy with my old mixer. My old mixer will only hold one cake mix at a time so I figure if I am getting a new mixer it might as well be bigger and allow me to mix two mixes at once. Does anyone know if the 4 1/2 quart will hold two mixes? If not will the 5 quart? Thanks for any feedback.

I use the KitchenAid Classic White 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer, K45SSWH and i make the White Almond Sour Cream Cake (WASC) found here at CC and it calls for 2 boxes of cake mix. I will tell you this though, that's all it will hold. It comes right to the top of the mixing paddle. I have to be careful with stuff sloshing up and i have to make sure i scrap the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl real good but it does work.

And if you have the splash guard/shield, use it! It helps contain the first seconds of lots of mix being incorporated with the liquid. thumbs_up.gif
