I am sure that my lead in was scoffed at. I mean who mixes cakes by hand anymore? I do that's who. I never use a mixer unless I am using a mix from a box such as the gluten free cake mix I recently made. Other than that, it is arm power all the way.
I like to feel the texture of whatever I am mixing so I have quite the collection of wooden spoons. I also love wood and make as many things as I can out of fallen tree branches. This love of wood must be why I was so drawn to this DIY.
Although this project may seem a little daunting at first, I am sure that once you get going you will forget the blisters forming on your hands and forge ahead only to be thrilled with your end result.
