  8. Hi Bakerella! I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Boysenberry colored mixer!

    I bake often, but I’m often limited by the use of my wee-little hand mixer (I’m probably on 7th or 8th one because my frosting, mixes, dough, etc have broken all my previous hand mixers. =/ ) So, I would SO love a standing mixer that won’t break at pull of thick batter.

    For Halloween, I would love to make creepy Halloween-Inspired Cupcakes! For the season though, I can’t WAIT to make ALL THINGS PUMPKIN! :)

  9. I am from Canada, so I’m not sure if I am eligible for this giveaway, but I thought I’d submit an entry anyway. I would like to win the Canopy Green mixer.
