KitchenAids.. you either love them or hate them.
I love how mine looks, its soooo pretty! But I hate how much mess it makes!
The lid they sell for it is as useful as a chocolate tea pot - clearly just a money making idea that no one thought through properly!
Anyway, my kitchen being covered in icing sugar every time I made buttercream (which I do A LOT) I decided I needed a hack...
I tried a tea towel - dry was useless, damp worked okay. But it meant I had to wash it afterwards.
Elasticated showercap with a hole cut in it - had heard about this from many people. Worked ok but still got mess everywhere when I removed it as the icing sugar gathered in the elastic bit, plus.. I had to wash it afterwards
Eventually I did this.. and when I shared it on Facebook people went nuts! Apparently it's genius? I didn't think so!
Anyway.... next time you are using your KitchenAid and don't want to end up in a cloud of icing sugar , try it...
PUT SOME CLING FILM OVER YOUR KITCHEN AID!!!
See told you there was nothing genius about it!!!
