Two coats with topcoat. No application issues, just wish the brush wasn't so thin.

This is my new mixer. I got it last week. I have named it Mixey. I feed it and love it and hug it and pet it and talk to it and if I could take it out for walks, I would do that too. It's the KitchenAid Professional HD mixer. I love it even more because HD are my initials. I'm not sure why a mixer is High-Def, unless it stands for something else, but it just makes it that much awesomer. Forgive the mess in the background. I got distracted by the mixer.
Anyhow, I've wanted this mixer since high school. It's the mixer of my dreams. I had used it back in high school for a cooking/baking/foods class and fell in love with it. But I could never justify the price. I finally caved though. And I've been baking like mad. Totally wish all of you guys lived close because I would feed you all the fatty and unhealthy stuff I've been making.
