Hi Sarah, How important is the attachment on your mixer when baking, my mixer only has the whisk type attachment

Many thanks

Hi Mark,

You can use the whisk attachment to cream butter and sugar for any recipe but it won't work for mixing all batters and doughs.
The whisk attachment should be fine for looser batters such as cakes and it should be fine for mixing icing as well.
For bread don't use the whisk attachment, rather knead it by hand.
Cookies can be mixed by hand or using a strong spoon.

Hope that helps.
