I have been lurking on chowhound for a while, and finally have something worth posting (I hope). My awesome husband got me a kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas, and I can't find any info on if I need to alter my recipes for it. I mostly just bake cookies and started baking cupcakes a while back too...I am planning on baking cookies tomorrow (I have worked every day since Christmas, but am off tomorrow! Woo hoo!) and want to go into this fully prepared. When I started using a hand mixer, there didn't seem to be any issues (going from wooden spoon to mixer), but just want to make sure. I am especially concerned about when I go to make cakes and cupcakes.
