It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, but I constantly receive emails if I still create the Bling Mixers as seen in the Georgetown Cupcake shops across the US. Quick answer – YES!
It’s been some time since I’ve created one for a lucky baker but I’ll be starting up a new order shortly and sharing progress photos on Instagram (@blingdivadesigns) so be sure to follow along!
So answers to frequently asked questions.
Can I Use My Own Mixer?
While I prefer to use a brand new KitchenAid Artisan mixer – for a few reasons – Yes, I can use your existing one. I just ask that prior to shipping it to me that you have it thoroughly cleaned & degreased to ensure the best possible surface for when I start applying all of the Swarovski crystals.
So why do I prefer to use new? Well, first - these projects take about 6-8 weeks. If you put a lot of mileage on your mixer – you might not want to be missing it from your kitchen for so long! Second – it’s fun to do a bright color and you might have a more subtle KitchenAid mixer in your kitchen.
How Do You Put On The Crystals?
One by one! It’s a labor of love and I can complete a Bling Mixer in about 20 hours. Not at once though! Your eyes get a little crazy if you spend more than 2 hours at any given time. With this method of application – each mixer is completely custom and not any 2 are exactly alike.
How Much Do They Cost?
Each Bling Mixer is $2000. If you send me your clean mixer, it’s $1700.
I Love Them! How Can I Buy One?
Best way is to email me so we can sort through any questions and then I will send out an invoice for you to pay via PayPal. Once you pay, I get to work on your order.
What If I Need It Quickly?
If you need it sooner than the 6-8 week turnaround time, let’s talk. Depending on the timeframe and what other projects I have going on, I can accommodate a faster ship date for additional cost.
