Best Hand Mixer for Cakes

The Ultimate Guide

Who doesn’t love a moist, decadent, melt in the mouth cake? Cakes are the perfect treat, whether it’s for a birthday, a wedding, or even just for tucking into on a Saturday evening watching Netflix. You really can’t go wrong with cake.

But, when it comes to baking it, aside from using the right ingredients to make your cake rise and making sure it doesn’t dome in the middle, which hand mixer is the best hand mixer for cakes? Let’s find out!

Black+Decker MX600R

We love this Black & Decker hand mixer, aside from being ridiculously good at whisking, it’s also ridiculously budget-friendly! It’s probably better than some high-end hand mixers out there.

The Black & Decker hand mixer has a 250W and features 5-speed variables. Unlike most hand mixers with metal or stainless steel beaters, B&D has nylon beaters. The nylon beaters take complete control and mixes your cake batter to perfection, leaving no ingredients untouched. Although, bear in mind that they might start wearing off over time.

With your hand mixer, you get 2 nylon beaters, 2 dough hooks and a whisk. All of the accessories are dishwasher friendly. You also get a detachable compartment to store all your attachments in.

Baking tip: Rest the heel of the mixer on the bowl for effortless mixing without straining your arm.

Breville Handy Mix Scraper

Although the Breville Handy Mix Scraper is heavier than others, it’s a fantastic mixer for making cakes and one of our favorites here at Mom’s Baking Co.

It has a 240 watts motor of power and comes with 2 whisks, 2 dough whisks, and 2 beaters. What we love about this stand mixer are the whisks. They are dressed with rubber so the whisks don’t cling and cling while mixing your cake batter.

The pause button on the Breville hand mixer is a great feature when making cakes. You can pause, add more ingredients to your cake batter, and keep on whisking!

Baking tip: Pop all the accessories in the detachable compartment to save up space in your kitchen.

Cuisinart HM-90S Power Advantage

Another favourite hand mixer of ours, which is great for cakes, is this Cuisinart Power Advantage. It’s 200 watt powered motor can whip up pretty much anything.

Move through every 9 speeds with the touch of a button, making it easier to transition from one speed to the next. It also features 3 slow start speeds, preventing those clouds of smoke from going everywhere.

With your hand mixer, you’ll get 2 beaters, 2 whisks, and 2 dough hooks. For added bonus, you also get a spatula and a recipe book!

Baking tip: If you prefer having a neat baking bench, tuck the cords into the clip-on case.

Braun MultiMix 5 Hand Mixer 5100

Whether you are a beginner baker or a pro, the Braun MultiMix HM5310 is ideal for mixing up fantastic cake batter.

The Braun hand mixer features a 230 watt motor and comes with 2 beaters, 2 dough hooks, and 2 whisks, all of which are dishwasher friendly. The attachments are very sturdy and with the incredible power of this mixer, you will not have any difficulty with mixing tougher cake batters.

The Braun HM5130 MultiMix is a very solid, durable hand mixer that is lightweight as does not take up too much space in your kitchen.

Baking tip: You also get a food processor with your Braun Multimix HM5310! What a bargain!

KitchenAid 5 Speed Hand Mixer

KitchenAid has a fantastic reputation In the baking world and has become a reliable manufacturer of mixers, and the 5 speed Hand Mixer is no exception.

There is a much more powerful one with 7 speeds and an even MORE powerful one with 9 speeds. We found that the 5 speed hand mixer works really well when making cake batter. But, if you are a more advanced baker who will be using your hand mixer for more than just baking cakes, then you may consider getting the 7 speed or 9 speed.

The KitchenAid turbo beater is designed without a center post, meaning there is less matter build-up, a common issue facing a lot of hand mixers. This clever design makes this hand mixer a great choice mixing together even the stiffest of meringue peaks.

Another cool feature of this mixer is that you can choose to lock the cord to the left or the right side. This allows you to approach your mixing bowl from any angle. It’s also super helpful if you are left-handed (like me) and are sick of the power cord getting in your way all the time.


We haven’t just given you a list with the best hand mixer for cakes but these are also great as all-rounder hand mixers for all your bakes.

We absolutely love the Black & Decker hand mixer here at Mom’s Baking Co. You get every attachment you need from a hand mixer and is great for light and tough cake batters.

If you’re looking for a hand mixer that is both stylish and performs like a pro then the KitchenAid 5 Speed hand mixer is the one for you.

Happy whisking!
