I don't have a standing mixer, is there an alternative, am anxious to try these!?

Do you have a hand held mixer? If so that would work just as well.

Or, cream butter and sugar the old-fashioned way, by hand with a wooden spoon; when soft and fluffy, add rest, per the recipe, using a balloon whisk. You will not get as much volume and the result will be a little denser, but still very good.
Sounds like a plan creamtea, thanks - with the handheld it would require using the whisks which would not get the same results, right? Forgive me, I am a cook, NOT a baker...
