This would not just consume a large amount of energy from the baker, but also more time will be put to complete the task.
However, with current development of technology, a mixer could easily assist the baker in whisking everything for as long as it needs. Modern baking has allowed bakers to bake their goods in a more effective way, with less time and energy being utilized in the baking process.

Rather than exhausting all energy into manually whisking and burning to achieve singular end product, modern baking introduces machinery that paves the way of producing more with less consumption of energy and manpower.
At the end of the day, it is up to the baker to decide which mode of baking they prefer at the end of the day. However, it sure cannot be denied that technological advancements do contribute to providing maximum effectiveness and utilization of resources in the F&B industry.
