Do you use a hand mixer or a spoon to beat your cake?

I made a cake this morning, and when I took out the blender, I started wondering how many people still beat their mixure with a spoon as opposed to a blender. Sometimes, I am too lazy to take the mixer out and will beat the mixture with a spoon, but that can become very tiring. The cakes always come out beater when I use a mixer though. What about you , hand or blender?
