IMBC

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i've got some IMBC in the mixer right now, using WBH directions. she says that if it looks curdled just keep on beating. well mine has looked curdled for the past 5 minutes, and i think it's looking worse. should i keep beating it? for how long till i just give up?

Ok, I'm guessing here, but have you already added the butter? If yes, was the bowl cool when you did it?

I did the WBH IMBC last week and my bowl took at least 25 minutes to get cool enough that it wasn't still warm. It seemed like forever and a day!

Did you maybe add the butter too soon and so now it will take longer to come together?

Just guessing, don't bite!

Mine did the same thing this weekend. Put the bowl, and paddle attachment in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes. When you take it out, turn the mixer on high and it will come together in about a minute or so. I thought mine was ruined, but I was able to save it. Good luck!!

Yes you are still fine. Are you using a paddle or a whip? I suggest a whip. If it is curdled it it probably a little too cool. If you have a torch, hit the side of the bowl a bit and see if that helps. If not, just pull a little out, microwave it, and add it back.

I am so used to eating regular buttercream, that when I tried the IMBC, I thought it tasted like pure whipped butter!  How important is it to add ALL that butter?  Seems like a lot!  Thanks, everyone.

I never add all the butter my recipe calls for.  I use 4 sticks intead of 6.  It still tastes buttery, but when you eat it with cake, it's great. 

I homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.
