sugar storm - Page 2

Glad to know that I am not in the storm alone.
I think I'll try all your methods and hopefully I'll find something to contain the sugar and quit having to dust my kitchen everytime I make icing.

Thanks for the tips!!

I USUALLY USE 2 DISH TOWELS BECAUSE ONE WASN'T BIG ENOUGH AND I STILL HAD PS ESCAPING. NOW WITH 2 IT WORKS. GOOD LUCK!

kate39, i have tried the two dish towel approach when making a large batch of icing, with better success. One dishtowel seems to end up in the bowl somehow.

So when you use the dish towel, do you add all of your PS at one time?

I usually add it 1/2 cup at a time and I think it would be a hassle to place and remove the towels for each addition.

I have a large kitchen towel that I lay over my KA and I hold it against the bowl.. I wrap it carefully around the back so no confectioner's sugar escapes from the back part of the bowl... I let it mix and get incorporated then I remove... I can tell by the sound and the feel of the bowl when all the confectioner's sugar has gotten mixed with the shortening and other ingredients.... I take the dishcloth off and go over to my sink and shake it as there is usually some sugar on the underside... I've used this method for years now and it works well for me icon_smile.gif

my dream is to one day go into a full time business, making enough money to HIRE someone else to do this and to clean the mess up afterwards icon_biggrin.gif it doesn't hurt to dream, now does it?? lol

going to try the towel over the bowl tonite. Hate the cleanup after making icing. I'm also with most of you the KA guard is a waste, I don't even know where mine is icon_lol.gif

Hey I just had to share ntertayneme, I used a large towel over my icing yesterday and it worked wonderfully!!! No more sugar storms in my kitchen. I added all my PS at one time and then covered listened to my mixer and took the towel off when the sugar was mixed in. It was so great not to have to dust my kitchen when I finished making my icing!!! Thanks for the help!
