What is going on with my BC icing??? ... Help - Page 5

post #61 of 117
Oh Sharon, that picture is so depressing! LOL. I'm going to crack the code on this icing yet! I'm waiting for my KA to blow up so I can go buy one with the lift head! I've tried everything else!!!! icon_eek.gificon_redface.gif

Seriously, I can usually get it to the point that I can work with it and can get my icing fairly smooth on the cake. I would just like to be able to dip my spatula in the bowl and come out with it creamy and smooth without having to remix or add more liquid.

What?? I was all set to use my new beaterblade to make Sharon's icing and I'm confused - is it true that I cannot use a beaterblade to make her icing?? Please reply as i was gonna make icing Thursday! Thanks!

I wish I had more advice. You all just need to come down here, with your mixers and ingredients.... and we will have a huge icing making party and figure it all out!

Is there a specific reason why you don't like the beaterblade? Does it not do the job well in mixing an airless icing?? I use it to make my ole regular icing , some air not much but I was gonna try Sharon's as I have 2 outdoor receptions that need to hold up to the heat and humidity.

No...using my own recipe, that is similar. The making sure it filled up my 6 qt to the brim, and mixing wet ingredients first, really helped. I also read somewhere to beat the crap out of my shortening first, going to make sure I do that too.

As the beaterblade scrapes the side, it makes pockets to the top that allows air down into the icing. I had to switch back to my regular paddle for icing again. Too bad, too...but yeah it does work better.

Yikes! Made a batch today with target brand pwdr sugar (usually use walmart brand) and it came out smooth but texture is slightly gritty!!! ARGHHHHH! Using it anyway but yuck, guess it does matter what sugar you use....

I just want to thank you lady's (kitagrl/Sharon) for taking the time to answer questions, I did not join in the threat because all my questions were pretty much answered.

I do know for a fact that I have definitely not beated my BC that long which is why maybe its not as smooth.

You guys rock !!!

Its amazing how different the ingredients make the buttercream...this week I was short on time so bought everything (butter, sugar) at Target instead of my regular places and I don't care for my buttercream!!!! Weird.
