I just tried making sugarshack's butter cream recipe. Has anyone else ever seen such a mess trying to make it? I have a 5 qt Kitchen Aid. I followed the recipe exactly - 5 cups (2 1/4 lbs) shortening, 5 lbs powdered sugar, liquid, etc. It tried to climb out of the bowl and I could not get the entire 5 lbs in the recipe. I was at least 2-3 cups short and the icing was FULL of air. Every time I tried to add liquid, the mixer slung it out all over the counter. It also did the same with the powdered sugar. Anyone else run into major problems with this as well? I can't be the only one. I'm afraid to try it again since it's so expensive to make just to waste the icing. I doubt I will try again unless someone can guarantee the recipe will work like she claims it does. I know it didn't in my Kitchen Aid. It almost burnt the motor up as a matter of fact.
