Kitchenaid Mixer Attachments

Which attachment do you use to mix your cake batter, flat paddle or wire whisk? Also which do you use for making your icings?

Batter: paddle
Icing: Whisk and/or Paddle depending on the type of icing

If you use the whisk for buttercream, you'll whip too much air into the icing. You'll never get it smooth on the cake.

Beater Blade for the paddle. I use the whisk only for meringues, then change to the paddle to add the butter.

I use the whisk for the cake batter but I make sure I do not over beat (prevent air bubbles)
& the flat paddle for the butter cream

When I took cake decorating classes...theTeacher told us to ( Only ) use the paddle attachment for cake batter or your cake will be full of air bubbles...she said you could use the wisk for frosting if you want the frosting fluffy and full bodied..paddle is safe for both though!

Good to know, I've been using the whip attachment for my batters. I never over beat it, in fact I always hand mix to finish, but sometimes my cake middles still sink a tad. Makes sense. Thanks!
