When making the cookie icing using Antonia74's recipe, it states to use the paddle attachment.......I don't have a paddle attachment, can I just use the whisks but on a low speed?
Has anyone ever done it this way?
I would PM antonia with this.... in fact I will notify her...
Hi Shamani!! I don't have a stand mixer and I just used my regular old hand held mixer and it worked just fine. There is photos in my gallery of the cookies I made using the recipe. I think that the whisks should work out fine...but you could PM antonia74 though just to be sure.
Sorry...I did a double post.
that was my first thought but because I havent done it I didnt say that....it makes sense though..
I wouldn't use the whisks, personally. Whisks are used to aerate a product, which is really the opposite of what we want for Royal Icing. (Those little air bubbles take so long to get rid of and are annoying.)
I made the icing using the wisks and it worked fine. but I do agree that there was just too much bubbles and I had to then using a spoon get rid of them. I was wondering though where the neading attachments would work better than the wisks. Guess I will try them the next time.
Thanks for the help. Will let you know how the cookies turned out
