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?

Hi Shamani!! I don't have a stand mixer icon_cry.gif and I just used my regular old hand held mixer and it worked just fine. icon_biggrin.gif 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.

Hugs, ~Denise

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
