I'm trying SugarShack Icing for the first time tonight. I just received her video and my sweetex and can't wait any longer. hahahahaah !!!
Question though....If I want to color the icing do I do it while it is mixing in the mixer or by hand after it's done.
I only want to make a big batch of one color.
Thanks for any help.
If you need a big batch of one shade, I would add it to the mixer to save time.
Definetely do it in the mixer. I did it by hand once and the icing is verrrry heavy and my arm hurt like crazy.
I just did a big batch of blue this weekend with her recipe and I just did right in the KA because otherwise you end up putting air back into it (or that's just me ) But it worked great!
Thanks for the quick replies.
I'm with you all...I wouldn't have the strength if the icing is heavy.
I appreciate all the help.
yep, i do the whole batch in the mixer!!!!
The batch came out perfect.
Thanks sugarshack for your DVD's . My cake came out almost perfect. Still working on the sides.
Again, Your info is invaluable.
I colored my coffeemate/water mixture so that I could account for the extra liquid. Worked out ok but I'd prefer to make a batch of white and then color what I need in case I want a few different colors.
Not sure when to color it then.
I made a batch last week that came out just beautiful, but.......I needed more than one color so I added my color in after. It seemed to work some air in when mixing it by hand, but I didn't know any other way to do it. I could definately see a difference after it was colored, but it still smoothed quite nicely.
