How can I get my butter cream to have less air bubbles? This would make smoothing soooo much easier. I need a thin enough version for base frosting. Any suggestions or recipes? Please icon_cry.gif

If you're using your whip attachment (on stand mixer) switch to paddle instead.

I find that if I mix my icing when the bowl isn't completely full, It will get air bubbles.

The paddle attachment does the trick. I don't know why I didn't think of that. I guess thats what CC and all of its cake savvy members are here for thumbs_up.gif .
