Seriouscakes, thank you for the Youtube video of the New Metro Design Beater Blade. I ordered one from www.cutleryandmore.com and it came in 3 days! Everything I mix comes out so smooth and without those nasty air holes!! And believe it or not, no more scraping down the sides of the bowl!! And no more accumulation in the bottom of the bowl!! This is definitely one of the best things I've bought for my cake baking! Everyone should get one!!

I got the beater blade a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. I got mine on amazon.com and paid $29.95 with free shipping.

I have dial-up (slow as a snail) and youtube takes about an hour to load! Can someone post a pic? Or a link to a pic? Thanks!

I just saw them in a cooking magazine and can't wait to order mine! If you go to Kitchen Aid, you should be able to find them.

What about buttercream icing, does it take the air out of the icing???

Ok... that's my question too. The last couple batches of BC I've made have had a LOT of air in them and I can't figure out why. Would the beater blade help??

I am still testing it for that, I won't have any cake orders until January so I have plenty of time for messing around with it icon_biggrin.gif

I'm pretty frustrated with the air thing right now. My last icing was VERY bubbly. I can't see making a huge batch like they suggest to keep it over the paddle... but I guess maybe that's my only choice?

I bought one off amazon.com a few months ago and don't know how I ever lived without it! It's definitely worth every penny, my icing comes out so smooth, no need to scrape the bowl, it does it for you. I don't have any air bubbles or lumps. A great item to add to your Christmas list!!!!

That's one of the things I did notice about my bc, it was a lot smoother and I didn't get any of those little 'beads' of sugar clogging my tips. I had *some* air bubbles in my bc but I had no trouble smoothing them out. You can kinda see towards the end of my last video how smooth my cake was icon_wink.gif

I am confused icon_confused.gif

What do people normally use to beat things in their mixers?

We get three blades with all our mixers as standard, a ballon whisk attachment, a beater blade (k beater) and a dough hook.

Do you all normally just use the whisk attachment? We only use the whisk attachment for whipping cream, egg whites and making sponges, most everything else is done with the k beater.

Maybe that's why people get all the air bubbles in their buttercreams, wrong attachment!

So is that why the buttercream recipes are for such large amounts in order to cover the whisk attachment?

Do you not get these attachments when you buy your mixers?

I'm assuming everyone asking is doing the same as me, using the BLADE attachment, not the whisk. The purpose behind the larger recipe is to completely cover the blade beater, that locks out the air (I don't do it like this but a lot of people on here do). I get the same effect when I let my mixer run longer, it kind of deflates the buttercream and the air bubbles disappear. The question is can the beater blade do the same thing? I'll be checking it out....

I would love this for BC!!! I think I'm going to buy it, looks so awesome. Problem is I already cashed in on my bday and xmas presents from my parents.. (airbrush gun and compressor, and sugarchack DVDs..) and im a student with no job... lol.

Maybe I can use part of the money form a wedding cake order to buy it icon_smile.gif

hehe. Thanks for the video!
