I just finished making sugarshacks recipe for buttercream and only used 4 pds of PS not five. it seems fine....should I put it all back in the mixer and add another pd or leave it as is? the consistency seems fine..maybe a touch greasy in the end of a bite but I hate to start over. any suggestions?

I guess it would depend on what consistency you want. Honestly, I tend to believe a recipe is written a certain way for a reason. An entire pound of powdered sugar makes a huge difference in not only consistency and taste.

It will also make a big difference in crusting too. It won't crust as well.

Definitely add the sugar, you will regret not fixing it when you had the chance. It will probably only take you 5-10 min., you can just dump the icing into the mixer and add in the powdered sugar, not really starting ALL over again, your icing will be fine after that.

Just so I'm understanding .... "pd" means "pound"? (I grew up using "lb" as the abbrev for pound, so just checking).

I always wonder why in English we use the Spanish abbreviation of pounds (=libras).
Do you know why IndyDebi?

Like many words in the English language, it's from the Latin:

I never thought of it that way... I always just accepted the abbreviation for pound as lb.
