I made Indybebi's BC recipe for the first time today and first of all OMG is it ever delicious!!! I didn't have clear vanilla so I just poured in a little regular vanilla, almond, butter and lemon icon_wink.gif. The texture is really nice so far, but I have some air bubbles, If I let it sit for awhile on the counter and then kinda smoosh it with a spatula will that get rid of the bubbles? Or maybe didn't I mix long enough or maybe too long?! I am glad I finally tried, I know this is going to be a favourite, I haven't had Dream Whip in years, it brings back memories! Thanx thumbs_up.gif

Mixing it on too high of a speed will cause air bubbles. Also if you fill your bowl above the beater with icing you won't have air bubbles. You can probably work most of the bubbles out but it will take awhile.

Maybe I did have it too high, next time I will make a double batch or make another one now and mix them together. Thanx for the help, I appreciate the time everyone takes to answer questions!

Use a wire whip and stir it well in a figure 8 motion.

The wire whip worked! It's so smooth and lovely, I'm so excited to put it on a cake now!

I didn't state it just right. What I meant was to stir it *by hand* w/a wire whisk. Just wanted to make that clear so anyone else reading this would understand Glad it worked out for you icon_smile.gif

Oh, kakeladi, where were you ages ago when I needed this tip for the air in my icing?? Oh well, I guess you can't answer if I don't ask, right?

Good tip, have to remember for next time.

I use Indydebi's recipe all the time and love it. I get it all mixed well, then I just let my mixer keep mixing it for about 8 minutes, then it comes out silky smooth.

Does anyone have a recipe for this buttercream? I'm in search for a better buttercream recipe than I have been using. Thanks!

Thanks I found it. I searched earlier but must have done something wrong... I can't wait to try this! I'm so bored with the buttercream I make... I have always loved dreamwhip so this sounds like a winner!
