I only recently heard of the sugar shack icing, and I can only find recipes for like 6qt. I only do this on the side for family and friends so I don't have a large mixer and was wondering if anyone has the recipe broke down into smaller batches. I also would like to know how much you think I would need for a full sheet cake with a decorated batman wilton on top? Thank you I need it

Here's the scaled down version for the 4 1/2 qt. Kitchenaid. I originally got this from pjaycakes. I've added my notes about weight and flavorings I like to use as well as my shorthand version of the mixing directions!

Sugarshacks Buttercream for 4.5 quart Kitchenaid

4 ½ cups hi-ratio shortening (2 lbs, .54 oz by weight)
4 lbs powdered sugar
4 tbsp flavoring (2 vanilla, 1 butter/vanilla, 1 crème bouquet)
2 tsp salt
12 tbsp coffee creamer mixture

Mix shortening with warm coffee creamer mixture and flavorings. Add 4 cups of sugar and salt. Then stream in remaining sugar. Mix at speed 6 until ready.

Thats the way i have done mine in my 4 1/2 quart, maybe alittle more coffiee creamer mixture. I dont use the boquet flavoring. Just put the towel over your blender and you wont have such a mess and little air gets in.
