the search feature is not working for me - I have been looking for over an hour now to try and find the recipe amounts for the 6 qt. mixer and I cannot find it icon_cry.gif

Could someone who has it please fill me in? I remember the 2 lb. 13 oz. of high ratio but that is all I can remember.

TIA

Cindy

I found her original post - and have read through 40 pages, and then it says "no post exists" for page 41 -48 (and I know the 6 qt. recipe was on one of those last 3 pages??)

I am hoping someone will read this and feel sorry for me and have the info I need. I wish I would've written it down....... icon_cry.gif

i just divided the recipe by 5 and then multiplied that figure by 6, basically its 1 cup shortening per pound of powdered sugar and then just add a couple more tbsp of liquid.

hope this helps.

It is 2 lb 13 oz shortening (6 1/2 cups), 6 cups powdered sugar, 5 tbsp flavoring, 20 tbsp coffee creamer liquid. I made a batch last night. HTH!

ncox - THANK YOU!! (although, I think it is 6 pounds of powdered sugar! icon_wink.gif )

suzy - thank you too! I was tired last night (and frustrated with myself for NOT printing the amounts out to begin with) I never thought of doing it that way - I won't forget it now though!

You all are wonderful - I really appreciate your help!!

Thank you Ky - I tried searching last night and got NOTHING. It didn't matter how I typed it in.....I have now printed it, saved it, emailed it - I am making sure I don't lose it again.

I don't have a stand mixer, so how do I keep my icing from getting air bubbles? I would like to try this recipe but, dont know if it would even be worth it as I don;t have a KA...

Woodruffbn, I have made it without a KA using the 41/2 ratio recipe.

It wasn't easy, and that's when I bought my KA. All the difference in the world. That being said, lots of folks here make it without a KA all the time. Maybe someone else will chime in on that issue.

Just made a batch for a cake tomorrow BTW...

you use the same method, just keep your beaters under the icing. Kinda go up and down without bringing them out of the icing.

i had written down two recipe's an couldn't find, the sugar shack on is the one i didn't finish writing down don't know why, i looked every where for it. it didn't fit my smaller mixer so i kept mixing and adding, then taking some already mixed and added it again, i finally found it, and it is 61/2 cups shortening, 6 lb lbs of con sugar, mix creamer 1 cup water and 1 cup creamer heat in micro. 5 tablespoons extract, 20 tablespoons of mixed creamer it's in the recipes but they are not in alphabetical order so it was hard to find, it's almost down to the end of the page i added some salt, i'm trying to find one that's not so sweet,
