Can't seem to get rid of air bubbles in buttercream for a perfect smooth finish. I am mixing on low speed. Any other suggestions??

do you let your icing set for a while (i usually do overnight) before i use it to ice, i then stir on the lowest setting on my ka also fill it up as much as possible you will incorporate much less air that way.

I'm actually not sure what the poll is asking.

I have heard that before - piling as much as you can get into the mixer and then set on sloooooow. Must work. I will try it, thanks.

If you mix a larger batch of icing (about 2 1/2 batches in a 5 qt. Kitchen Aid) it will be above the beater and won't incorporate so much air. I mix all the wet ingredients and then slowly add the powdered sugar.
