Has anyone multiplied Sugar Shacks icing and made it in a 20qt. Hobart Mixer. Need help!!!!!!

I multiplied her recipe by 4 and when I mixed it in my Hobart it tasted like the shortening (not enough Powdered Sugar and I know I added the right amount). So I added more sugar and when I got it to what I thought it was the right sweetness I stopped. Then when I put it on my cake I could not use the diamond pattern on it, it was to sticky (it was in the fridge overnight). I have never had these problems with a single recipe. Also there was to much air when mixing but if I would have added another recipe it would have came out the top of my mixer.

Someone please help!!!! I love this recipe and we bought the mixer just for icing.

No I've never multiplied it, but I'm sure if you PM Sharon she'd be able to answer your question, she's very helpful.

Did you use Sweetex hi-ratio?

Yes we do use Sweetex. I will try but I believe she just uses a 5qt. mixer.

well, doing the recipe x4 might not work cuz the shape of the bowl has an impact too. I have one friend who adjusted it to a big mixer years ago; let me see if I can contact her.

I will be interested in knowing, There was diffenitly to much air going into the BC. I love your recipe and I am hoping to make it in larger batches.

Thanks again
