If I want 4 stacked tiers to be the exact same color buttercream, yet can't make one huge batch (only have a 5 quart KA mixer), how do you ensure all colors are the same?
I know the logical answer is 'measure it' but 1/8 of a teaspoon seems like alot for a batch and that is my smallest measurement.
I am using Wilton food coloring paste gel
Mix each batch separately, then put them all in one really big bowl. Then just stir that together by hand. If you don't have a big enough bowl, take equal amounts of each and mix those by hand. Then keep repeating.
I had this problem with the star cake I made. All together it was seven tiers of whipped frosting. I went to Target and bought an extra large bowl with a snap on lid. I believe it was made by rubbermaid. I poured all of the carton of Frostin Pride in the bowl and mixed in the gel coloring. This way I could mix one batch at a time and everything would be the same color. The one thing I don't like about whipped frostings is the more you mix or work with it it starts to stiffen up. This is why I rather do each batch separately. I agree make all your batches of frosting and mix in one large bowl.
