I need to make a massive amount of buttercream icing for 2 weddings that are back to back. I have access to a commercial mixer. Would love to have my very own, but that's a whole separate issue. icon_smile.gif
Anyway, my question is...can I just multiply the recipe? Can I multiply everything times 5 and still get good results? Or is there a different recipe for making buttercream in bulk? I did some searches and couldn't find anything.
Thanks for the help!!!

I don't see why there would be a problem. When you multiply cake recipes you don't change anything.

the only thing i've found when multiplying is sometimes i have to cream my shortening/butter longer to get it mixed well and really creamy. But an extra couple of minutes you should be good.

Ok thanks! Guess I was just thinking of doubling recipes when cooking. Sometimes if you double spices and things it makes your dish turn out weird! lol!! Just wanted to get a second opinion before I wasted 30 lbs of buttercream. icon_smile.gif
Thanks again!
