Not sure if that heading is techniqually correct but what I am trying to do is 2 things...
1. multiply a recipe by 4, 5 and 6 to see what will fit in my 6qt KA mixer (and make this cover beater for no air hole buttercream)...the specific recipe that I am currently trying is Indydebi'd Buttercream. I found a simple converter at
This seems to work well...does anyone see why this would not work?
If not I will stay with the reults I got
2. The measurements are so big though I'd be better off weighing most ingredients. I am having issues doing this because I am not sure what to convert to especially the shortening....wet or dry??? Cups to pounds???
Hope I am making sense. I know this can be done easily just having a hard time trying to figure it out.
Should anyone have this recipe figured out for a 6QT KA by measure or by weight if you could send that to me I would truely appreciate it.
When I measured out a cup of crisco and weighted it it was almost 7oz, so that is the number I use when I weight crisco. A little more or less isn't going to hurt anything.
I agree with texassugar. I would weigh the shortening on my scale and then use that number. By weighing it on your scale, it doesn't matter if it is considered liquid or solid. I believe it is a solid, BTW.
