I just got a kitchenaid and I"m not sure which attachment to use on Buttercream. Is it the whisk/wire or the paddle attachment? Thank you!

You would use the paddle, the whisk is just for egg whites or whipped cream

Definitely the paddle. If you do a large enough batch to cover the paddle, you can let i go on a medium setting for 15 minutes...........you'll end up with the smoothest, creamiest icing ever with NO air bubbles!

Oops... I should have mentioned the method I listed above must be credited to Sharon Zambito. You can see her video demo here:

The best present you can get yourself and your new kitchenaid is the spatula-type attachment sold a amazon, sur la table,etc. It eliminates scraping the bowl and allows for continuous mixing.

I use the paddle and it seems to work just fine for me.
