Hi everyone! For the past year, I've had a Sunbeam mixer which of course doesn't compare to a kitchenaid. I just got a really nice 6qt professional kitchenaid and I want to make sure I am not over or under mixing my icing! I'm making Indydebi's BC. Since my Sunbeam only had the beater attachments (or dough hook), I always used that. I am assuming I use the beater blade for the kitchenaid and not the wisk, right? And what speed should I be mixing it on? Thank you for any help!!
Use the beater blade. Mix on low until it's all combined, then turn it up a notch or two and let it do its thing. If you turn it higher than low before it's combined, everything will fly right out of the bowl and onto your kitchen walls...speaking from experience here and powder sugar stings when it goes up your nose.
Thank you! I had a feeling I was maybe doing it wrong and I was! I was doing it on low the whole time, thinking that if I turned it up it would over mix....but the last time I made this recipe it turned out different than when I use the Sunbeam. I just made a batch and took your advice and turned it up to 3 and it's much better this time! Thanks again!
