I only mix my BC on low and that seems to eliminate the bubble issue. If I crank it up too high and get bubbles then I just smash the BC against the bowl with a rubber spatula to get rid of the bubbles.

If you aren't filling your mixer to the top of the paddle, you're whipping air into the buttercream. Always make a full batch.
