Buttercream doubling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been making the House Buttercream from The Whimsical Bakehouse cookbook for quite some time. I love working with it. I love the texture and taste; however, I can never get the yield. I follow the recipe to a T in my KitchenAid stand mixer but I always end up with a scant 6 cups (instead of 9). Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or does this recipe contain a typographic error?

Do you think they are whipping it more?  Three cups is a lot though.  It might be an error or they just didn't test the single recipe before they printed it.

Thank you for responding. The recipe calls for 10-20 minutes of whipping on medium high. I've only whipped 20 minutes but I figured after that point that nothing is going to happen if it hasn't already. I use the whipping wisk attachment too, but no luck. I guess I better get used to having 6 cups instead of 9.

The KA wire whip with the extra wires in it do a much better job.  Super duper whipping.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
