Have a new 5 quart Kitchenaid mixer. I am having trouble with holes in my cakes! I did have a 4 1/2 quart. I always used #2 speed to mix when using a cake mix. Never had holes. Now, I have holes! I am wandering if the extra power may have something to do with it. What speed do you use? The manual says #4, but I can see the bubbles in the batter and sure enough have holes. So, I cut the speed down to #2. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I crank mine up high to just be done with it, lol. I never have a problem, but I fill mine to the top.
