I am ready to purchase a 12 quart Hobart from a local pizza shop that went out of business. So investigating large recipes for batter and buttercreams. I have always been afraid to do more than triple recipes of anything for fear the batter or icing would get too off kilter. Am I right? or is there nothing to worry about?

Anybody have some good large batch recipes to share?

AI don't ever use mine because it makes my icing too airy:-( I use it for huge batches of batter, but I am a mix Baker. I don't have any problem, except when I need a the bottom :-) I did find some at decopac that aren't too pricy. They are the Longest they have in the solid one piece design.

WoooHooo!  Nice find!  And you'll be fine :)  I've never had a problem multiplying batches, just triple check your math, measure correctly, and if your familiar with your mixing process in a small batch,  you'll know what to look for in the large batch.  Of course you may have some trial and errors, but regardless, totally worth it to have a big mixer. Good Luck!
