For A Stronger Buttercream, Switch Up Your Mixer Attachment
For a strong buttercream frosting that can stand up to the structural challenges cakes often face, use a stand mixer and swap out the whisk attachment for the paddle.
The paddle is designed to mix and beat ingredients. It leaves buttercream with a strong consistency, a structural integrity, and keeps it bubble-free.
Put the frosting in a mixing bowl, secure it under the paddle attachment, and beat it at low to medium speed for a few minutes. This gentle mixing will result in a sturdy frosting.
After a minute or so, stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. This ensures the frosting receives equal attention and that the buttercream has a consistent texture.
