I need a spot of advice on making buttercream icing. Not the recipe, I'm ok with that, it's the making of the stuff that is flumuxing me. Butter nicely softened and icing sugar in the bowl, start the Kenwood hand mixer and whoosh, clouds of fine icing sugar dust all over the kithen, and I mean everywhere! Tried just beating the butter with the mixer and slowly adding a spoonful of icing sugar at a time to the bowl, but got pretty much the same amount of dust all over the place.
I don't have a mixer jobby with a top on nor the funds to buy one. What on earth is the best way to make buttercream icing without having to clean the entire blardy kitchen afterwards?
