Buttercream & Mixer Q

Up With Olives | Mar 22, 2008 03:34 PM

I am going to try a buttercream recipe for the decorations on a cake. Both recipes I'm considering (one is for "easy vanilla bean buttercream frosting" but I'm leaning towards the "swiss meringue buttercream" ) specify a standard mixer with whisk attachment, then later a paddle attachment. I don't have those fancy tools. i have a plain old hand mixer. Will this present a problem?

I'm no expert on this so I appreciate the word of experience.
