My wife was making cake frosting and we didn’t have a hand mixer or power blender. And I thought using a whisk is too time-consuming. But I have an IKEA FIXA series cordless screwdriver/ drill, so, I made a hand mixer out of it and named it ‘FIXA-MIXA’.
It took about 5 minutes (and I had the electrical insulation tape handy.)
5. Adjust the torque settings depending on the consistency of the batter. (Warning: not recommended for denser batter)
The only thing to pay special attention to is to keep the whisk axis aligned with the drill’s axis while taping tight. Make sure you tape it nice and tight so that it does not fly off / get detached from the drill while rotating.
