Cake: After the 20 seconds has ended - check to see that s/r four, bicarb soda and milk have mixed well into other ingredients. If it hasn't, mix for another 10 seconds on speed 4 until it has.

Icing: The 1 minute is a guide depending on how fast/slow you pour, please check to make sure butter and Dextrose powder are well mixed. 

I used 5 bananas as I had 5 that needed to be used. You can try less 2-3 bananas instead - to keep fructose levels down.
