I really hope someone can help me with this, it’s driving me mental!

I have a fabulous victoria sponge recipe which I make with dairy free margarine because my son’s allergic to milk. Using my old stand mixer which had beater attachments like you’d get on a hand-held mixer the recipe worked every time. Now I’ve changed my stand mixer to one with a paddle attachment and my cake mix is curdling every time. I haven’t changed anything else so I can only assume it’s the mixer. The cake is still coming out fine once it’s baked, but it’s really bugging me that it’s doing this.

Does anyone have any advice for how I can sort this out?

Thanks for the advice. I’ll try playing around with the temperature of the margarine, but I’m using it at the exact same temperature as I used to. The only variable I can think of is the new mixer.
