I iced a cake last night. I answered the phone and when I came back the icing had separated. It slid off the cake and just looked awful. I scraped it off and added another 1/2 lb. of powdered sugar to it just to get it to hold shape. I don't know what happened. I use 1/2 crisco and 1/2 butter crusting buttercream. My kitchen was cool. I've never had icing to look like that before. Has anyone ever had this to happen?
