I have been using this buttercream icing recipe for a while now, and its held up well so far.So.....im in the car, right. with the air on FULL BLAST and the icing was getting a little droopy. by the time i got the cake from the parking lot on to the table in the resturaunt the wall of icing on the cake was basicly sliding off like fondant!!!. . now im new with cake decorating and stuff, but how can buttercream icing melt in a car thats near 60 degrees(exagerated maybe 65-72) . it was about 83 deg outside but i wasnt outside for longer than 1-2 mins. the cake was my for my grandma so she loved it anyway.(only the decoration on the top was left )(more exageration. there was still icing on the sides.srry im very dramatic ). someone plz explain why the cake gods shamed me that day lol.
