Icing Disaster

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This weekend I made my cake. As always, I made the same icing as I always do, the Wilton buttercream, using 1/2 butter-1/2 shortening. Well,for some reason, the icing would not crust over( yes, I used meringue powder) so I could smooth it and it seemed to settle to droop and a sag icon_sad.gif . The weather in CA was humid and I did not even add all the liquid I was supposed to thin down my icing. I am afraid to use this recipe again. For fear of droopy cakes. Can anyone tell me what went wrong. Have any recipes you like to share?
Tanks in advance,
Michelle
