I shy away from words like "best" because something is best only in each person's personal opinion (geesh, the discussions I've had over Jif vs. Peter Pan as far as being "the best"! icon_lol.gif )

But the only icing I've used for 25 years is this one: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-491583-0.html

I never had any problems with crusting, even with zero trans fat crisco ... i never even noticed a difference.

It crusts very well but remains soft inside. On my basketweave cakes, I can pick the top tier up by the sides (my hands touching the basketweave icing) and place it on the cake without any damge, but when the cake is cut, the icing is still nice and soft on the inside. It holds up in 90+ degree outside receptions.
