I have been asked to do a wedding cake at the end of May. I live in Oklahoma, so you never really know for sure what the weather will be. What is the best buttercream icing to use in case of warm or humid, or both weather?

I had planned on using the Sam's buttercream icing, but now I'm not sure. She wants white buttercream on two tiers and white buttercream and black dots on the middle. I am already thinking maybe I should use black fondant dots, in case it runs.

Thanks for any input, it is greatly appreciated!

In all modesty, icon_rolleyes.gif , mine: http://cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-6992-Indydebis-Crisco-Based-Buttercream-Icing.html

Held up in 90+ degree heat in August in Indiana humidity (which is so heavy, it really makes you bend over when you walk). Sat outside for over 5 hours. I've never had a meltdown.

Debi - you haven't had any issues with the milk being in the heat?

Not in the last 30 years...... It's the only icing I've ever used. Milk and sugar stablize each other. Now, I know there's a certain ratio it has to be, and I've no idea what it is ... but I must be within it, because it works for me.
