How long has is been crusting, some times it takes longer in the humidity
I use the recipe here from Sugarshack, No fail, works beautifully every time, but it makes alot and you have to use a standup mixer for this one,
Try to refridgerate a bit and see if it sets up better, then continue

Try indydebi's recipe on this site. Crust great and taste very good. Here's a link to the recipe http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-6992-0-Indydebis-Crisco-Based-Buttercream-Icing.html

This should bring up her tutorial, I hope . I'm not to great at this link thing, if it dosn't come up, just type in utube in your google or yahoo search, then search buttercream, hers is a few down, under sugarshack by sugar ed procudtions. HTH
