I have a festival/fair this weekend where I'm supposed to sell cakes, the weather is supposed to be in the high 90's. Any hints on what type of icing to use? I'm hoping to avoid the wicked witch meets water bucket impression.

I either add 2 tblsp flour to my icing or dream whip powder for high humidity. Also you can use the HI Ration shortening to help instead of crisco but it is more expensive to use too.
