I've been reading up on how to smooth out buttercream icing on cakes. And a lot of instructions say to be sure you're using crusting buttercream icing.

Does anyone know if Wilton's recipe for BC icing crusts?

If you are talking about the Wilton recipe that you use for the classes then yes it does crust. I just finished a class and found it pretty easy to work with and it smooths nicely with parchment paper after you let it sit for about 10-15 min or longer

Wilton's buttercream (all shortening) definitely crusts.
