Hi. I'm a gator too but I'm in Lake county. Probably would be safer using the shortening/10X buttercream. If you can find bettercream it is a non dairy frosting that comes in vanila and chocolate. Tastes just like softserve ice cream and does not have to be refrig. This is what I use for my school carnivals etc because it holds up so well in our wonderful 100 degrees with 100% humidity. hth icon_biggrin.gif

whipped cream buttercream in the recipe section is heat and humidity stable.
