either scrape it off and do it over, or just add another layer of icing. I get that once in awhile and I add the layer. What happened is she waited too long after it crusted to run the roller.

I agree with debi. I think the icing probably crusted too much before trying to smooth it, or perhaps it is settling quite a bit. Unfortunately I dont think there is much you can do to fix it except re-do it or live with it.
