I have been using the BC Dream recipe found here for at least 2 years and I love do my customers. It always crusted great.
I needed help with a big order, so I had my cousin helping me out this week. She made some batches for me, but they will not crust.
I have been researching this and have found that she may have overwhipped it, or even that the new Crisco with 0 Trans Fat has contributed to this dilemma. Since she made 8 batches, I was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to fix this so it does crust regardless of the reason.

Anyone else having trouble with this "new" Crisco?

I am also currently googling a source of hi ratio shortening? Any tips?

Hmmm...not sure if would work but maybe you can try and add meringue powder?

I always use this receipe and have never had any problems with it. I use the "new" crisco so I doubt that is the culprit. Did your friend follow the receipe just as it was written? Is it humid where you are? I would add some meringue powder....and see what happens. Good luck!!

I always use the Buttercream Dream recipe and never have had a problem. I use the new crisco too, so not sure what happened. Great idea to try meringue powder.

You were right! She measured wrong! Thank goodness all it took was adding more sugar.
Thank you all!
