Without the recipe, no one will be able to help figure it out.

You make icing thicker by adding more sugar or less liquid. I've never understood the "it makes it sweeter" theory .... it's all sugar. When you add sugar to sugar it doesn't make it sweeter, it just makes a bigger pile of sugar.

That said, I've tried a recipe that had double the fat of what I was used to using and all I could taste was the crisco. Super nasty! If that had been my only exposure to a crisco-based icing, I'd never use it again. But fortunately, I knew better. thumbs_up.gif
