Can you post the whole recipe? I am thinking you have an issue with the whipping cream turning to butter..but I can't say unless I can research the full recipe. : )

If there's actual butter in it and it's not all shortening, you might be making some of the butter solidify if you add cold whipping cream to it. If you heat the cream up then add it that might take care of it.

If there's no butter in it then I don't know!

I use all butter and cold whipping cream - but I add the whipping cream about mid way through so that the butter is nearly mixed completely with the sugar, that way it can't react. : )

Are you whipping the cream too much? Maybe you're inadvertently converting it to butter. I make butter from whipping cream.

Try warming the liquids/whipping cream up in the microwave a little anyway, it might help. I doubt that you're making butter from the whipping cream, unless you're whipping the icing on high for a really long time. Especially if it's mixed in with the sugar, it would take a lot to make it into butter.

I posted a recipe awhile ago and have made some changes since that have made it even better! This recipe is almost pure white and crusts well.
Ingredients
1 cup butter (room temp)
1 cup all vegetable shortening
8 cups icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 fluid ounces of International Delight Coffee Creamer
2 fluid ounces unwhipped whipping cream
Instructions
Directions

1. Cream shortening and butter until fluffy. Add confectioners sugar and continue creaming until well blended.
2. Add salt and cream mixture blend on low speed until moistened. Add additional whipping cream if necessary (up to 2 ounces). Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy.

Get rid of the coffee creamer and add a little vanilla and you have the basic recipe for confectioner's sugar buttercream. You'll need 6 oz of a liquid, whether it's milk, half and half or cream.

Start with creaming the butter and shortening, then add the liquid and beat it until it's smooth. Then add the sugar. I still say that you should try to heat the liquid a little, but if you do it the way that I just described it should work. Use half and half instead of the whipping cream and coffee creamer.
