Have you tried Indydebi's recipe yet?

Try with high ratio shortening and no butter. The shortening helps the icing hold up way better than crisco.

Also Charlottte's whipped Cream Buttercream. There's no whipped cream in it. Recipe in the Recipe Section. Does not crust, but completely heat and humidity stable.

Single recipe
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup meringue powder
Mix in 1/2 cup boiling water
Whip to medium firm peaks.
Add in 1 Tablespoon clear vanilla, or your choice of flavorings.

Beat in 1 pound of confectioner's sugar. Whip to stiff peak.

Whip in 1 pound of vegetable shortening. The mixture will deflate and you
will think that it is ruined. It is not ruined! Just let the mixer
continue to whip and the volume will come back to where it was before the
addition of the fat.

If you have a few more minutes, change to the flat beater and mix on the
slowest speed to get out some of the air.

A very soft icing, light and fluffy, easy to spread and naturally smooth.
Minimal crusting, generally considered a non-crusting icing. Also very
repairable for those little "dings."
