Good day everyone! I'm live in the Bahamas and I've been into cake decorating for a while now. However in the Bahamas is extremely hotttttt! Unfortunately heat and icing are not very good friends! I'm trying to find a stable buttercream that would not run off the cake when its too hot, has good flavor and is not too girtty. I read alot about emulsified/sweetex shortening but in the Bahamas NO ONE on none of the islands carries this emulisifed shortening, Just Crisco, bakerite and a few others. Can I get some recipe help here PLEASEEEEE!

I would suggest trying Indydebbie's recipe. It holds up great the the heat and tastes great. I sometimes exchange a little of the milk for some flavoured coffee cream and it is absolutely devine!

Have you tried Indydebi's Crisco based buttercream? I've used it a couple times, but then I tried ganache awhile back and haven't really used much buttercream since then. I liked it when I used it and I know a lot of people on here really like it. Although I didn't use it during hot weather, they say it holds up very well.

Yep, Indydebi's for sure. I used it in 100+ degree Texas heat. No problem.
