I guess I have an unsteady hand.. but my buttercream wont smoothe.. sometimes i can get it really smoothe, but yesterday it wouldnt.. i even used the high ratio shortening.. let it crust,, and when i did the viva just wont smoothe.. it still has lil cracks in it and no matter how much i go over it,,, its just not fixing.. what do i do?

ATry to get it as smooth as possible before it crusts. Your icing might be too stiff.
