Here's a recipe that doesn't taste buttery or greasy, crusts and it's great for high humidity. Instead of 1/2 cup milk, I use flavored coffee creamer (chocolate raspberry and caramel hazelnut and they were both delicious!). You can either use Viva paper towel method of the Melvira method. It turns out great and the kids love it!!
This is a recipe from vrmcc1/Val. She has posted this in the recipe section but for some reason it hasn't come up.

This is a crusting buttercream so I keep bowl covered with a damp towel to keep it from crusting while I decorating with it. make enough to ice and decorate a 1/4 sheet cake. I will post this in the recipe section also. Hope this helps.
