Dewie, you can use your BC recipe just don't add as much liquid. You want a firm stiff frosting. It's all in the consistancy, if it's too thick it will crack too thin it will droop. Play around with it an try it until it's the right consistancy. If you're recipe has a lot of butter replace some of it with shortening or what ever you use, sweetex etc.
