Has anyone heard of or tried putting a few drops of vinegar in B/C icing to keep it from cracking?

I have heard people saying to add anywhere from a teaspoon to two tablespoons. I notice that whenever my cakes seem to be cracking, it's not the icing, it the cardboard supporting the cake allowing it to move. I double or triple the cardboard, then no more cracking.
