I don't know the product, but if it doesn't crust add some more icing sugar to it, as crusting is related to fat/sugar ratio. More sugar = more crust.

I used it once when I was traveling and needed to decorate a cake real quick at a friend's house. It was OK - not great, but not bad.

I always recommend making it from scratch, frosting is just one of those things that tastes the best homemade! yummm! my own personal tip is i add about a Tablespoon of merangue powder to my icing and it crusts up well. I also find half butter half shortning seems to get the best taste with the best crust. icon_biggrin.gif
