I am looking for a good buttercream icing. I need one that doesn't have to stay in the fridge, that can hold up to stacking and carving and marshmallow fondant. It needs to be easy to make into chocolate or other flavors.

I made one yesterday and the taste was ok but it was really grainy. And I added cocoa powder to half and it got way to stiff.

Please share a good recipe with me.

If you go under the most saved recipes, the Buttercream Dream recipe is decent. I don't prefer crusting buttercreams but that one is ok. I have to have butter in my buttercream.
