Add more powdered sugar, it will crust faster.

If you are frosting a cake out of the freezer, it's probably condensation that's preventing it from crusting properly.  Try on a room temperature cake and see if it works out.  If yes, then problem solved.  If no, then your frosting recipe needs tweaking (more sugar as suggested).
