AScrape off the icing, make a stiffer icing (shortening based) and re-ice. If it's melting, I wouldn't risk using the same kind of icing again.

Thank you, I scraped off what I could, It set up again.  I fixed what I could and delivered it.  3 hrs late but.. it was not an event or party were time was a factor.  The customer was happy in the end.  But I will never do that again.  Thank you again for answering.
