Need some help. When ever I use buttercream or shortening with my scraper or a comb I get holes or uneven icing I describe as pulling it’s like the icing starts piling away from the cake. I’ve tried chilling the icing but still don’t get a perfect look. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello   1st off i see this is your first post on here so you will not be able to reply to any post for about 30 days If you want to say anything just start a new post referring to this one (or the one you are talking about) in the subjec/title line      Now about your problem w/o the recipe we can only guess   I think the icing is too thick   Sounds like it needs to be creamier  — try adding more fat be it butter or shortening &/or mix it longer on low speed — up to 10 minutes
