Need stiff frosting to withstand 90' heat outside...

bgbc | Sep 26, 2010 10:17 AM

Made a carrot cake for a local harvest festival cakewalk and now see it's going to be 90' outside today. Yikes! The cream cheese frosting I made -- already sloppy -- won't stand a chance.

Would love a good recipe for a stiff frosting that will work on a carrot cake (no raisins or nuts, includes walnut oil, otherwise fairly basic).

I read through this thread on what makes cream cheese frosting runny, and can try and figure out a very low sugar version. But I'm down to one packet of cream cheese left so would rather not waste it on an experiment...
