HELP! Frosting + RIDICULOUS humidity= ARGH!!!

chelleyd01 | Oct 6, 2007 07:13 AM

It's October. I have my central air on. Let me repeat...its OCTOBER! It is going to hit around 88 today and 86 tomorrow. We are doing simple cupcakes for a baby shower tomorrow afternoon and my partner in crime has been experimenting with a Wilton Cake Decorating Kit. She would like to gussy up the cupcakes and make cutie flowers and roses and all that jazz.

What would be the best frosting to use for decorating that might hold up until the shower? We have access to refridgerator space and my central air is on. Should the cupcakes be cold (like refridgerator cold) before we ice them?

Any other tips from my BakerChows would be great!
