I have an old-time recipe for cooked butter icing consisting of butter, sugar,milk, white karo, vanilla. Cook to soft ball stage. Beat until thick enough to spread. The problem is: it hardens before I can get all of the cake iced and then when it hardens on cake,it "chips" off the cake when it is cut. Help me figure out what I am doing wrong please.
