I've made this twice now, but instead of using a double boiler, I melt in the microwave. Half power, increments of 30 seconds, and keep a keen eye on it. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly and was so impressed with the outcome and the ease of it, I decided to use it with a few twists to ice my boyfriend's birthday cake. I added a couple shots of whiskey and omitted the corn syrup for that. The outcome was a more shell-like covering, but still very good. This icing also looks great with a powder sugar stencil to decorate it (but do it just before you serve it, as the sugar will absorb any oil in the icing and get goopy).
