  16. Hi Nky great job you're doing! Please my question is just a tiny one: what brand of butter do you recommend for butter icing that can withstand Nigerian heat? I noticed imported brands like oldenburger, elle and vire always melt I about 30 minutes. And getting crisco is almost impossible and even at when I once found it, th price scared me away. I hope you get to see my message. Thanks a lot.
