I literally just got done making this ( Thursday, March 1st 2012) and I'll admit, I may be wrong (because maybe there is another type of "satin" icing out there,) but this is definitely not like the one bakeries get tubs of (which is what I was looking for). This has the consistency of whipped topping and I just didn't like anything about it.
Improvise a double boiler to make the icing by placing a metal bowl on top of a saucepan with boiling water. The bowl will be hot, so make sure you use hot pads. Water should not touch the bottom of the bowl, and be careful that no water splashes into the icing.
