Cake decorators!!! HELP!!!

My icing is sticking to my cake, making it all crumbly...I was reading that it might be due to the frosting being too stiff. It's room temp, but should I add more liquid? It's the Wilton boxed icing mix that I used.

HELP.
I'd probably add a teensy bit more liquid, just a wee bit at a time, 'til it's a better consistency.

I HATE making frosting. It's always spackle-esque. I've given up entirely and now just buying. I only cop to buying it, though, if someone asks. If no one says anything, I keep my mouth shut.

Icing might well be too thick! Also did you put a crumb coat on? (this is a very thin coat of soft icing to seal the cake)

Thanks!!!
Have you tried some light corn syrup to thin it?
