a great non-grainy icing/frosting

Hi everyone..I'm planning on making Bittoni's chocolate bean cake for turkey day..but i'm worried about the icing..i;ve tried to make forsting/icing before and it was soooo grainy..I powdered my sugar subs,maybe not enoogh, but is there any other method to ensure a smooth creamy frosting,icing..and any suggestions for a grate icing to go with this cake?

If I use powdered erythritol and sift it to make sure the lumps are out, it's fine. not grainly at all. good luck.
