I would make sure to dry off the hot spatula before you actually touch it to the cake. If the water is hot enough it will keep the heat without any water touching the icing. Good luck..I know how you feel, I always have at least one disaster per cake...Personally what I would do, which is probably wrong, is put the cake in the fridge for about an hour to get some distance then take it from there.
