I have a cake that needs to be frosted in the dead heat of summer. The party will be outside and the average temp will be about 100. Is there a frosting that will stand up to this heat?
Also, I have a problem with keeping my frosting from softening quickly when I'm working with it. I have hot hands, I am lost at how to frost cakes without using 5 bags and rotating them out.

Any suggestions to the above problems would be greatly appreciated.

~Thank you~

I've never tried it myself but I heard IndyDebi's Buttercream is the go-to recipe for hot summer cakes! I've heard great things about it! Good luck!

I'm in Texas - it is HOT and the humidity is awful. I have used Indydebi's buttercream several times for outdoor events and it has done great. No guarantees, of course, and I'm always very nervous, but I haven't lost a cake yet.
