Warm Hands Melt Icing

Q: …my hands are so hot that they melt the icing in the bag! Whipped cream, butter cream, meringue, etc. I don’t know how to keep my hands from melting the icing while I’m piping! Taelor Cragen‎

A: Use smaller piping bags and don’t fill them full. I almost always make two for each tip/color if I’m piping a lot. I have also laid out one of those freezer packs you put in lunchboxes. I frequently just lay my hands on them for a minute or two. Tami Turlington Clifton

Have you tried freezing gloves then putting them on. Tana Whitfield
