I did a practice cake this weekend using Pettinice (?sp) as recommended by my instructor. It's a great tasting fondant not too sweet. It wasn't the best to work with in that it tore easily (glad it was only a practice cake), but I fudged it and figured I could cover with decorations. I decided to use up my Christmas colored buttercream (green & red), so I piped red shells around the bottom and top (8" round), piped a poinsettia, and green drapes. I left it overnight in a cool dry place (no refrigeration), and next morning the red had bled. The green was okay. What did I do wrong?
