Trouble with icing bleeding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I use Bunnywoman's buttercream icing recipe. Is there a way to prevent black icing from bleeding onto white buttercream? I need to make a black and white buttercream cake this weekend and I don't want it to look like crap. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi,

What I usually do, that works for me when i have to use blk on anything especially my buttercream.

I do whatever it is that I need to do in black on my cake BUT in WHITE 1ST. Ex: If i need to write on my cake in black, I white whatever it is in white first and then go over it in black. This creates a barrier btwn my cake and the black icing. IT NEVER FAILS ME icon_smile.gif

Part of the answer is to have your blk icing made ahead of time. If you save all the little bits of icing of ALL Colors together in a container (I keep a jar in the fzr( and add all leftover icing that's say less than a 1/4 cup as you finish each day's decorating. When you need some blk, take it out and stir it well; now add some blk gel using as little gel as possible to get a dark gray.
Another way to make blk is to start w/chocolate icing icon_smile.gif
