Hello everyone, my question, is there a way to apply rice paper to buttercream and not have the colors of the design run or bleed? I use vanilla to apply the paper. Thanks
Try to apply it directly to the cake before the buttercream crusts and see if that helps.
Thanks from one Lisa to another. I also noticed when I travelled with the cake on the car on quite a hot, humid day here, the icing softened and the paper was a little easier to reattach.
You're welcome Lisa! I'm not sure how you're using the rice paper but have you thought of using frosting sheets instead? They cost a bit more but they're not as prone to bleeding/running and they melt right into buttercream. You can't even tell they're there.
I know it's been a while since this discussion first began, but for anyone out there still looking for this answer...
Everything I've read online says to apply clear piping gel to the back of the rice paper to have it stick to the cake.
Thanks, this was amongst my internet searches for the answer. I'll try the clear piping gel.
You're very welcome. Let me know how it works out!
