I am needing to make a birthday cake with black zebra stripes made out of fondant put on a white buttercream cake.

My black fondant is dark chocolate Satin Ice fondant that I made black using Wilton Black coloring. I have read alot about black bleeding onto buttercream.

Will my black fondant bleed if I put it as accents on a white covered buttercream cake? And if so, what can I do to prepare for the bleeding not to happen?

First time working with black, pretty worried about it.

Thanks for the help.

I do it all the time too!.. Just be careful with the glue if you put too much then it might drip!..
