Does anyone have any tips on how to keep the red from bleeding into the white frosting? Thanks in advance for your help.

I have not either! How much red do you put into your batter? icon_smile.gif

Neither have I, but if you are having that problem crumb coat your cake first with a very thin layer of icing (so you can just about see through it. Let it set for about 20 to 30 minutes and then put your regular coat of icing on.

I have never had that problem either. What recipe are you using for your cake and icing?

i think you used too much color the the cake was frozen or refrigerated and sweated????

I always fridge my cakes but never had this happen.
I also only use 2 tbs coloring
