I need to do a cake in B/C that will be iced white with red decorations. Anyone have any good tips on keeping the dark colors from bleeding into the white???
I find that if the cake and frosting is cold, the colors won't bleed. I refrigerate my cakes, especially with red or black frosting.
If it's BC ..... if the icing has crusted and the flowers have air dried, you wont' have any bleeding at all. I've read about colors bleeding, but it's never happened to me. And I do red decors all the time.
Make that color days ahead. It's freshly colored icing that most likely bleed.
Use powdered color if you can find it.
As Indydebi said,,,,,air dry your decos.
I would stay away from friging the cake if at all possible....condensation will certainly lead to bleeding
I totally agree with kakeladi. Stay away from refrigerating the cake because the condensation will make them bleed. Just make sure everything has crusted and you should be fine.
