Help! I need suggestions on how to prevent icing colors from bleeding on my cookies. I am having issues with black and blue mostly. Usually the cookie is iced with white icing then the detail is put on. I have tried making lighter black icing but that doesn't help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
what icing recipe?
You have to make sure that the bottom icing is set, if not completely dry before adding more detail, especially in other colors. I will say that if you are using a glaze recipe, it easily bleeds...so definitely give yourself more time to make sure that the bottom layer is completely dry.
Those dark colors tend to bleed if the coloring of it is freah. Better chance of no bleeding if the colored icing is a couple of days old.
