AAACKKK! I'm finishing a cake, and I'm stuck.....when I made werewolf cuppies for Halloween the teeth and the eyes (white of course) faded into the dark brown as they dried, so I re-piped them and the same thing happened again. Here's the bad thing; I can't remember if I used RI or BC for the white, and I have to do white over black on the cake I'm working on now.

Has anyone ever had this happen, and was it with RI or BC??

A MILLION thanks for your help!

In my experience the dark colors could've soaked into either one... bc or ri, but I don't have as much problem with the royal. It depends on how "wet" your icings are. I would either go with RI or use a white bc with extra crisco in it. The extra crisco slows down the bleeding. Good luck!

Ahhhh shoot! I went ahead and did them in bc last night; guess I should go over them with royal. Even when I think I'm finished I'm not! Thank you for your help though, I appreciate it!
