Does Black Fondant Bleed Into Frosting Over Time?

I plan to use black Satin Ice for cutouts to decorate a red velvet cake and as a cupcake topper placed into whipped cream. Does black fondant bleed into these moist frostings? If it does-does anyone know how long it takes to do that?

I appreciate your response.

Here's a bump.

I would think that the whipped cream is wet enough it would make the fondant soft and perhaps gummy. I have black on white BC and never had any issues cuz it crusts.

You could always do a test with a small piece of fondant setting on the whipped cream. Also, are you going to leave the fondant out of the fridge? I don't normally refrigerate fondant. And will the whipped cream be O.K. to set out? I think I would be more concerned about the lack of fridge...

Either way, doing a small piece wouldn't hurt to try. You can just toss it out after you are done. icon_smile.gif

If you can cut out your black shapes - and let them dry for a day or two before placing them onto the whipped cream - that will help alot - otherwise if the shapes are soft and you put them on the whipped cream you will probably find that they will droop.

So just cut them out - and place them on the whippd cream at the last minute - if possible... that way they will look fresh and firm and won't bleed for you.

Thanks GI- I have the "notify me" box checked-could have just been a glitch somewhere. icon_smile.gif Thank you for the welcome. I enjoy CC very much since I stumbled upon it several months ago. It's a rare day that I do not stop by for at least a few minutes.
