Is there any kind of "magical" way to keep black buttercream from bleeding/hazing into white? icon_cry.gificon_surprised.gificon_redface.gificon_sad.gif

It helps if you wait until your white buttercream has crusted (if you're using a crusting recipe), before you pipe any black icing on it.

I used the pre-made, pre-tinted tubes of Wilton icing that were black to do a cake recently and I was amazed that it didn't bleed. Or maybe I just got lucky lol
