After I transfer the royal icing figure onto the cake, the darker colors start to bleed. I know it does this because the bc starts breaking down the royal icing. Is there anyway that I can keep this from happening? Don't want to keep wax paper under it, woudn't want little ones to get ahold to it. Any adive would be helpful. TIA

After your transfer is dry you could flip it over and untinted royal icing along the back of it. Not only will it help with the bleeding, but it will add strength to your royal icing transfer.

Good luck!

use dabs of choc to attche it so the plaque does not actually touch the icing

I just realized I left out several words in my previous post and I don't see the 'edit' option.

It should say, "flip it over and *pipe* untinted royal icing along the back.... then let that dry..."
