I'm doing a wedding cake in January that has black (and maybe red) piping on white fondant. I've never done one with that color combo and i'm nervous about the black bleeding on the white. I use MMF and either royal icing or buttercream to pipe with.

Does it actually bleed? And if it does, what is a good way to prevent it? Is there a better frosting to use to pipe that wont bleed? TIA!!!

icon_confused.gif What is everyone gonna start adding this disclaimer now? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Lol...just kidding Wild. Stick to RI or even black piping gel (my personal fave). The BC has more of a chance to seep.

LOL! Just gotta be clear around here!

Do you make piping gel or buy it pre-made? I've never used it before...

I get the fairly large tubs of it in the Wilton aisle, it's clear and doesn't need much color to get rich black, way less than RI or BC would require.
