What causes white dots to form in BC icing? Sometimes, when I ice a cake in BC after it dries white dots show up. I iced a cake with dark pink BC and the next morning it looked like it had "white measles". The color was mixed in very well.

That's happened to me before, and I found out that it was the salt not dissolving properly when mixed. I fixed it by dissolving it in the liquids before adding it to the mix.

I have the same thing happen to me twice! Are you using wilton colors? someone said it happens with wilton colors.

I don't use salt in my icing. I was thinking maybe its a dirty mixing bowl.

I don't use Wilton color or salt in my BC so it can't be either of those.
