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.
Alright, maybe between us we can figure it out. What kind of sugar do you use? I use C&H right now. I am also using sweetex shortening. You?
