I am covering a cake in white buttercream frosting. I am going to do a black damask stencil on the white buttercream. Do I need to be concerned about the black bleeding onto the white icon_eek.gif . Has anyone had any experience with this? If you have any helpful hints or tips I would really appreciate them. I was going to do the stenciling the day before the pick up, just in case I ran into a problem. My concern is if I do it to far ahead of time and the black bleeds.......I'll be up a creek. TIA

I fretted so much about stenciling I just ended up buying cutters and doing the damask pattern that way with fondant instead.

I know there are several on here that are very good with the stenciling, I am sure one of them will chime in here soon. I know I would practice with it to see how it will work out too.

i HAVE NOT HAD IT BLEED, AND IF YOU BUY THE BLACK WILTON ICING IN THE TUBE, IT IS PERFECT FOR STENCILING!

oops, was not yelling, but I am too lazy to retype it. sorry!

Agree...I've also used it without any bleeding.

Thanks, I will try the wilton black in the tube. Will I need to add piping gel to thin it out at all?
