Do you have a picture of the effect you want?

No I'm soo sorry..basically just how do you part your sections off with coloring without colors bleeding onto eachother at the border? Hope this makes sense..I'm doing a texas shaped cake and it has 3 divided colors, if you google some ideas on the texas shape, you can see the colors sectioned off.

Thanks so much!

Colored icing probably won't bleed into the other icing.
If you are just using food color it might be more unstable.

You just pipe it or spread it on there--if it's gonna bleed--how it's applied is not a factor. If you make the icing with milk it will be less likely to bleed--and watch the chill factor so it doesn't condensate.

I don't think I fully understand your question.

You can pipe an outline around each section first--is that what you mean?

Yes, I will pipe an outline first then fill in the sections of texas state...I didn't want colors to run over other colors from the outline mainly. I don't use milk in my icing so it should be ok..I'll try it.
