How do you keep dark buttercream from bleeding on you white icing. Yesterday I delivered a cake that had dark blue writing on it and by the time I got to delivery the blue had starting running. Of course the cake was sweating because it was coming up to room temp. I always travel with my cakes cold but with this heat and humidity they seem to be sweating an awful amount.
