I painted leopard print on butter cream for the 1st time and the colors bleed :( I thought I researched enough to do it right....does anyone have any tips to prevent this? I used the gel colors mix with vodka.. I have to do another cake with leopard print on fondant and I don't want this to happen again...

AThere's a free class on Craftsy about painting on fondant. There are tons of videos on youtube as well. With BC I try to get it very firm before painting.

It's much easier to clean any smudges or streaks off the fondant. If you need to practice roll out a piece of fondant and work on your consistency.

thank you for that..the buttercream was firm. I painted the leopard print and the cake looked great but after taking the cake out and condensation forming on the cake the black started to bleed on sides of cake...how can I avoid that?....I did view some tutorials and read several blogs  as I had never done this before but I wasn't prepared for the bleeding dripping down the cake
