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 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
