add some corn starch to the black BC it will prevent most of the bleed

There is a wedding cake in my photos that is white with black piping. No bleed at all. Whenever I have to do black I ask the client if I can use chocolate frosting for the black. Plain old canned dark chocolate frosting is very near black anyway so I dont have to use a ton of black coloring to make it black. Plus canned frosting dries fast so the color sets quickly.

I too have made chocolate frosting first and then tinted it with a little black. No bleeding, plus it tastes alot better.
