I am wondering what to use with white buttercream. I am making a large sheetcake at the end of August. It will be outside and very hot. I am going to use Indydebi's buttercream. It is a retirement party for a dairy plant employee. I was wanting to put large black fondant spots for a cow on the cake, but am afraid of the dreaded hot pink, purple bleed, especially because of the heat.

I figure, that MMF, would surely melt, so I was wondering if it would be better to order a pre-made black fondant or would a Wilton white tinted black bleed?

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I use Satin Ice. It should be fine as long as the fondant doesn't slip down the side. Or the frosting doesn't melt and slide.

IndyDebi's frosting is really good in the heat. So I really think you'll be fine. Just roll your fondant thin. And don't put it out in the heat until you have to.

I my experience in coloring white fondant black is that it takes so much color and the fondant becomes soft. I bought the satin ice black and it worked fine.
