I've read, reread, "you tubed", and have been practicing but..need to do a cake with BC frosting, friend wants black damask on the sides (round). My first practice I used RI for the stencil & it seemed to hold up well-no bleeding & didn't "melt" off. I tried again using black BC and basically appeared to have the same effect-except to me it didn't seem as "sharp". This will be for a small wedding but I have to have it done the night before and travel several hours the next day to the wedding-which would be the "better" icing to do the stencil in-BC or RI? I can refrigerate after making and I travel with it boxed & dry iced to keep it cool. Appreciate any advice or words of wisdom you can offer!
Not sure if this will help you. Its buttercream on buttercream, not sure if black buttercream will bleed or not and how well buttercream will hold up in a long car ride.
I wouldn't take any chances. Go with the RI. I've had to do the black on white before and sometimes it takes a while before you see bleeding. Just bring some extra RI with you as sometimes during transport any un-adhered RI can chip off. :)
I meant "bleeding with the BC on BC". The RI doesn't bleed.
