Colors Bleeding - Please Help! I've Tried Everything!

IMG_6347

So take a look at the terrible bleeding in the picture. I've tried everything to stop this problem. In the example, the eyes were wet on wet, so I kind of expected some bleeding from the black into the white (although I'd love to know how to fix this), but then the eyes were left to set for 24 hours before the orange nose was done. After the nose was added I put the cookies in a dehydrator for 15-20 minutes and then left them out to set again. The picture you see is the cookie two days after the nose was added. I'm so embarrassed with these. All the icing was the same consistency; I always add white food coloring to my base icing before anything else; I felt like I gave them ample time to set and dry AND used a dehydrator! What else can I do to prevent this???
