Hi! I do a lot of royal icing (RI) transfers and then put them on a wet flooding icing. I let the RI transfers dry completely. I have been having problems when I'm doing a lighter color on a darker flood icing. It will "bleed" through. I've tried to wait a few minutes after applying the wet icing to let them set a bit, but not working. I even had a problem with this one attached and it was a darker transfer on a light orange wet. Over the day, the orange started bleeding through the blue as you can see. I'm wondering if I should just put it on using the dry method instead when doing lighter colors on darker backgrounds. Any suggestions would be great!
Hi, Deena, Congrats on making your first post. I look forward to many more to come!
I'd suggest using as thick an icing as possible for the base; the thicker it is, the faster it will dry, leading to less bleeding. Or, do a completely dry-on-dry application if that does not work.
