I was trying to google for this answer and couldn't find it and ended up on this forum. Please excuse what is probably a totally lame question.
I made cupcakes last night.
I thought I let them cool enough before I frosted them. Just store bought cake and frosting. I added 3 drops of red food coloring to the white frosting to make pink (Breast Cancer Fundraiser).
They all looked great! Then when I got up this morning only SOME of them were a mess! Most of them looked fine...although there were a little too "glossy"....but a few of them were awful. The frosting had just slid right off and made a big mess. They were not warm when I frosted them! Could it have been the few drops of food coloring?!
I plan on using cupcakes as a fundraiser at work every week, so hopefully I can find an answer and it won't happen again! Thanks for all your help!
