Default Suggestions on bleeding ribbon?

So, when I bake some of my ribbon with white dots it seems the ribbon bleeds a bit. For example, on black ribbon with white dots the dots become grey-ish. Is there any way to prevent this?

Yup - it'll do that. Lower your oven temperature and bake it for a little less time (ex. I do those and red with white dots at 225 degrees for 20 minutes).

I'll give that a try. I usually do 275 for 30mins.

I usually do 250 for 25 minutes, and my darker/brighter polka dot ribbon will have that effect unless I lower my temp to 225.

If you look at the polka dots closely, they are essentially some type of vinyl (or something lile that), so what you're doing is pretty much melting the dots, with higher oven temps, to the point that the brighter/darker ribbon color is showing through.
