Homemade colored meringue as cake decoration - will the color bleed into the icing?

I ran around the shops yesterday looking for just the right decorative sweet for cupcakes I'm baking as a gift - and couldn't find any! Long story short - if I make some small red meringues and put one on each cake will the color bleed and spoil the icing?

Details:

  1. it may if you are using an icing like a butter cream icing that is more moist than say something like royal icing
  2. It might. Meringues do start to melt in time.
