Can you used food writers to decorate fondant or is it just best for RI?

I've used food writers on fondant with no problems, but nothing too extensive. Mostly for eyes or small accents that are troublesome w/ fondant.

I don't think it'd be a problem.

You can use food writers - but in my experience, they "bleed" a little. The fondant writers work a little better.

I'm stumped, too.

Has anyone seen / used these dual tip pens from Kopykake? Seems like a great idea.

Gosh that is a great deal. I have purchased two different types of pens and don't like either one and there is only 5 colors and they were almost the same price. Thanks for the tip!

I've used the americolor ones on fondant and they work, just not that well. The color isn't/wasn't dark enough for me. I had to dip them in more color to get the look I was going for. I didnt know kopykake made them too...may just have to try them out!!!

Well I used the color a cookie edible ink markers that come with those cookie kits with 9 cookies. The kits were from Christmas. they were 10.00 but I got them for 2.00 when Michaels put them on clearance. The markers worked so well. the colors did not bleed and they were very bright and colorful.
