I have a set of smaller stencils with cursive writing that says Happy Birthday, Congratulations...etc. I really like how they look, but on a larger cake, they get lost. Is there somewhere that I can buy a larger set like that? They are really helpful to me because my freehand isn't really that great (I'm left handed). I know practice makes perfect, but in the mean time I need to cheat a little.
I have a lot of trouble writing on cakes too - for some reason, I thought I'd be good at it. Not sure why I'm not but I'm left-handed too. Where did you get the stencils you have? I'd like to try them.
I got them at Michael's Arts and Craft Store. They have a big Wilton Collection and I love it! If you can't find them, let me know and I will get in touch with you, get them for you and ship them to you. They are very inexpensive...about $ 6.00 - give or take a dollar.
culinarystencils.com has a very wide selection of stencils for cake and cookie decorating.
Are those the one's you use with sugar crystals or confectioner's sugar? Can you trace it with buttercream icing?
What about using royal or chocolate for writing? You can print out what you want to put on the cake from your computer and cover the paper with wax paper and use that to make your letters. You can even do a royal icing placque.
Just some ideas until you get the practicing in and get your handwriting down.
That's an awesome website...all my dollars are going to go to culinarystencils this week!
Thanks for sharing the link!
I imprint it and then write with buttercream icing
