I want to put initials on the cake in the middle tier and was wondering if there was a stencil or something to use to make it look ok. I don't have the best handwriting and was trying to figure out how it would lookicon_smile.gif
Thanks!

would they be directly on the side of the cake? If so, I would print out the initials in the font I want and trace it in piping gel and put on the side of the cake, then trace in icing. hope this helps.

Make sure you trace the initial IN REVERSE onto parchment paper, and then transfer it to the cake by turning it over on the cake and gently brushing the back of the parchment paper with a damp paintbrush. Good luck!

I think a stencil is a great idea for a cookie. You can look at Michael's in the scrap booking section to find a font you like. You could also try a stamp with the initials on it, just use food coloring as the ink.

Are you doing this on a cake or on cookies? If you are doing it on cookies are you using royal icing or rolled buttercream?? Wilton does make a stencil set that would work good on a cookie. I am actually making the wedding cake cookies as we speak and I am going to put the brides initial on the top tier.
