You probably already figured this one out. Here is a link where I found embroidery font. You can use this for monograms and you dont have to pay for the font!! Just click on the font you like, click :save picture as: and save to your documents. Print it off. center the letter you like in the middle of a copier and enlarge to the size you want. Trace it onto parchment paper and pipe royal icing over the letter and let sit. VOILA!! you have a monogram!! I am using this for a topper and I just stick stiff wire or something in the bottom of monogram after piping so it will set into the icing and can be inserted in the cake.

Thank you for sharing. I don't quite understand how you can just get one letter enlarged if they all share the same sheet. I'm someone who can't see the forest for the trees!!! icon_redface.gif

FYI, most of those fonts are available for free on other sites with different names. Like that Quilian font is "Beautiful" on another site. I have it, not sure where it came from however.

I use www.fontfreak.com for fonts that didn't come in MS Word.
