When I made the #3 (in my pics). I used a printout of a font I liked in Word or Powerpoint.

After I baked the cake I layed the template on the cake and cut it out. It worked like a charm and I ended up with the font that I wanted.

If you decide to do it that way and have any questions let me know.

drangonflydreams, many thanks for the links.

lavida, thanks for the tip. sorry, maybe i should have been more clear on what i wanted to do. i intend to bake a big rectangle cake and do the No. 6 imprint (as the racetrack) on the cake. let's say i do as you have mentioned, after i've cutout the No. 6 from the computer, how do i get the 6 on the cake. so sorry if this is confusing.

I layed the printout directly on the retangular cake, held it down with one hand and carved around it with the other.
