I have to make ladybugs for a cake that I have coming up. I found the cutest ladybug mold and plan to press in red fondant to get the shape. What I'm wondering is if I used the edible markers to color in the black portion of the ladybugs, will that work and will it dry to the touch? I have never used these markers before. If not, any suggestions on another way to color that portion in?? Thanks for the help!!

The Wilton Edible foodmarkers do dry. Allow your fondant to dry first before writing on the ladybugs.

I've only seen them sold in a pack of 5...red, yellow, green, blue and black. They're not expensive at all. Especially if you use a Michael's coupon. FYI-you can use Michael's coupons @ JoAnn's Fabrics

Just FYI... I just bought the primary colored set: red, green, blue, yellow, and black at JoAnn's, they are $7.99. They also have a neon set with the pink, purple, black, and two other colors that I can't think of right now.
