Hi, can you used wilton icing tubes for writing on a cake. Is it the right consistency for writing or is this meant to pipe borders?

Hi Kelly! I try to always have a tube of black and a tube of red on hand for writing just b/c it's easier than trying to mix a little of those colors. I've done it straight out of the tube but you need to warm up the tube first. I just roll it in my hands for a few minutes. Gets it nice and warm and the flow is much nicer. I've also squeezed a little in a bowl and added some water to thin it down for writing. Depends on how much time you have I guess. Hope this helps. icon_lol.gif

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the icing tubes for writing! Just pop a tip on with a coupler and write away! I also like to use the black tube with a number 2 tip for outlining buttercream transfers... I feel like I have much more control with the tube than a piping bag.

thanks! I think I will try warming it up in my hands......I really hope that it works. I am terrible at writing, even bought a press stencil that I will try.
