I am needing Edible Markers for a cake I have due later this month. Could someone please tell me a reputable web site I can purchase them from? Thanks.

michaels, hobby lobby and a.c. moore all carry the Wilton brand of edible markers -- and you can use a % off coupon w/ them too.

Wait wait I grew up with an older brother and if we use 'edible markers' then he would ask why sell cake just let them eat the marker. Did you all not have a brother? So it's an edible ink marker.

Another marker type observation equally non-essential and even worse in the silliness factor but...

So when a clerk uses a marker on my twenty dollar bill, I say, "Oh is that a counterfeit pen?" They say yes. I say, "Maybe you should get a real one."

Well I have to explain it sometimes so I guess they din have an older brother huh?

The Americolor pens are tons better than the Wilton ones, IMHO...I got mine from Oasis supply locally, but you should be able to order online too.

If you don't live near any stores that carry them and must order online, then I recommend www.intotheoven.com. I found they had the best price and shipping combined. With fuel prices out of control, FedEx and UPS shipping rates are crazy, especially if the site charges you based on your order total instead of the actual weight of the package. Most sites only ship FedEx or UPS and your shipping costs can be more than your order if you just need one or two things.

Into The Oven is one of the few that I found that ship Priority Mail for just $6.80. I ordered the Americolor Gourmet Writers (set of 10) for $11.99 and a pack of two Black Gourmet Writers for $3.89. I also purchased two decorator tips for $1.99 each.

I really felt it was a great value for the money.

Well, I called around today, and my local Michael's or Hobby Lobby doesn't sell them and won't order them. So, thanks for this info, Kim. I just placed an online order with intotheoven and it is a great site with better shipping fees than most sites.
Thanks again. icon_biggrin.gif
