Hello,

I have read many, many, many of your posts and have learned so much, and have been sad that I haven't been able to contribute...until today!

I am never happy with the way my printing looks on a cake. I figured out that I can print the wording that I want off on my computer onto a regular sheet of paper. Then, I made tiny holes in the paper with a punch pin, tracing each letter. I place the paper over the cake (in this case covered with fondant) and press gently over the letters. The holes from the pin punches transfer and make a nice outline for me to trace when I'm piping on the letters!

(I apologize if someone else has previously posted on this and I missed it, but I was so proud of myself I had to share. icon_biggrin.gif)

this is a really cool and great idea - do you a heavier weight paper or does this just work on buttercream?

you are so smart!!!

i use regular paper, but i think if the paper wasn't firm enough a person could always use a toothpick and go through the holes to transfer the words.
