Has anyone ever used food edible markers on cookies iced with royal icing? Just wondering if they work?

I can NEVER get them to write as smoothly as they're supposed to. It makes me a little crazy. I prefer to use paint (petal/luster dust with vodka)

I have used edible markers on my RI. You have to make sure your RI is really dry before you use them, and use a light touch. They work great!

Do you use Wilton brand?

I've used 2 diff. brands before. They're not great but okay. Use light swift strokes and fill in rather than draw/write. I prefer to use vanilla extract w/food coloring/luster dust.

I've done it! As someone said, you have to make sure that icing is really dry first, but I didn't have a problem. I've used Wilton and also KopyKake. Sometimes I push really hard on them at an angle, on a piece of paper to kind of "break" them so that they're softer, but I'm not really recommending that - I've ruined them that way sometimes. I wish they were more like a thin paintbrush. I've even used my KopyKake ones to write notes on my daughter's sandwiches - all the kids think that's cool!

P.S. You can use vodka instead vanilla

What kind of food coloring do you use paste, liquid or powder?
