you can dilute it with a little water.. and pipe roses with it.. i have done this using the # 124-127 rose petal tip... so, i would think, you could add some water and write with it.. haven,t written with it.. but you could try it.. hth

Hmmm. You can do it with a clay gun. Not sure about the bag as I think it would harden too quickly.

My instructor showed us a cake she had just done by piping fondant and it worked out well. She then showed us how she did it.

Basically kneaded water into the fondant (fondex??) until it was of a consistancy that she thought was thin enough. It looked like slightly thick bc. Then put it into a plastic piping bag with a regular tip. Seemed to work fairly well and I don't recall her greasing the bag.

She had used it to make scroll work on a alternitive wedding cake (they had a jack-o-lantern bride and groom topper...)

awesome thank you for all your help. I think I will give it a try. I am making valentines cookies for my kids classes and writing their names on the cookies and I really didn't want to make RI and I was going to use red candy melts but the stores were sold out and I need to do them tonight after I get off work at midnight (another reason I didn't want to do RI is because it takes a while to dry) soooo this sounds like the best option, hopefully it will turn out well.
