I am getting ready to place my first order at Country kitchen SA today and want to order food writers for my cookies, but don't know which ones are best.

They have Wilton Foodwriters, Foodoodler and Americolor Gourmet Writers...which do you use or recommend?

i agree. and fine tips too, less like a fat brush, more like a pen.

For fine lines, I love #PLP-F101110 (Food Doodler) and for medium lines, I like #34-6010. !

Yes, the Americolor ones are very fine tipped if you like that. I have also used the Foodoodlers which don't have such a fine tip. I actually find them easier for me to write with.

If you haven't ever used them before, be sure and let your fondant sit for a while before you try writing on it. If you don't wait, it can sometimes be too soft, and your tip will sink in and make a little ink spot.

There are like 10 for $15.50 I think. I have a catalog of theirs and it calls them by name...I entered the item number to be sure it was the same thing.

The item number is 34-6010, or there have a set of 2 black markers that is $4.10 and their number is 34-6015

I know, strange, huh? Seems like they would be all over "Americolor", as popular as it is!

Glad I could help!

Oh, yes, do the Americolor ones! I messed up and bought the Wilton ones first and hated them. Their color was not bold and I was disappointed. Since, I have gotten the Americolor ones and love them!

I like the Foodoodler Fine tips as the black is the best one when I tested the Americolor, the Wilton and Foodoodler. But that is just what I thought. icon_rolleyes.gif

Ok could someone please help me? I bought the Americolor markers, baked the cookies and then we used the Wilton icing in the bottles. Everything look great, until we tried to write on it and the markers just kept going down in the icing. It felt like it was set up enough. Does this icing not work for the markers?

Thanks,
Cheryl
