I purchased American Food Writer Pens, but I'm having trouble using them.
Even though I try to use the darker colors, even on light fondant, it doesn't show up. I've tried on soft fondant, hardened fondant, it doesn't matter. I must be using them wrong.
Your signature line just made me laugh out loud!
If you're writing on a piece of fondant that will not be eaten, you can use regular Crayola markers. They're non-toxic and cheap
Why, thank you, ma'am!
I figure, you might as well make 'em laugh, you know?
Thanks for the crayon tip, I'll be using them from now on!
Keep on cakin'!!
Texas-rose...I would have never thought of that! Thank you so much!!
It wasn't me to start with...I think Kakeladi was who told me about it. I have tried it with the fine-point crayola markers and it works well...practice on a spare piece first because fondant is wiggly when you try to write on it.
Thanks for passing on the crayola marker tip - it would have saved me a lot of time last night as I was writing happy birthday on a plaque - I had to keep going over it!!!!!! I definitely will pass this tip on to others as you did for us!
How can you be absolutely sure that your fondant is not going to be eaten? I'd be very cautious.
I would imagine you can just tell the customer and they would just take it off before they serve it.
As the mother of a child who licks her markers when she's thinking really hard, I can tell you that Crayola is good at making them non-toxic
There are some things that just are not in a million years going to be eaten anyhow...gumpaste shoe, anything on wires, etc...
my sister is in your city for a mini vacation. how's the weather over there??
Hoping she gets to enjoy herself and not burn to a crisp! lol
Well, it's only 91 right now, not as hot as it's been lately. I hope your sister enjoys her vacation I wish I could get out of San Antonio, so it seems weird to me that people actually come here for fun, but I know lots of them do.
