I tried to look at your link but the website said it was temporarily unavailable. I'll try again later...

I looked at it and it seems pretty'll get a lot more versatility out of a piping bag, coupler and a few tips than you would with that. The photo they're showing isn't even of the pen actually being used...those bees are fondant instead icon_biggrin.gif

I thought they were kitchen magnets!

Ateco sells a cake deco syringe that you can get a lot more use out of than this.

I just got this over the weekend. I really struggle with writing on my cakes with my piping bag. While I'll continue to practice, I figured in the meantime I could use this "pen". I only use it for writing though, and I do really like it.

Wait - save your money! thumbsdown.gif IMHO. I thought I struck gold when I found this little gem and couldn't wait to use it..... well when I tried it with Royal Icing, it was nothing but a mess! That little curved contour of the clear part is enough to allow the icing to backflow over the plunger and run all over! It was a horrible mess. I originally thought I wanted to purchase several, and soon found out that one was a waste of money.

I also bought it thinking that this is the answer i need to writing on my cakes. I don't like it. It is awkward and messy.
