hi guys! so im made this beautiful square cake (12 inch) with beautiful piping and buttercream roses and it was gorgeous!! and then it came down to writing happy birthday lu, cindy, hannah, joe, and like a couple other names (yeah i know it was alot of names!) anyways when i came to writing i started and it looked horrible!! like it ruined the whole cake in my eyes i mean it looked like kid writing lol! and it was to big for the cake itself. so anyways why i am posting this is to ask you guys if there are any tricks to help me write better on a cake or at least get the sizing right???!!! any tricks or tools?? TIA!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Writing can definately make or break a cake. I always use my KopyKake projector....LOVE it! I make the message on my computer, print it out and pop it in. Trace the words with a pin and the writing is PERFECT EVERYTIME....and you also get perfect spacing EVERYTIME. I've had mine for years, worth every dollar spent.

OMG it was so long ago it probably was free icon_smile.gif I've had mine over 30 years. KopyKake makes at least a couple of them, get the cheaper one, it works GREAT.
