hello,

I want to do a watch cake, and wanted to write the numbers on, so how do you write in white??

I have tried the wiltons white to make icing bright white but is spreads on the fondant, also brought the wiltons white glitter but that is to thick.

so how would you write in little white lettering or numbers??

TIA

Just paint the white icing color on with a very fine paintbrush.

You could also use white chocolate or candy melts.

How small? Could you roll a very thing snake with your fondant smoother and cut and shape little bits into the numbers?

Yes I was thinking the same.
If you need very small, I also did this before,... pressed the shape of number or letter into the fondant with a tooth pick, then piped the icing over it with a small tip, then got a spatula and took the icing off. So whatever went into the pressed number stayed in, this way the icing and the fondant was leveled. Does it make sense?

Yes very clever! Making little ditches and filling them with icing and wiping away the surface clean. Very Clever indeed!

What I would do is make up some royal icing and use a small tip to write.
