I was wondering what most of you use to write on Fondant or Gum Paste, I tried those edible pens, but they do not seem to work well?! I tried them on Gum paste; do you have to leave the Gum Paste to dry before decorating it?? This is the first time I have ever worked with either, so I am still learning any advice about either of them would be wonderful! Thank you!
Another question, I have saw a lot of places that says you can flavor them, should I flavor them? or... what?!
Maybe if I tell you what I am trying to make it will help. I am making a poker themed cake and I want the cards and the chips edible, once again should I use Fondant or Gum paste??!
I used Wilton Icing Writers on this cake...
You can find them on the Wilton website.
I used fondant for the cards on my poker table cake posted in my pics. For the lettering, spades, hearts, etc. I used the Wilton food coloring markers in the fine tip done in freehand. on the Queen's card I used an edible image to get all the detailing exact. It worked perfectly.
Oh, and for the chips I used molded Wilton's disks. Very easy to make!
Thank you for this. I tried using those markers and they just weren't working for me, but I was using Gum Paste, could that be why? I am going to attempt to make some fondant today and try it out. I already have the Gum Paste Made, rolled and cut out, but wasn't sure about it. and I will check out what you said about the chips! Thank you and if you all have any more advice PLEASE let me in on it! This cake is going out this weekend, it's for family so that is a good thing! Good Practice!
