I really need help here! What is the easiest, neatest and straightest way to write on cakes. I just tried rolling out fondant and going over a font on wax paper. Very time consuming and not crazy about this (not neat enough). I wound up piping buttercream but my hand shakes when I'm trying to be perfect and I don't always space it out correctly.
(I do have the wilton alphabet cutters, but they were not the correct font)
Sadly, it's practice practice practice! At least when it comes to piping. I usually write it out to help me get the spacing. And will sometimes mark start and end points too.
If u have an extruder, u can make a thin rope, and use that to shape the letters - if u were hand rolling ur fondant that might work better.
U can buy other fonts, but then u would still b limited to the set u get.
I'm horrible at this too. But two important tips: use the right consistency icing and put only a small amount of icing in your bag. If you're using a full bag, it is definitely harder on your hand.
