I was thinking edible images also. But what you could do is print off the text you want in the font you want on regular paper, then trace it with a tool on top of the fondant and that will leave a faint impression or guide to what you want. Then write over it in icing, edible marker, or 'paint'. I have done that and it works very well.
I did something kind of similar. I used rice paper and put lined paper underneath (so my writing would be straight) and then used an edible marker to write the words I needed.
An edible image would give you a nicer look, but if you're in a pinch this works.
You could always print the words for you to "trace" if you needed to as well, I can write decently in calligraphy so I just winged it like I always do! lol
Your writing is beautiful! great job! I could never do that.
If I were going to do the cake mentioned above Id just use an edible image. Make it easy on myself. No stress.
Tina, what a fabulous idea! Thank you so much for being so sharing in ideas.
Edible image printed on rice paoer worked great for me.
Thanks so much for the replies!!!
KHalstead your writing is BEAUTIFUL!!! Wish I could write half as well as that
Ok this might sound silly but can someone give me some info on how to do these ediable images?? I'm fairly new to all this cake decorating and have only taught myself as there are no course around here at all.
you need a printer, either brand new or one that's never been used with regular ink, then you need to equip it with edible ink and get "frosting sheets" to print the image onto.
OR you can print out a photo of the letters you'd like and find a grocery store or party store that has an edible image printer and have them print it for you!
