My writing is all messed up and when I take off the icing to start my writing over, it looks even worse. How do I correct this??

Can you make a fondant plaque and stick it on top? You could paint on the words with food coloring.

Great idea! I always mess up on freehand writing, I think I need to invest in tappits or stencils. Which are the best to use?
Thanks!

I always use tappits. I have never tried stencils.

If you mean the icing on the cake looks worse after you scrape off the writing, you could try freezing the cake for a bit first to make it easier to remove the lettering. Best of luck... keep practicing!

I like to use a larger cake board and write around the cake. When I mess up I can just wipe off and try again!

I just bought tappits and I love those too!

If you're using a crusting buttercream to write, then wait a few minutes for it to crust, and you should be able to lift it up and off using a toothpick.

Or, I also like to write around the cake board when I use freezer paper. All mistakes wipe right off.
