This couple wants their square 3 tier off-white wedding cake with the names Michelle & David in black, going from one tier to another , sort of diagonally. I try to attached a picture of the photo of the cake they sent me but was unable.

Any one knows how to do this lettering on a fondant cake? Any ideas how I could do this?

Thanks in advance for your response,

I think I would cut the letters from gumpaste then you can arrange them on the cake like you want and they can be easily removed for cutting.

like this?

My mum ( made it and I'm pretty sure she either painted it on with a fine brush or with an edible pen.

ditto on the writing with an edible pen.

Alternatively you can cut very large letters from fondant and use it to spell the names. You would probably need to handcut them, to get them large enough

Can you upload the pic to a photo-sharing site like Photobucket?

You can impress the nice type on your fondant cake using this technique, and then going on top of them with royal icing or edible paint.

Thank you all!

I am going to go with Impressing the names with royal icing as per Imagenthtnj tip, and them going over with a very fine brush in black (gel).

Thank you all for your tips,
