I am making my daughters 17th birthday cake today and she has decided she wants a cake in the shape of her blackberry! i think i can do the basics but not sure how to do the writing on the buttons
i would love to make this cake as good as possible but think if i ice on the letters it will look messy and the buttons are not big enough to use tappit.
i have been ill all week so this really will be a last minute push (first day out of bed in 4)

any advice???????

how about using chocolate or royal icing and piping the letters. You can print them out, put a sheet of acetate or waxed paper on top and pipe write on it. Or, you can do it directly onto your fondant. The other option is to use a food writing pen.

I don't have advice, but your question made me feel really old. I couldn't figuire out why you would put buttons on a blackberry. Took me a few minutes to realize you weren't talking about a piece of fruit lol. Good luck and hope you continue to feel better.

I second the royal icing with a very small tip.

If you have a cake supply store, you could get some rice paper and edible ink pens and write them on(get the small tip pens). Otherwise, a printed edible image could have worked. Do you have a store that prints them for a fee?

I made a blackberry out of black fondant once so it's smaller than what you're making, but I painted on the letters with a fine brush and silver luster dust.
