I used the gel icing and made faces on the cake pops... It worked out well but..................... it is still sticky... I wanted to put in them in individual bags...ugh.. any suggestions.... maybe edible markers would work???thanks..

Edible markers would work, or royal icing, or melted chocolate... depending on the look you wanted. Good luck!

Edible makers, fondant cut outs or coating chocolate.

My expierence with edible markers has always been that they don't make a very dark mark. I just drew some eyebrows on a fondant mummy head and it really did not come out black...kinda dark greyish. I am making pumpkin cakepops also and I am going to use black Wilton candy melts in a pastry bag with a very small round tip.

Yesterday I used black wilton candy melts and did not feel like it was a true black. It looked dark grey. You'll have to let me know what you think when you melt yours. I'm thinking I may get Merkens black next time.

You have to go over it a couple of times. I have used the Americolor black food pens and they are black black, but sometimes you have to shake the color into the tip of the pen.
