I just read a thread that you do this on wax paper and transfer to the cake.  But, can you write directly on the cake?

Not done it. but if you can write with chocolate, why not with candy melts

Many, many yrs ago a great book was written by Elaine Gonzalez(sorry can't remember how to spell her name:(

It's all about using chocolate and includes a chapter on using it for writing.  If you can get your hands on a copy of it you would be one lucky person!!

All one needs to do to thicken it up *slightly* is to add a tiny drop of water to a couple of tablespoons of melted chocolate and it should 'sieze' up enough to write with.    And if I remember right, you need to keep the tip slightly warm (cover *just the tip* w/a warmed cloth when not in use).
