AI made gumpaste crowns for my niece's birthday cake. I want to add her name and a 1 on them. Can I pipe it in buttercream? I don't have any royal icing or letter or number cutters to use with more gumpaste. I do have some white chocolate, but I am not the steadiest piper.

AButtercream is fine. It just wont work if she wants to keep the whole thing as a keepsake.

AThank you so much! I wasn't sure if she would want to keep it, so I used the white chocolate. It's not perfect, but it made them happy [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3250149/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
