AI usually just use my letter cutters but they don't look as thin or as fancy I don't know what to pipe it with royal icing? Guess ill have to practice a bunch cause I've never piped letters eeeekkk

AI had to pipe a phrase in Russian using the Cyrillic alphabet and I was terrified I would write something offensive! So I had the client send the text in a word document and I printed it out the size I needed it. Then I used a scribe (or pin would work) to prick through the text on to the covered board. Then it was simple to just overpipe the message. And apparently the Russian family thought that I was fluent in Russian because it was perfect!

Anyway, it's a low stress way to do this, just find a font you're happy with. Good luck!

AI think that's made with Tappits.

If you look at the third photo, it looks piped: http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/aryans-first-birthday-cake-2013-03-03.htm

Tappits and then piped with dots and stripes?
