Hello everyone!

I need to make a chalkboard cake and the writings need to be placed on the black fondant on the cake.

Just wondering if candy chalk would give the same effect as chalk, or what else I can use? I can't find a tutorial or instructions on how to make one at all!

Please help!

 

Thanks

I've used white lustre dust mixed with vodka and painted on for chalk writing.

AThere was a YouTube video where someone used a white candy melt...try searching for it. But the suggestion above is a great one, that's how I would probably do it

Perhaps this is of some use

 

 

 

Or this 

 

To make the candy chalk you will need: white chocolate candy melts, a rolling pin, straws, kitchen skewers, a pastry brush, and 1/2 to 1 cup of granulated sugar (can be re-used later).

 

 

How to make candy chalk

Melt about 6-8 ounces of candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, following instructions on package. Allow to cool a few minutes before scooping into a ziplock bag and sealing.

Place 3-4 straws in a tall glass filled halfway with regular sugar (to keep straws upright). Snip off one corner of the ziplock bag containing melted chocolate and slowly squeeze and fill straws with the chocolate.

Place glass in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to allow chocolate to harden. Remove from freezer. Take a skewer and insert into one end of the straw. Gently push the chocolate out. You now have “chalk” that is not only edible but can be used to write on your chalkboard cake. It is easier to write with smaller pieces of chalk so feel free to break them up before using.

 

To create the effect of a chalkboard being used over the years, take a pastry brush and dip lightly into powdered sugar. Gently brush on the surface of the fondant and sweep back and forth until you achieve desired effect.
