I need help figuring out what program on my computer to use to make a number template. My computer is new and it has additional software but I have no idea what to use. I tried experimenting but it's not working. Please let me know what you use. Thanks

Hi there. I wanted to make a number 15 out of royal icing to place on top of a cake. What I did was go to Wordperfect and type the number 15 and change the font and then enlarged the size in a copier. I took a small wire and shaped the number so that I could have a shape. I then traced the number with royal icing over and over to get a thick coating (I hope I'm not confusing you). I let it dry between coatings then let it dry overnight. You just see the number you don't see the wire because its just for support. I hope this helps you!

What are yo using the Template for - cookies, cake, icing - there are a variety of different ways you can do it.

The easiest. Type what ever you want in Word, change the font style to what you want and change the size to the size you want (you can enlarge right in Word without having to make copies.) Print it out, then you can cut it up, transfer it to wax paper or whatever.
