So Im making a womans torso cake (like in my pics) with a camo bikini. The gal ordering the cakes wants "Happy Birthday" on it... Im planning on doing a white banner with black writing. She also wants "chuck written on one breast and "tootie" written on the other.
The delima: I cant write to save my life! [My mother wrote out the banners on the cakes in my photos with a Wilton Food Writer] So, I bought a tube of Wilton Black Decorating Icing (add a tip and write) AND a tube of Wilton Decorating Gel. Do you think either of these will crust/ dry/ harden? I dont even know how Im going to attack this issue. Im thinking of printing it out on my computer and going from there...
YALL HELP ME PLEASE!!!!
I'll check back later, I have to get started on this cake!!!
Thank you so much inadvance!
I don't know about the Wilton icing, but I can't write either. Maybe you could print it out on a sheet of paper, cut around the writing, lay it on the cake where you want the writing, the use a toothpick to trace the letters. Lift up the paper and go back over with icing.
That's one way ^^^.
Print out the message on the computer & put it on a piece of fondant as a banner on the dress - tell customer it's not edible?
The Wilton blk icing will crust but the gel won't. And when/if you are going to use that gel.....don't cut the tip off....instead, punch a hold in it w/a hat pin or it will be so big the gel will gush out & be uncontrolable
Thanks for your suggestions. I ended up printing a banner off my computer! Check it out in my pics!
