Hi there everyone. I had a quick question. Can you write on white fondant with black buttercream without it bleeding? I will not do this until right before delivery, but wasn't sure.

when I write with buttercream on butter or fondant, whip cream. I write in the base color first then the color I want so if any oops, or mistakes you can take it off without to much trouble. I would write frist in white buttercream then in black and you should be o.k. try it on some left over foudant if you have time both ways and see. sammie

I'm terrible writing in BC, so I usually paint on fondant, do letter cut-outs or use edible markers. Considered any of these? If you make a mistake painting, you can wipe away with vanilla.

I wish I could paint or write on the fondant with an edible marker, but I am about 3 hours away from the nearest place where I could buy one and I need it for this weekend. Thank you for the ideas. I will for sure test it. Thanks again!!
