Thanks so much for the info and the websites. I think all newbies like me are scared of printing on cakes.

Karolyn....another question, what size do you make your font? I am having trouble figuring out which one would look best. I don't wan the name to be over powering, but I don't want this little name that looks like an after thought. I'm sure its something I'll need to play with. But I am putting this on a 10" Round that is 4" high icon_smile.gif

On a 4" cake, (on the side) I usually do 100 or 150 for the size.
When you print preview in Word, you can see on the left and the top the ruler, it shows you how tall the font is.
I have printed it out before and it was too big so I adjusted it.

If you use acetate instead of wax paper & print backwards you can just do it like an fbct - it will come off that way!

I LOVE the idea of using the caulking to make different designs to do impressions!!!!! I am SO going to use that - thanks!!!

Renaejrk, where do you get the acetate?

I have gotten mine at Hobby Lobby, and even Wal-Mart! It's basically transparency paper - it's not as flimsy as wax paper or parchment and completely clear too. You could probably find it online.

Thank you for the tip! By the time I'm writing on a cake, I'm usually pretty tired. Sometimes I am extra tired and the writing takes away from my cake. I'll definitely try this!
