Lot of writing on the cake?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Help. I need to write on the sides of the cake. Almost a short story, what shall I use to write. Marker, buttercream, sugar sheet and then transfer it to the cake?

I wrote a love letter of sorts on a cake last year for V-day. I traced it out freehand on the fondant covered tiers, and went back over it with a paintbrush and black gel color.

I'm on my phone or else I'd link you to it. You can find it on my FB page or website.

If you're good at writing/piping, my vote is buttercream.  It's quick and easy.

HOW TO:
Make tip #127D (giant rose tip) Ruffle cake,
Write with icing,
Make buttercream roses on a stick:

I have tried the buttercream before, thats a very good option, but the thing is it is lot of writing . may be 10 -12 lines all around a 10" circle cake. so looking for simple option.

Gosh, that IS a lot of writing...  would printing it off on an edible sheet be an option for you?

I would use an edible marker, i wrote the elvish script around the sides of the lord of the rings cake  i posted using this method, just make sure the fondant is dry first.
