Isn’t it sooo PRETTY?!

This cake is GREAT for Valentine’s day or Anniversaries or even Mother’s day.

I kept the colors very SOFT and CLEAN but you can use brighter colors, if that’s what you like.

You can even try writing DIFFERENT messages.

Here are few IMPORTANT things you should remember when you are using edible markers to write or draw on a cake:

  • Make sure you are sitting down and your cake is at EYE-LEVEL.
  • Allow your fondant covered cake to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour and then write on it. If you don’t do this, the tip of your marker will make DENTS on your fondant.
  • PRACTICE writing on scrap pieces of fondant (just to get the hang of it!) before you start writing on the actual cake.
  • Just take a deep breath and relax before you start off!

  1. Such a cute idea. I made my first fondant covered cake to test on my family and used this idea on part of the cake so it wasn’t blank (except I made the mistake of writing the O’s in Love so I had to put the hearts on top). Everyone thought it was very pretty. Thanks!

  2. Thank you! !! I’m going to try this instead of icing writing. .with lots of practice of course
