Tips On How To Write On Birthday Cakes
When you were a child learning to write your ABCs, we all know the biggest struggle was writing on the dotted dots. Ironically, it is the same with birthday cake writing. If you have ever seen an individual writing on a birthday cake, you have probably noticed that they do it with precision and finesse so as not to make a mistake. If you happen to be one of the individuals who love baking birthday cakes, the last thing you want to do is ruin it with the writing.
To become a skilled birthday cake writer, you must imitate the lessons you learned when you were learning to write your ABCs. Trace the letters repeatedly with a full piping bag on parchment paper taped on various alphabet primers. Doing so will help you measure the pressure, angle, and flow required for fully formed letters.
In this article, we’ll discuss tips to help you improve your birthday cake writing, but first, let us provide you with a small list of tools and resources you will need.
– Piping bag and tips
– Small spatula
– Medium for writing (icing, buttercream, chocolate, etc.)
– parchment paper
To write on birthday cakes with precision, follow these tips.
1. Fine Tip For The Fitted Piping Bag
Fit your piping bag with a fine tip and proceed to fill it with your medium of choice. Any size or type of piping bag will work, but using smaller piping bags allow for a much better grip giving you more control with writing on birthday cakes.
2. Use Toothpicks To Mark Each Word
With a toothpick, you can mark the beginning and end of each word in a straight line. By marking each end, it will be easier to keep focused when starting the pipe.
3. Trace The Letters
Use a toothpick to trace letters into the birthday cake. This will make it easier to follow when applying your medium.
4. Melted Chocolate Is An Easy-Medium
Assuming that your cone is ready, you will need to choose a medium. Most novice birthday cake writers prefer melted chocolate because it is typically readily available and is not sticky by nature, allowing it to flow easier in the direction needed.
5. Practice On A Plate First
It is always best to practice writing a few letters or a phrase on a clean surface. By doing so, you will get a feel for how much pressure you need while writing and how your medium flows.
If you’ve followed these tips, you should be well on your way to writing on birthday cakes with ease, style, precision, and finesse. Luckily, when it comes to the moment, a knife will cut right through your message, and everyone will get a tasty piece of your perfectly handwritten work; and if you’re still struggling, you can always order online or at your local bakery.
