Write name on birthday cake?
We recommend using a piping bag and tip to write on your cake. You can use any round tip to write your letters, though smaller tips may make it difficult to smoothly squeeze the icing out while larger tips can lead to a messier script.
The best icing to use here is gels, buttercream or melted chocolate.
Pro Tip: To prevent wasting the frosting, try practicing your lettering by filling a piping bag with mayonnaise or mustard.
