How can I write on a cake?

by Aimee Larkin

I'm fairly new at this, but I've decided to make a cake for a birthday coming up. I know how to make the cake, but I'm not sure at all about icing, or how to write on the cake with icing, like saying ''happy birthday'' or whatever. I'm clueless. help please!!

Iuse small alphbet cutter you can buy them online and they come in plastic strips, use gum or petal paste in your chosen colour, you cut each letter out you want ant just stick them on with a little water or cake glue easy .

Here's my email if you would like me to send you the recipe I use.

Before I got comfortable writing with icing, I used the pre-made, store bought candy letters.
