How Can You Write Words On A Cake?

Piping Lettering on Cakes

1. Gather Your Supplies

You will need a freshly baked and cooled cake [1], frosting for your base, coloured frosting for your words, and a few piping bags. 

“My policy on cake is pro having it and pro eating it.” 

– Boris Johnson, Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom

The coloured frosting should be a contrasting colour to the base frosting to ensure the words are visible.

2. Prepare Your Piping Bag

Prepare a piping bag for writing by inserting a small, round tip (sizes 1, 2, or 3 are recommended). Fill the bag with the coloured frosting you have chosen for the writing.

3. Practice Writing

If you need more confidence with your piping skills, practice writing words on parchment paper [2] first. 

It will allow you to feel how much power to put on and how quickly to move your hand.

4. Mark Your Message

You can use a toothpick to lightly sketch out your message on the cake if you’re worried about making a mistake. 

This gives you a guideline to follow, and any errors can be smoothed out with your base frosting.

5. Start Writing

Beginning at the top, move your way down from left to right. This way, you won’t accidentally smudge your work. 

“As she prepares to say ‘I do,’ let this cake be a reminder of the love and support she has on her bridal journey.”

If you’re right-handed, cutting the cake can be easier if you begin on the right and move to the left.

6. Final Touches

Once you’ve finished writing, you can add decorations like borders, flowers, or other designs. But how far in advance should you order a wedding cake?

What Should You Avoid Doing At The Bridal Shower?

  • Bringing Uninvited Guests: Unless specified, it’s important to avoid bringing extra guests such as children or partners. Bridal showers are typically intimate affairs, and the hostess may have planned for a specific number of attendees.
  • Not Participating in Games or Activities: Even if they’re not your favourite, joining in games and activities helps make the event enjoyable for the bride. Your participation is a part of the overall gift of the day.
  • Using Your Phone Excessively: Being on your phone during the event is disrespectful. It’s best to keep your phone silent and engage in the festivities.
  • Bringing Inappropriate Gifts: Consider the bride’s preferences and the event’s theme when choosing a gift. Steer clear of gifts that might embarrass the bride or be inappropriate in front of family members.

Who should cover the cost of the bridal shower?

Generally, it is customarily expected for the bridal shower to be hosted and paid for by the bride’s maid of honor, bridesmaids, or close family members.

But when do you have a bachelorette party and bridal shower?

What’s an appropriate bridal shower gift amount?

One suggested guideline for proper bridal shower gift giving is to give a gift equal to the cost of attending the bridal shower; typically, this is around $50-$70.
