A small fluid writer is a must have tool if you want to draw on vertical surfaces with beautiful fine lines.
To draw and doodle on a covered cake or cookie effortlessly, enjoyably and successfully you need to invest in the correct tool, you could use an edible food pen but after a while you will struggle! The tool that Lindy uses is this wonderful Kemper fluid writer. A precision engineered tool that ‘holds like a brush and writes like a pen’. As the manufacturers say, ‘don’t be fooled by imitations’ this amazing tool effortlessly writes on vertical surfaces, doesn't drip and gives faultless lines.The tool is available in two sizes, this is the finer one.
How to use:
1. Using a paintbrush or eyedropper fill the cup of the fluid writer with liquid food colour.
2. Holding the tool like a paintbrush, lightly touch the tip to the sugarpaste surface where you wish to start, as soon as you make contact the liquid food colour is released, so let the tip glide over the surface to create a pattern. When you wish to stop simply remove the tip.
Note: Never press down on the tip, it needs to simply glide of the surface. If the tip does gets blocked, for example you accidentally push it into your icing, carefully push the thin metal wire, that comes with the fluid writer through the the tip to release.
We hope Lindy's examples inspire you and you have as much fun doodling on your cakes with your fluid writer as she does!
