You can see all the materials you need at a glance in our photo. For our design, we used edding 4085 chalk markers by Securit in silver and gold.
Before you start, activate the edding chalk marker as follows: shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then remove the cap, place the nib on a piece of absorbent paper and pump it up and down gently a few times until ink appears in the nib. Now you’re ready to get drawing. (After use, always replace the cap securely and store the marker horizontally.)
Once you’ve primed your marker, use it to write the names of the cakes or the main ingredients on the cake toppers, so that every guest immediately knows what to look forward to.
Alternatively, a nice quote or a suitable sentiment written in decorative lettering can look great (we used white for ours). If your motif doesn’t work out how you want first time, or if you make a mistake, simply wipe it off with a damp cloth and make your corrections.
