Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing - life saver I was sceptical after reading other reviews, however I found this pen amazing! I used it to write tiny symbols on the keyboard of a computer cake and they came out brilliantly; it was just like using a pen. The thin side didn't really work but the thick side made up for that! Additionally, it wipes off easily if you make a mistake - though it's so easy to use you probably won't have to do that. Will definitely buy again - worth the price

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Give it a good shake! I couldn't get this to work the first time I used it. The ink was hardly coming out and I ruined the piece of fondant I was trying to write on. Thought I'd give it another go about a week later and after a very severe shaking before use it came out fine. I'm reluctant to try the other colours incase I have the same problem, and they're not terribly cheap for what they are either. don't press down hard either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finishing touch pen Used this for the lettering on fondant on my sons birthday cake (minecraft lettering) perfect for the task and made it complete. Large and fine tips were helpful. Only issue is had to dot at times rather than drag/draw as soft fondant dinted if I pressed too hard. Although I'm a novice so probably user error more than product. Would work best on harder surfaces but colouring still came out well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can be used for many things I only gave it 4 stars because when I got it home the lid on the end I needed just wouldn’t come off tried everything pliers etc wouldn’t budge so couldn’t use it to finish cake and didn’t have time to go change it till next day but staff was amazing swapped it and checked the new one before I left shop even they couldn’t get lid off either otherwise new one is really good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal for small details I used this pen to write out Happy Birthday in musical notes on a piece of fondant made to look like a sheet of paper.. worked really well and had the desired effect. Can smudge so really need to take your time with it. Safe to say my Nan was super happy with the cake we created and this product helped get the end product I had in mind!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fiddly and not very pigmented I was expecting a brush pen-like experience and was disappointed to find I needed to apply pressure in order for the ink to transfer to the cake. The pressure made the marzipan stick to the pen, which, in turn, made it harder to get the ink where I wanted it. Perhaps it would dare better on icing, but I wouldn't use it on marzipan again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I bought this edible pen at short notice. I was happy with it for what I paid. As I had read previous reviews about it, I knew only to use it on dry fondant icing. It fulfilled the purpose I needed it to. While it wasn't strong black as I hoped it would be, it still gave a lovely effect and was clear what I have written on the fondant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work so well on delicate items I bought this pen for a Halloween baking project. My daughter wanted to make meringue ghosts and use the icing pen to draw on the faces. Unfortunately the pen scratched at the meringue and therefore did not work for that. I am sure however that it would be fine on icing although I have yet to try that, but will be in the near future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not recommend I thought this would be a dream come true but in reality it dents the fondant icing creating a groove with the tip, if you try to do it lighter then nothing comes out. This is double ended so you get a small sharp end and then the other end is like a felt tip pen. Ended up using black food colouring gel and a fine paintbrush instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I was a bit worried about buying this pen because of a previous review but it worked well straight out of the pack. I bought it to write a birthday message on the blank white iced plaque that Hobbycraft also supply. The result was what I'd hoped for. I used the broad nib for my message but the fine nib also worked well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for decorating I used this pen to add decoration to biscuits covered with royal icing. It works well but you have to be quite light-handed. I did notice a bit of smudging after a day or so, but that was possibly due to the heat rather than the pen itself. I'm not sure how well it would work on other surfaces but it was fun to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy cake-decorating item! Easy to use, with the bonus option of two nib thicknesses to choose from - one at either end of the pen. Nice black outline for fine detailing, used in my house by adults and children to create different effects. The product itself is a 5* item, but I think it is slightly over-priced hence a 4* review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful pen: Don't bother buying! I have done lots of cake and biscuit decorating in the past and this pen was the worst: It barely wrote on the biscuits I created and I landed up almost scrapping marks into the biscuit using it and painting it in with food dye instead. Worst food colouring pen I've ever used and wouldn't buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy This made life so much easier. Ready to use and available in a variety of colours. Multipack available also on different colours which works out cheaper than buying individual. The two different sized nibs is ideal to use for different styles of decoration. A must have for any cake decorators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for detailed work Had a cake to make which included a spiderman head and part of his body. Got me thinking in the planning stage on how do I do the web details on his suit but found this while in a store and brilliant, just the thing for the job and made it so much easier for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pens dry out too fast I purchased the black and red pens in order to do some fine details on a cake ordered from me, the first small detail came out lovely but then the pens dried and worked only when dabbed several times on the same bit which ruined the look of the cake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ok, not great The thicker end of this pen (like a felt tip) was ok so long as you were gentle on the icing. The thinner end (like a fine liner) I found pretty much pointless. It didn't even make a mark on the icing. Which was a shame as I love to add fine details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product does "what it says on the tin!" Having my own cake business it was great to be able to purchase the edible pen at last minute when I didn't realise I had used the one I had. Having two different nib size in one pen was very helpful. I would purchase one again. Thankyou Hobby craft

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is average This Pen didn’t make it a great success for writing on icing. It melted the icing and you really need to press or write several times to make it visible. The thin part is cutting down through the icing living a scratch rather than a painted line

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work Tried to use this pen yesterday on some hardened candy melts on a cake pop and it didn't work. I don't know if it the pen was partially dried out. It was new out of the package but it didn't have ink flowing out. Didn't work on paper either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful for cake decoration Impressed with the choice in store. Chose this one and not disappointed so far. Only 4 stars as I've only used it once and it was excellent, just don't know how it will perform now it's been opened. Easy to use for outlining shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but I need more practice Great product and was just what I needed. However I need more practice because it dragged a bit on the icing. I think the icing needs to be completely dry and firm before attempting to write. Will definitely give it a go again

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to use but nice idea Bought this to colour in eyes. The nib is quite sharp so pushes in to the icing too easily. Better to make sure the icing is rock hard first. Even then, use a light touch. I found it easier to use in gently dabbing motion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Thought it would be great for a child to write a message on icing after baking a cake for their mummy, but it dried after two words and wouldn't work again. It was the same with both sides. Complete waste of money!
