Tutorial: Wedding Monogram
I was asked about this monogram that I made for my cousin's wedding cake, so I thought I'd do a step-by-step tutorial on how to make it.
Here are the materials you'll need to make this wedding monogram:
- fondant rolling pin
- plaque cutter
- clear alcohol (i.e. lemon extract or vodka)
- gold luster dust
- pizza cutter
Roll out a piece of fondant to the desired thickness and cut out the plaque using the plaque cutter.
Make a monogram template to fit inside the plaque. You can look up font types online for ideas. I chose one that I could easily copy freehand on a piece of lined paper. You can also just print a pretty font from your computer.
Roll out a piece of fondant and cut out a rectangle. Use the pizza cutter to cut thin strips of fondant.
Drape the strips of fondant over the monogram template. Allow to dry slightly before transferring onto the plaque.
Brush the backside of the letters with clear alcohol before transferring onto the plaque.
Mix the gold luster dust and clear alcohol. Paint the letters and allow to dry before attaching the monogram onto the cake.

this is fantastic . thanks for the tutorial
The monogram looks great...did you design the wedding cake as well.
You have a great gift, I wish I was half as crafty as you...but I am not. That's why I leave this type of thing up to the professionals.
If you have anymore pictures of wedding cakes or the monograms you design please upload some more pics...would love to see all your work!
Really beautiful work!
Thanks for the tutorial. What a lovely cake - the monogram really works on it.

Thanks for posting this. This is great information and you made it super user friendly!
What a great tutorial! Love the design and colour
Wow, thanks so much for the tutorial. Can't wait to try this.
OMG you actually make that look easy. I know in real life I would find a way to mess it up, though. Yours is so perfect and beautiful I bet you have had a lot of practice. I'm getting my wedding cake already made from http://www.gatheringguide.com/ec/wedding_cakes_bakeries.html, but if I had a little more confidence I would try this on my own. Thanks!
WOW thanks so much! My mom (MOTB) is making my wedding cake and needed a "stress free" way to do GOLD script letters for our monogram! You saved her some big time stress, many thanks!
Thanks!! this is awesome! so simple... yet would have never thought about it myself... thanks
Do you have a tut on monogram cake topper made of fondant? I am dying to create one. TIA...
