I made these for a friends' wedding, as decoration for their wedding pies* (as opposed to cakes...lovely idea, no?) They both love scrabble, and I suggested something small and cute to reflect that.
(ignore the small smudge- I cleaned them up before presentation...)
I rolled the marzipan to about 1/4 inch thickness, then cut out the pieces at about 170% actual size.
I then used a rubber stamp to emboss the 'E's and 'L's onto the pieces. I had originally planned to just stamp the letter on with edible ink/gel food colouring, but abandoned that idea after a few smudged disasters...
After letting them set a bit, I hand 'inked' the embossed letters, using gel colouring in black and a toothpick.
20 pies in all...they were a hit!
*I did not make the pies- they came from a local bakery- Banana cream and Chocolate cream- delicious!)
