Easy Monogram Template Tutorial

Monograms have been a big trend with wedding cakes now for a couple of years. I do at least one or two monograms a month. I have several different methods I use, but this will be my new “easy monogram” method. And I must confess that I been obsessed with Pinterest lately, so I asked my hubby to help me make my tutorial “Pinterest Friendly”. I’m not sure that it is Pinterest Friendly (its longer than I expected), but it is a very easy method for making monograms.

Since the time I ran across this technique, I have used it many times and I’m still surprised at how well it works!

PS – When I was taking pictures or this tutorial, I just grabbed a swatch of green fondant that was nearby. Normally you would use a piece that didn’t have a big crack running through it! ;-)

Perfect, jus what I needed. Thank you.


Thanks for all the positive comments! I really did stumble on this by mistake. I was rolling out some modeling chocolate one night and my oval monogram dropped and landed right on the modeling chocolate as I rolled over it. I was astonished at how perfect the impression was so I cut out the letters and tried it again. BAM! I was hooked on the method from there on.
