My daughter made macarons last week and decided to use a pencil to sketch out the shapes on parchment paper. Unfortunately the pencil markings (lead) ended up on the bottom of the macarons. What would be an alternative (edible) writing instrument that we could use for this kind of thing?
Plain pencil is what is normally used. The trick is that you draw on the reverse side of the parchment, and then flip it over so the food is on the non-written on side.
