Review: Wilton FoodWriter Edible Color Markers

If you've followed my blog before you know that I love creating cute bento lunches for my daughter. I try to challenge myself to make unique designs each day. Much of the detailing on these bentos is done with edible markers. I bought these Wilton FoodWriter Edible Color Markers because they were a good price and I thought the basic colors would be used a lot. They worked OK the first time or 2 that I used them, but only on VERY smooth cheese. They would not work on anything porous at all. After a few uses they barely worked anymore. Not even on Provolone. DO NOT BUY these markers! They will be a complete waste of your money as they will NOT work as you want. I've talked with others in a private online group I'm in and they agree that these suck!
I recently picked up Betty Crocker Edible Markers and they are working well so far. Do you recommend any good edible markers?

  1. HA! I love the thumbs down picture. Too funny...

  2. The photo is hilarious. I'm guessing you didn't like the markers, right?


  3. I agree, unfortunately I already wasted my money but BOO, Wilton! let us know if the others work better.

  4. Thanks for the sharing! I never use edible marker before and I am in the midst of thinking of buying one from Wilton because of the brand name! Luckily I read your post :)
    That thumbs down photo says it all, haha...

  5. I agree I have them and they are a total FAIL. Love the pic I feel the same way.

  6. I thought I was having trouble myself or something wrong with my coloring,just dislike those markers!!Thanks for sharing Diana and your thumbs down pix looks cool:)

  7. I've done a few other reviews of things I think that SUCK and they also have my thumbs down photo. I took that about 2 years ago! I did some thumbs up too!

  8. I bought them, too, and I agree - thumbs down! I can't find the Betty Crocker ones here but I'm still looking for them. Haven't found any other brands either other than the Wilton. Disappointed that they didn't work very well as many other Wilton products are good products.
