Betty's Tip: Writing tips come in many sizes and can be used to write messages and make dots, beads and outlines. Popular writing tips include numbers 1 through 4 (small), 5 through 12 (medium), and 1A and 2A (large). We found that a number 5 writing tip works great for writing and making a bow on this cake.
