I tend to use Gourmet Writer Food Decorator Pens or food markers when I am creating messages for my son’s lunch. They are a little more expensive than regular markers, but I know they are safe. If you are writing on a banana, its thick skin will protect the fruit inside. Non-food markers should be okay. I have used them on banana skins too. If you think it is not okay, stick to the food markers.
A pin was used to create the appearing designs. I like to make sure pins are super clean before I use them to create.
