Creates beautiful, professional looking lettering for your cake.
Easy and quick to use after a little practice.
Although these cutters are advertised as for use with fondant, most people found the fondant too sticky and soft to use with these tappits. They reported much better results using gumpaste.
Tips From Customers
Use gumpaste rather than fondant.
Dust your surface and the cutter with some cornstarch to stop sticking.
After you have cut out the letter, rub it across the surface f your hand with a little cornstarch to get rid of any ragged edges.
Practice rolling out the gumpaste to the correct thickness.
Once you have rolled out your gumpaste thinly, let it sit for a couple of minutes before cutting.
