Tips From Customers
Use gum paste 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 gum paste to the correct thickness.
Once you have rolled out your gum paste thinly, let it sit for a couple of minutes before cutting.
