Tappits / Picture Tutorial

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hi...

I like most of you here, used to dread using tappit, they would get stuck, distored, or had jagged edges among many other things...

But... after many tries... I found a fail-proof way... with this method... you will see that it is not only easy... but fun to do...

Points to keep in mind:
1) Keep your surface heavily powdered.
2) Roll your gumpaste/fondant very thin
3) Keep out on open air for 2-5 minutes, let it dry a bit
4) Dust your tappits before each use
5) Move you paste at times to make sure it's not sticking

Hope this is helpful to you...

Lovely tutorial!!!!I also do it this way but use crisco on my board and tappits when cutting out dark coloured gumpaste as powdered sugar tends to dull dark colours.

Crisco? can u epxlain to me a little more?I would love to try that way also... I do brush them and they are fine, but I wonder how it would be with crisco.... doesn't it take longer to dry when covered in it?

Not at all, I rub my surface very lightly with the crisco, roll my gumpaste over it thinly, lightly brush my tappit with the crisco and cut out and the cutouts fall out of the tappits so easily you'll just love using it.It dries just as fast as using PS without the mess.
