Excellent tutorial, I love tappits and I wish this had been around when I started with them. Just to throw in my twopence worth, I find cornflour works better than icing sugar and once they are on the board or cake, I lightly brush with vodka to remove excess and bring the colours up nice and bright.

Wheeew...sure am glad someone posted this. I just got mine in about 3 weeks ago. Tried them out and just about gave up. I tried just about everything. This gives me hope that maybe there is a way. Thanks, well see how it goes on my next cake!!

I love my tappits too. I have all the letters/numbers and the one with the scroll" type edging patterns. I use fondant with some gum-tex powder worked into it. As this tutorial says, roll it very thin and let it sit for a few minutes before even going for the tappits. I use powdered sugar to roll mine out also. I find dark colours OK when I use a dry paint brush to dust away any powdered sugar, and a super light brush with shortening (or vodka as mentioned) solves the problem.

YAY I tried this technique last night and it worked ON THE FIRST TRY for each letter! I think the key for me was to let the fondant sit for a few minutes after rolling it out very thin. Thanks for the tutorial!

I was about to throw away some tiny snowflake cutters because the fondant sticks in every little nook and cranny of them. I think I'll have to try them again with this technique. Thanks so much for posting.

I have a question for anyone who uses the funky tappits -- I have them, and love them and have had no trouble with them EXCEPT for the capital D -- I cannot get the inside of that letter to cut for beans! icon_confused.gificon_cry.gif Does anyone else have this problem? (Notice it's the ONLY letter I have this issue with...) icon_confused.gif
