Making different fonts out of fondant?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i have a few cutters that i can use for fondant to make signs and such but i need to make some new fonts. Any ideas on how i can transfer from paper to fondant? I usually find the font i want on dafont.com then print and cut each individual letter with knife, this is so time consuming. Any ideas on how to maybe make this somewhat easier?

Any suggestions would be great!
My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.

Tappits cutters have a couple of different fonts.

Cricut cake

I second the Cricut Cake vote. If I use it for nothing else, it will revolutionize my ability to apply writing to cakes. So far, I've done some large single letters - monograms of sorts. And a couple of logos. It is wonderful to be able to use the specific fonts needed. It can cut any font you have on your computer. Truth in promoting, however...you can't do that without some additional software. I use Sure Cuts a Lot. About $60. It's sooooo worth it.

If you don't want to invest in that, I'd think about printing the fonts in the appropriate size onto some transparency sheets and then cutting those out with an Xacto knife - making some stencils out of them. You could use those for templates for cutting letters. It probably wouldn't be as tidy as Cricut, but it would sure get the job done!

I got the Cricut for the same reason. I have serious isues and fears about writing on cakes and was starting to turn down cakes that involved any kind of writing.

I am not a good "cake writer" either and did the same thing (paper to fondant) - ugh, so time consuming!!

So, I started using stencils for my letters (I cannot afford the cake cricut...but it is on my wish list icon_lol.gif ). I have a ton of stuff from my scrapbook room and these stencils came in handy. It's not as quick as actual cutters, but (i) they are pretty cheap, and (ii) it eliminated at least one of the steps (cutting the paper letters).
