fondant alphabet cutters

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Several weeks ago I came across something here I think about some alphabet push molds...they had a funny name and I can't remember what it was...not the tappits...but something where you pressed into the fondant and then pushed it out with another piece....can anyone help with the name? Thanks!

Was it the Clikstix series sold at Global?

I forgot to add if you get them, when you go to use them, roll your fondant extra thin to get them to turn out correct. I had to play with them to get the right look. But once I figured out how thin the fondant needed to be, they are the BEST!

Nice job on the monkey cake. I was looking at these earlier and put them in my wish list. I'm on a budget so I have to pace myself.

Thank you all for the reviews. I have the tappits and while I really like them, these look much easier.

thank you for the compliment on the monkey cake...I had a great time doing it. And I understand pacing yourself on what you buy. These are worth the money, so keep saving and then treat yourself.
I myself am saving for an airbrush!! I am thinking it will be awhile before I can afford it, but still, you have to set a goal. icon_cool.gificon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif

I learned a tappits trick on here. After you roll your fondant thin, lay a piece of Saran wrap I've the fondant the press down the tappits. They come out perfect every time. I struggled with tappits until I learned that. Gotta love CC

Oh wow! SO you lay saran wrap down on the thin rolled out fondant, then press the tappits through the fondant and saran wrap? Is that how you stated it? Reason I"m asking is because I got my new tappit set and like it, but it took a lot of work to get them fondant pressed out of the tappit to come out nice..so I hope this tip will benefit me quicker and neater!

Thanks and I"ll have to try those other cutters out too! Sounds great!

Yep that's exactly what you do. The letters on my cars cake were done this way. The saran wrap keeps them from sticking in the cutter and allows you to press really firmly. You still have to let them set up a few minutes before moving them onto the cake but it works great. I was afraid the Saran would cause wrinkles but I had no problems.

Wow...I can't wait to try the Saran Wrap trick...I've always only used gumpaste with mine as the fondant was such a mess sticking in it. Thanks everyone for the response...can't wait to buy some of those clickstix too!

Does the ejector come with the groovy set or do you buy it separately? Thanks![/img]
