Alphabet Cutters

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy some new alphabet cutters. Right now, I have the Tappit script and funky fonts.....but I am looking for something different, stylish, and easy to use. Size 1 1/2" high by 1" wide or about that size. I use gumpaste as the medium.

Do you have an alphabet cutter set that you just love and can recommend to me? Thank you so very much!

Sorry I'm no help lol but would love to know as well if there were any "an alphabet cutter set that you just love and can recommend to me"

I have the funky tappits, the Wilton set and the cricut and I find them all to be a big pain in the you know what....

I have the tappits mentioned above but this weekend I needed something larger so I got out my chocolate molds, sprayed them with Pam and filled them with fondant then unmolded. Worked great.

I also have the funky tappit and another tappit which is very small, I find it easier working with the funky tappit but would a simple cutter. These are expensive where I live but going to the states in October and going to lose it then shopping cake supplies icon_smile.gif

I love the Windsor ClickStix. I have all of the letter & # sets and I use them frequently.

I love using letter cutters. I have some of the clickits, and some of the tappits, and am contemplating getting the jello jiggler letter cutters too. My question is how do people get nice uniform layers of letters... I mean sometimes people have a layer on top of a layer with a perfectly uniform (slightly larger) cut. I don't think it is just stretched a bit. It is 'too' perfect!

I have done layered letters with my Cricut Cake. The trick is to roll your gum paste very thin directly onto the cutting mat, which has been greased, and then put it in the freezer before you try to cut them.
I too have the tappits Funky Font and have trouble getting them to release from the cutter without tearing. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Yes I have figured out a good way to work with the tappits, roll your fondant/gumpaste very thin and put a small amount of Crisco with your fingers on the letter tappit and press lightly but firmly the tappit onto the fondant/gumpaste making sure that the letter cut out does not stick to the tappit but when you lift the tappit back up the letter is left on the table and then you can remove it icon_smile.gif Works very well but you need to make sure not to press hard enough that the fondant gets stuck into the tappit but still hard enough to get the cut out onto the fondant and using Crisco is key, rub it on the tappit before pressing it into the fondant.

In regards to getting the tappit letters to release, I roll out my gumpaste thin then let it sit for 10-15 minutes until the top dries. Then use the tappits like regular. They dont stick very often and if they do, just tap it on the counter and they pop right out. I think thats why they are called tappits!
