I'm looking at purchasing letter cutters or molds to use on cakes as my freehand to write any messages is horrible. So I'm wondering what would be easier to use, the cutters or molds like either of these:
Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I like the FMM ones...the cutters. I have their funky letter alphabet and LOVE it! I would think cutters would be easier than molds...
i feel like molds always distort when i take em out.. and for letters that are sooo small.
Check out this video on how to use cutters.

I have the FMM cutters (funky alphabet) and the finished product is beautiful but they are a pain in the.....well, you get the picture. They are very time consuming - especially if you are spelling out a message rather than just a name.
You need to roll your paste super thin and let it dry just a bit, then they come out better. And they are fantastic looking. I often wonder if I should spend my lazy evenings (watching Law & Order) cutting out a bunch of these puppies in white so when I have a cake, I can paint/airbrush/dip the ones I need...........
Thank you all! for the feedback, it will certainly help me to decide.
I have seen the Aine2 youtube video, in fact I have it saved in my Youtube favs to refer back to later on. She's awesome!
CakeDiva73 - Law & Order fan are you? Me too, mostly the L&O Criminal Intent, I've scaled back on watching the others, but I can never get enough of Det. Goran and Ames.
