Its called Letters and numbers Gum paste & fondant Mold Set. It was kind of expensive and I hate to not be able to use it.

I've used it with fondant but not gumpaste. It's a little tricky and takes a lot of patience. Check out my topsy turvy cake to see it.

Hi, if you have used 50/50 fondant and gumpaste, like their instructions, it shouldn't be that difficult. Here is a link from our fellow member tonedna's video on how to do a fondant border. Just use the same technique she is using there,

HTH.

I was using gumpaste only. I will try the fondant and gum paste mix.

Oh I bought that letter kit, the one with the plastic molds that look like candy molds? yeah, It was a real pain in the butt. I returned it. I couldnt justify the cost with how much trouble it was giving me. I'd rather pipe one letters.

Good Luck!

I had a horrible time with fondant, but used them to make two tone candy melt letters and they looked great!
