I just bought this today and I am loving all of the cookie cutters. Especially the letters. Does anyone else have this? My son and I are making sugar cookies and they make the nicest cuts!! Does anyone know where I can look where anyone has used these cookie cutters? Or you could e-mail me at toddntrisha@verizon.net I would love to see!

I've been trying to get up the nerve to buy that set. Wasn't sure if it would be worth it or not. What all comes in it other than letters and numbers

I used my W101 cutters for this bouquet. Lettering, small butterfly, some flower parts were cut from NFSC, then MMF cut for decorating. My only problem with plastic cutters is they tend to leave a little ragged edge, which I used a skewer to scrape away. Not hard, just bothersome.


I used my Michaels' coupon to get mine, so the price was definitely right. And now I have a good collection to build from.

I'm not a big cookie maker... But I have used the daisy cutter to make the cookie ouquets that went with my "crazy daisies" cake.

I also used the train, car and airplane to cut out the fondant pieces for my son's first birthday cake (Planes, trains and automobiles). And the hearts to make my fondant cut outs for the patchwork conversation hearts cake. I used the various rounds all the time for cake related things as well. icon_smile.gif

Hi trishalynn!
I started out with the set of 100 Wilton's plastic cutters, and have made many cookies with them. Flowers, Halloween, Christmas, dogs - you name it. But let me warn you...it will be the beginning of a pretty serious addiction icon_confused.gif I bought them last May and now own over 300 cookie cutters icon_eek.gif The Wilton set has the basic shapes, numbers and letters to get you started. Have fun with it icon_smile.gif

My MIL bought them for me for Christmas one year. I used the Easter egg cutter to do the eggs that I just posted this week. (Sorry, I tried to attach a link to them, but it didn't work. I'm hopelessly computer challenged! Check my photos to see the cookies. They were alot of fun to do).

Yes these work. I use them with fondant. I find to get rid of jagged edges you need to push firmly down and shuffle it around just a touch like little quick circles, a shimmy and shake- before you lift up the cutter. And there is an acurate picture on the side of the box as to all the goodies inside. I got mine for less then $8 bucks at walmart. somebody must have marked it down wrong.. icon_lol.gif

I have them too and I just love them! I have to keep them in tupperware bins under my bed, cause my toddler (17 months old) loves them too. He is always trying to lose them. I couldn't take it anymore...I had to make sure they were safe. LOL. And I'm supposed to be teaching him to share. HA.

I have them and LOVE them. I would actually consider them one of my "must have" items. I've used them for everything from cookies, brownies, rice krispies, fondant (ALL the time!), marking designs on cakes, ... I also love the fact that they are plastic and dont loose their shape when I dump them in the box.

I keep them in my kitchen with the picture of the cutters facing out. That way I can quickly look to see if it has a design I can use.


PS to get a clean-cut with fondant, I usually cut the fondant and then pick it up (the fondant sticking in the cutter) and run my finger around the cutter to clean up the edges. Then I tap it on the counter and have the fondant "fall" out (so the shape dosnt get distorted).
