I'm not sure but it looks like royal icing. You can print any font type and size on white paper copy. Place the paper under a piece of cello. Trace with royal icing (might need some thinning) and when dry carefully peeled off.

Hi ivgotahalo! I'm so glad you like my cake! bashini is exactly right, it's the JEM cutters. I just did a cake last night with them too, I use them for all my lettering cause I'm terrible at piping any kind of writing. Thanks again!

There are so many cute alaphabet cutters. =o) I love the funky cutters and the script cutters. I think they might be FMM though.

Since your new I'd like to warn you not to try to do these with just fondant, use gumpaste or a 50/50 gumpaste and fondant mix. Also dip the cutters in corn starch. Good luck.

Are those different from Tappits? Are the JEM ones actual cutters?

Leahs - they are individual cutters (and they are *great*! Expensive but great!)

Wow , I didn't know they had individual ones, guess I'm gonna have to order some of those also. That's what I hated about the other type you can't freely get a certain letter to come without another one joining in. Thanks for the info thumbs_up.gif

i use these with fondant frequently instead of gumpaste.
i use toedna's shortening trick from her youtube video (thank you edna! you are terrific) and use a bit of cornstarch (dusted onto cutter with a food only paintbrush) and they come out like a charm.

I got my tappits (after watching Edna use hers!!) from the source in the UK that makes them. They have a great selection, including the lower case funky alphabet, and love them! I plan to look into these JEM cutters too. This style is very nice.

Hi

Are these individual letters? Or are they strips? Do they work kind of like a cookie cutter?

Thanks

Kimberly : )

These funky ones we are talking of are strips, but up further there is a link to single letters by JEM. I want to try those , I have all the others and sometimes I struggle with those. I'm not a pro........... icon_lol.gif
