I've seem some cakes with really darling writing on them and it looks as if the letters are made from fondant or gumpaste. The writing is usually very whimsical looking. Does anyone have any idea of what I'm talking about and please point me in the right direction for instruction.
They're probably made with Tappits. It's a cutter. You can see them at Global Sugar Art.

You can also print out a font on your computer and use that as a template. Before I got my tappits that's what I did. This method is also handy for larger letters (ie for toppers).
Here's 2 video's (the first one is Edna's and the other is Lorraine's) on how to use the tappits as well:
