I have a set of wilton letter/number cutters. Most of the letters come out ok but some of the letters get stuck or tare when they come out. Does anyone else have these problems? I made the letter B 22 times today before getting an ok one. Does anyone use a different kind and like them?

I have found that you need to let the fondant sit for awhile after you have rolled it out. Let it stiffen up a little bit. brush your cutters with a little cornstarch and then cut, twisting a little to get a clean cut. They usually come out pretty easy after that!

Edited to add: I forgot to also say that I read somewhere that you can pop the cut out letters into the freezer for a few minutes before you move them and they won't get distorted. Haven't tried it yet, but it might work!

I always use a tooth pick very lightly to pop out the centres and nudge it out when I use those cutters - they work better when the fondant isn't too thin
