I have seen this type of writing in a lot of ckaes online and was wondering if it is a kind of stencil/ cutter/ special tip.
Check this link for a sample of this.
Would love to know how it works as the result is very neat and uniform
Those are called tappits: http://www.globalsugarart.com/search.php?search=tappits
What do you do with these? Do you press them into fondant and then pipe over them? Or are they stamped?
You cut the letters out of fondant or gumpaste.

Thank you so much for this link. I've never done anything like this as i mostly work with royal icing. It's so exciting to learn new things here!!
Hi i bought those cutters, they are very very small, i didn't use the sugar, but she even say's they give her problems, i even let them set, but it doesn't cut say the spaces between the e's E, i found them to be very time consuming, way to much time. when you pick them up they break or they get really out of shape. to me they are not worth the $8.99 or even less, for me they were a pain in the bu-----
They do take some getting used to using. I've had troubles at times with them but the trick that worked for me is to use only gumpaste (no fondant)...the gumpaste needs to be fairly dry...if adding color you may want to make it up a few hours ahead of when you want to actually start cutting out your letters. I spread a little shortening on my mat and press my tappets into powdered sugar before using it and it comes out great. Really you may just want to experiment until you find what works for you. They are cute though in the end.
I agree that they just take some getting used to. Every time I start a project I have a few bad ones before I get the hang of it. I love them.
