I have the letter press things too, but they work just fine for me because I don't use the holder gadget. I lay a long piece of masking tape on my table, sticky side up, and after making sure the letters are in the right order I stick the flat backs of the letters on the tape, spaced however close or far apart needed. Press down gently to make sure everything is stuck well and fold over the extra tape on the ends to make "handles". Pick up the whole thing and flip it over. Smooth the tape on the back to assure everything is secure and then press your word(s) onto the cake. You can even use this method on the sides of a round cake.

Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say.


Well now isn't that clever! And I was going to throw it away next time I ran across it. Thanks for the tip.

For the wax paper squares, I used my scrapbooking paper cutter and did tons one night watching tv. Measured 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch squares.

Btw, what do you do with small wax paper squares?

You make royal icing flowers on them on top of a flower nail. Then you set each paper square (with its flower on top) in a flower former or flat surface to dry. icon_smile.gif
