I have some alphabet cookie cutter that would maybe be about that size. Picked them up at Michael's a long time ago.

No tappit I've ever seen. The fondant looks too thick to have been 'through' a tappit. My guess would be small cookie cutters too.
Good luck finding it; that's a great cake!!

I have a set that came with the 101 cookie cutters and they are about that size and shape. Can anyone say coupon and a trip to Michaels! icon_biggrin.gif

I have the 101 cutters from Michaels and the letters do not look that big and defined. The edges of the letters are more rounded.

Perhaps they're hand-cut! ?

The font looks like Budmo Jiggler.

I figured it was too thick to be a tappit, but I've looked for cutters like this and haven't found any that appear to be this size...I'll check Michaels...

I have her book with this cake and she says she used 1-1/4" alphabet letter cutters but doesn't say where she got them. Also says to use a paring knife or exacto to clean up any rough edges.

i made a simialrly lettered cake of her's for my son's 4th birthday (2 years ago, it was my first big cake). i could not find cutters big enough with clean angular lines like hers, so i used a chocolate mold. i actually used the candy melts in them then piped chocolate dots on them and they worked great.

p.s. here's a picture. it's not a great cake, remember it was my first icon_smile.gif

I have that 101 cutter set from Michaels, and the PP is correct, the letters in that kit are rounded - not the same look.
