Does anyone have any tips for how they do their lettering so it comes out really clean and not sloppy.
Thanks.

You can use tappit cutters to do fondant lettering...if buttercream you can use the Wilton letter presses.

Use food marker on a fondant plaque if you have nice writing...or just practice, practice, practice using a bag of icing and small round tip!

Pretty much if you have naturally neat writing you can learn to write neatly on a cake....if not, then you probably should invest in little fondant cutters or the letter imprinters or even think about doing edible image text.
