I see fondant cakes with neat tiny writings on it. Is there a special brush or pen for fondant?

I use either edible food markers (Americolor or KopyKake are good brands) or a fine tip paint brush with americolor gels (they're a little bit thinner consistency than the wilton gels.

There are lots of diffent techniques!
Emboss - use stamps to imprint the letters. U can the leave them, dust, paint or pipe over.
Piping - dirrectly onto the cake.
Piping - onto paper, then let the icing/ chocolate dry, an apply to cake.

Cutters - not available that small, but could also be why u have seen.

Cutters aren't available but with people using machines like the Cricut, they can cut out smaller fonts.

I often use the Wilton tubes of colored icing and a small tip 2 or 3. Just have to write very carefully.

I was meaning cutters like tappits, although it depends what the op means if they are a good suggestion or not.

There are small letter and number stamps in the mosaic/stained glass section of craft stores. They are well defined and work on fondant or to use as an outline on buttercream.
