I've been searching for these plastic alphabet cutters for ages with no luck, unfortunately. icon_cry.gif So frustrating! icon_rolleyes.gif I don't suppose anybody here knows where I might buy them?

Thanks for that Foxy

...those numbers are Wilton ones, I don't *think* the alphabet cutters I'm for looking are Wilton (which is a shame - if they were they'd be easier to find!)

Will keep looking. icon_smile.gif

What size are they? Just wondering because the font is very similar to one of the Clikstix range by Windsor http://www.windsorcakecraft.co.uk/Groovy%20Uppercase%20Clikstix.html?category_id=332, which might work for you in a pinch. They are really easy to use.

I have those Clickstix, and they are great. The ones I'm looking for are larger though...will try and find a picture of them on cake if I can.

Can you tell us the deminions of each cutter (generally, not each letter *exactly* icon_smile.gif

and here are the same cutters used on these (gorgeous!) cupcakes, which give a better idea of size:

Sorry, no clue on the cutters... and I can't stop staring at those bears on the cupcakes with their cute supershiny noses icon_biggrin.gif

I know - don't you just wanna hug those cupcakes? - way too cute!

I have asked Crafty Confections if they knew what brand of cutters they are, she was kind enough to tell me that she'd bought them off ebay a couple years ago and gave me the name of the seller, unfortunately the seller doesn't have anything listed on ebay anymore. She didn't know the brand.

Have you looked at cookie cutters. I have some plastic ones that are about that size, they don't have the ampersand and they are by wilton.

Are these the ones you want? They are made by "Cooks Tools", and these are available. http://www.etsy.com/listing/61280943/cooks-tools-26-piece-alphabet-cookie

Not quite...the corners on those are sharp rather than rounded. I quite like the rounded look. Those would be about the right size though I think.

I think you're right...they probably would be sold as cookie cutters. I've been searching for cookie cutters as well as fondant/cake decorating cutters.

I bought those from a shop close to me recently. They are great and I bought the numbers as well. I think they are made by Fat Daddio but I can't be sure as they just came in a plastic bag.
