Can someone please tell me how to make the large lettering out of fondant? I have seen it on many cakes, and have attempted to ask the person but I haven't gotten a response back. I need large lettering an have no idea where to begin?? Is there a stencil or something out there that I am just not finding? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!
I don't know if this is the lettering you are talking about, but I use Funky Tappits by FMM. You can google it and see if they are what you are talking about. I love mine. They do take a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, I think they look great.
Thanks! I will look at them. I will attempt to add a picture to show what I am looking at.
I think some people do the lettering on their cricut machines
You can make a template of the letter that you want out of plastic or cardboard, that way you can make it to the size that you are looking for.
Take a look at my cake pictures... I use the FMM letter cutter sets a lot and I love them. You do have to use gum paste with them though, not fondant. I've also hand cut letters using a clean X-Acto knife and template (but again, you should use gum paste or at least half gum paste and half fondant). You'll see my hand cut letters on the Sesame Street cake - they took a long time to do though. Good luck!
Thanks so much!
I will have to attemt to draw them out I guess. I have never used gumpaste before, and wouldn't know where to even begin. I just started really trying to make cakes, and have a special request and I got stumped with the lettering. I will try making my own for this one an maybe attempt to the gumpaste route for the next one. I don't have enough time to practice a whole lot before I need the cake.
Thanks again for all the help! I really do appreciate it!
