What do you use for your fondant lettering? Can you recommend specific fonts/molds/cut outs? Or do you do it by hand?

Not sure what type of font you are going for, but I just bought some FMM Tappits from Global sugar art and I love them. They come in different fonts and are very easy to use!

Hope that helps!

I've got several tappits. I like them a lot. But recently I bought clixstix and I am in LOVE!! So much easier to use and I don't have to worry about the noise when I'm working at 4am and the rest of the family is sleeping!!

I have fondant cutters, cookie cutters, and molds. One thing I did learn at ICES was to place plastic wrap over your fondant when using your cutters. This helps you get the fondant out of the cutters and will give you a rounded edge on your letters and numbers. I tried it and I loved it.

icon_eek.gif OMG thank you so much, grandmomof1!! I'm thinking about going downstairs and trying that right now!! I was wondering what to do because everything I was trying was destroying my little letters.

Grandmomof1 Thank you for sharing!! I've been looking all over for a way to help out with the lettering I have. It is so tiny and I tear them up every time! I was dreading making "Happy Birthday" I'm going to give it a try tonight! So excited :grin:

You are welcome everyone, but I was just sharing what someone once shared with me.
