I haven't seen any, so I dont know if they exist. The smallest letter cutters I have are probably the script click sticks, but I just wondered if you could get any little tiny ones to write more on a cake. Someone has asked me for a cake with some writing in a speech bubble, but to use any of my cutters the bubble is going to have to be pretty big! I've seen somewhere on some cupcakes little letters pressed into the fondant on top of a cupcake, but dont know where to buy those either! Any suggestions anyone? I'm in the UK x

Wilton makes a set but they are probably 3/4" to 1' big.

Can you make a fondant plaque for the bubble? It would give you more space and can be placed at a tilt without interfering with your overall design.

I've got some small patchwork cutters for numbers and they do alphabet ones in those so it might be worth seeing if they are about the right size?

I just bought some tiny letter embossers from Michael's in the clay supply aisle. You could cut out the speech bubble and emboss it, rather than glue cut out letters.

Instead of buying something, can you just write or print it?

I've seen cake where the decorator used the Wilton letters designed to be a template to guide the icing. It looks nice, but still only an indentation. I can't write on cakes, so I look for every option.

I have made a "scroll" or "tag" and used the writing pens. They don't work that well. I have also used Sharpies to do the same thing. They work great. I just tell the client that the scroll is inedible and that it is written in Sharpie. They have tons of colors.

I actually didnt even think about that, I do have some food colouring pens but I dont think they are that good. Sharpies are a great idea! I actually found out today that the girl I was making it for next week doesnt even want the cake anymore icon_sad.gif but I will remember tips for future reference. I just wish I didn't have to buy online so I could look at the things I was buying!

I meant write or print it by piping with icing. When someone asks for writing on a cake, I think they'd expect piped icing in cursive handwriting or printed piping.
