I would appreciate anyone sharing their favorite letter cutters and where you got them. 

 

I have the Funky Tappits, but I am not crazy about them.  They are hard to work with for one thing.  I may be wrong, but they seem kind of girlish and I wonder if they would look right on a boys cake.

 

Thank you for any insight or advice.

Love Clixsticks. Clixstix? Clicksticks? There's definitely an x in there somewhere. They're great. Lots of different fonts, and easy to push out.

Clikstix icon_biggrin.gif (always takes me a couple of attempts to get it right). 

 

I've started using these recently but still having some issues with them, don't know if I'm rolling my fondant too thickly or too thinly, they are certainly easier to get out than tappits though. I end up flinging fondant letters all over my kitchen.

Hahaha!! They should have named them Wack-it's. There's no "tapping" going on when I use mine!

anything, and I mean anything works better than my terrible handwriting. Tappits, Clixsticks, Wilton cookie cutters, Ateco cutters, Jem gumpaste cutters, Fat Daddios cutters, plastic chocolate letter molds, press sets.........

as long as I don't have to pipe in my miserable hand writing.  Cheers to everyone who writes beautifully with icing.

Clixstix , Clixstix , clixstix. I love them , I saved the cost of them in hourly rate the first time I used them. 

 

Much better than damn-its

The Clikstix are quite a nice shape and size, but I couldn't get on with them until I took the back ejector bit off!!!!!

 

I love the Jem letter set - but there's a knack to using them.  Use gum paste.  Roll it THIN.  Leave it to go leathery for a few minutes and THEN use them.  Use a very fine pick to tease them out the cutter....
