AI purchased the lower case tappits - the very tiny ones, not sure what they're called exactly. It's the first set of tappits I've used, only size that was available here.

I've watched videos on how to use tappits previously - looks simple enough. But I can't seem to get these to come out for the life of me! They always get stuck. I used gumpaste - made with Wilton gumtex. Anyone else ever find this difficult to use and what helped you? They're adorable, I'd love for them to work.

AMgreen, I use tappitts all the time, I roll my fondant wafer thin so you can see though it, and a really good sharp whack on a hard board and they should come out.

Ive never used them but in this video she uses powered sugar to coat the tappit before hand to make it easier to get it out....hope this helps....

try the saran wrap method next time you use them.  It works well.

AThank you buys! I'm going to try again tomorrow! If I can get these to work I'm going to order the others!

AI think I have most of then and once you master them they're not so bad to use.

Also, let your gumpaste sit about 10-15 minutes before you use them. The gumpaste will not be sticky and won't stick in the tappit.
