I've fallen in love with the font that this decorator uses on her cakes. I've looked all over the internet but haven't been able to identify the font nor find it. Can someone help identify the name of the lettering set or tell me where I can buy this? Thanks!
Here are some pictures of her beautiful cakes with the font/lettering that I love:

This looks like it...

There's a couple of tricks to using these tappits. First: Watch youtube videos. Second: Roll your gum paste VERY thin and let it dry for about 20-45 minutes BEFORE trying to cut. Third: Lightly 'dip' your tappits in powdered sugar or cornstarch, then shake or tap off excess to allow a quick, clean release of the letters.
Thank you so much for your replies! @Apti, I was on the Global Sugar website but I just couldn't recognize the font from their product pictures. Thanks so much for your help. Your tips/tricks are a lifesaver too! I would have made a mess of the letters if you hadn't thrown those tips in there.
Another thing I do with the tappits is put a piece of clear plastic wrap over the fondant and then press over it. It cuts the letters but the fondant does not get stuck to the mold.
That sounds like a great trick! I will definitely try that! Thanks for helping out a newbie !
@sillykar - you are most welcome. (I was a newbie not so long ago and lovely people here on CC helped me improve--just passing along the love...)
Both the Patchwork and the Tappits are flat. I have the tappits, and they do not look like what the OP is looking for. The lettering in the sample pics are raised, 3 dimensional, not flat. I am also interested in those molds. Let us know where you find what you are looking for.
Pretty sure they are tappits if ur fondant or Gumpaste is rolled really thin they come out flat if it's a little thicker they come out more 3D
Mine don't come out flat either @SweetShop5 as I do the plastic food wrap method like you and @ropalma . Works like a charm every time. You still need to let the paste dry like @Apti says, so they don't get deformed.
Mine look exactly like those in the photo. Course, not everyone rolls out their paste super thin and that makes them look fatter.
I needed a refresher course on how to use my tappits..........THANK YOU
