I loathe writing on cakes. Even my regular handwriting is bad, but on cakes, Yikes! So I've done things like: make a little plaque and print on it with edible markers, stamp into gumpaste with little clay stampers, etc. Finally I bought a set of Tappits, the upper case script letters. I watched the tutorial on how to get the best results. I made my gum paste very stiff, rolled it very thin, let it dry a bit, dusted the cutter with corn starch,, Everything they said to do! And those aggravating letters would stick in the cutter and I had to dig them out gently with a toothpick which made them go all wonky! I tried tapping them hard to get the letters out. That didn't even come close to working! I despise the hateful little things and wonder why anyone would ever buy them? Please tell me your experience with them. I'm so frustrated!
