They are very easy to use..
Best bit of advise...after rolling out your fondant or gumpaste...allow either to sit and air dry for a good 4 minutes or so.
That way when you use your tappit, the actual shape wont stretch and drag.
After tapping the shape out of the bench...again, let it sit for a good 4 minutes or so - tht way it will have dried enough for you to lift with a spatula and add to your cake.
I use sugar glue to attach the little shapes to my cakes.
Using a small brush just dab the back of your letter/shape and place on your cake.
Equal parts castor sugar and water bought to the boil -
Allow to cool - then use.
Keeps in the fridge in a sterilized jar for up to 3 weeks.
