Great tutorial...thanx a bunch! Just started working with fondant and saw these in a local shop. Loved the font but had not idea what to do with them so I did not purchase. Will have to go back and pick up a set. Love the font. Thanx again :)

What an awesome technique! For me the trick has always been to roll the fondant/gumpaste out to just the right thickness and to use shortening instead of powdered sugar or cornstarch, but I love your method and I'm going to try it.

Thank you Claire!! I have no idea why when you click my name "shellb123" it comes up 'Chefbrooks' I wish they would fix that.... I'm not chefbrooks folks, that's an error!! I'm Michelle Bauer w/Love That Cake :) Thanks for helping clear that up!!!

Fab tutorial. Definitely going to give it a try next time I use my Tappits. I often tap the things so hard I'm worried I'll break them - and still end up not always being able to get the letter out whole!!!

That's a fantastic idea. Thanks for such a clear and concise tutorial. I usually am ok with tappits but have the all too often off-day! Can I ask if this works with all tappits - small letters and shapes and not just the funky letters please? Thanks

I don't see why not :) I haven't tried them all but they should be the same!! I use choco-pan gumpaste & it works brilliantly! Good luck!!! :)

OMG! I don't know how many letters I have slung across the room. I will definitely be using this on next makeup of letters. Thanks

Great idea i was just about to give up on my tappits gonna try this. How thin should i roll the gumpaste for this to work? Thanks

Hi , I was just about to get rid of them. You just came in time with these wonderfull solution. Thank u so much. God bless you!

I have a decent method.. But it does require tapping till occasionally they fling out in a pile! Lol! I am excited for a less fling method :D

Ha Ha Ha you guys cracked me up!!! ;) You can also try this method right side up & see which way you like it better!! I like to use Choco Pan gumpaste & it works brilliantly w/this method!! To answer your question; I always roll out my gumpaste to a # 6 on the pasta roller no matter what method I'm doing. When using the tappits the "recommended" way (as long as it's a $ 6 w/gumpaste) I don't really have a problem tapping them out ;) So, at least you all have a variety of ways to try them!! P.S. No more throwing/burning/breaking or swearing at them hopefully right?!?! LOL GL all!! ;)

I use fondant with my tappets and put them in the freezer.  They generally pop right out with a prod from a stick.  But this method looks great.

Wish I knew it when I was doing a Wordle came for a customer. My wife and I had real tough time removing fondant, tapping them hard on different surfaces including palms of our hand. And not to mention how the letters fly away.
Would love to try this technique.
Just simple question; does wrap leave any marks/line on the fondant? specially if using with small letter-cutters.
