I have a set of wilton letter/number cutters. Most of the letters come out ok but some of the letters get stuck or tare when they come out. Does anyone else have these problems? I made the letter B 22 times today before getting an ok one. Does anyone use a different kind and like them?
I have found that you need to let the fondant sit for awhile after you have rolled it out. Let it stiffen up a little bit. brush your cutters with a little cornstarch and then cut, twisting a little to get a clean cut. They usually come out pretty easy after that!
Edited to add: I forgot to also say that I read somewhere that you can pop the cut out letters into the freezer for a few minutes before you move them and they won't get distorted. Haven't tried it yet, but it might work!
This might help...
Edna, Thanks so much for sharing, your always so helpful!!!!
I always use a tooth pick very lightly to pop out the centres and nudge it out when I use those cutters - they work better when the fondant isn't too thin
