They look great on the cake! Once you get the hang of them they are pretty easy. I used them on the Back to School cake I just posted on my photos. Make sure you dip the cutter in powdered sugar first. Then press down on the gumpaste and turn over and run your finger over the cutter to get a clean cut. Then I lay the one end on the table and pull back the top so it flings onto the table surface. Or you can just quickly and firmly hit the tappit onto the table. Usually it will fly out without damage. Sometimes they get damaged but overall it goes pretty quickly. Good luck.
