Hi all,

Is there any particular type of Tappit or Cutters I can buy to get the MAC logo lettering? I've seen some wonderful cakes on here and I've pm some users and to my heartache the logo was done free hand icon_cry.gif . I'm waiting on the others to respond.

I've been practicing my freehand technique and so far its a no go. I know there probably aren't any tappits or cutters that are exactly like the logo but I am willing to buy any that are pretty close! thumbs_up.gif

MAC makeup? Mac the computer? Best thing I can think of is print out a template, put a thin sheet of GP of fondant over it, shine a flashlight under a glass table (or pyrex cake pan) and trace it with edible marker. The paint and fill in as needed. I do this for monograms and stuff I need very specific lettering/images for. Also, if it is a straightforward design, you can cut it out of semi dry fondant or GP with an exacto knife.

If I need a specific logo I usually just print out the logo from the computer and place it on top of fondant/gumpaste and trace around it with an exacto knife.

When I do the MAC logo; I usually just print the logo off from the computer; place it on the cake(usually fondant); then do the "pin-prick" method. Once I do that, I just go over it with BC and then paint it silver.

Thanks guys for all of your suggestions. icon_biggrin.gif

I meant the MAC makeup logo. (sorry icon_biggrin.gif )I heard from all of those who made those wonderful cakes and they all "free hand" it so I will have to as well. icon_redface.gif

I am also considering doing the letters with candy melts as a chocolate Transfer. I looked online and I did find the logo. I will print it out and see. I am so nervous b/c I really want it to look neat and clean! But I am going to try all of those and see which one looks the best and go from there!
