I use a tip I learn from Sharon (aka-Sugarshack). I roll my fondant/gumpaste very thin, cut into squares (size as needed)...let them set for about 15 to 20 mins. (might have to dry a little longer). Dust some PS or Cornstarch on to the tippits then cut out my letters. This way has worked the best for me so far. Hope this can help.

God Bless,

PS.... I was adviced also to try using cling wrap... in between the fondant/gumpaste and the tappits....

I tried it this last time... works really good!!! no PS... no shortening... just cling wrap...

I used to have lots of problems with my tappits until I started putting a little shortening one the fondant before cutting. Now I have no problems at all and just love to use them. They come out so smooth around the edges too! I just did my granddaughters cake with them and I think it turned out really nice! HTH!
