There was thread about this a month or two ago. It had several suggestions:
Let the fondant dry a bit first
Put plastic wrap between the fondant and the cutter

are the two I remember. There's also a youtube video by Tonedna and Aine2 also has a video showing how to use them.

You need to use a bit of tylose in your fondant ,Gumpaste or mexican paste. Roll thin leave for a while dab tappits into a little ps then tap.
I personaly do it this way but prefer to smear the surface underneath with shortening rather than use ps.

The advise that I was given was to dip the cutter in shortening and/ or cornstarch first and then cut. I also watch Toneda's video. Hope this helps. It worked for me.

I just use straight gumpaste rolled thin, and it comes out super ps, shortening, or anything else needed.

I agree with adding tylose to fondant, rolling it thinly & letting it dry for a few minutes before you cut. You may try searching using 'tapits, or tap-its" on you tube. Edna has a great video showing the shortening method that was mentioned above. icon_smile.gif Best of luck!

I used gumpaste rolled thin - put a dusting of cornstarch on top of the gumpaste - then used the cutters. They slipped right out. Some letters are more cooperative than others. I think the are super cute & worth the little struggle. Good luck!!
