For the letters to stand up you're best to use gum paste also remember to insert your tooth pick while it is still soft to have a support to put in the cake. You can cut them out but what I see most people do is they shape a gum paste snake to the desired shape. I've done them in cookie pops, they only need 24hrs to dry and are sturdy.
