If you want actual stencils, you can check the art section at michaels. They are not food safe though. Else you can but the tappits, etc letters from a cake supply place.

I have bought a few different ones from here -
Postage killed me icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif but they are food safe and very sturdy to use.

I got mine at Flour Confections! icon_smile.gif Not a bad price at all..
You can buy edible markers there too - to write on fondant cut outs icon_smile.gif

I use the silver ones that come in every letter of the alphabet - it was about $17.00 Canadian with tax. They are metal


They are perfect for cutting out fondant!
They sell different fonts at Flour Confections(Canada) - but i'm sure the states has online stores for less shipping. In plastic too.
But when using them - you should let the stencil sit in the fondant a little to dry to avoid stretching your letters.

If you just want a guidline to pipe on writing i've seen the message stencils at Michales & The bulk barn - you build your message with the letters - kind of like scrabble and stick it into the cake and you have a guideline!
