I love using the curlz Tappits to cut my letters out. But, they only come in one size. Does anyone know of a company that makes cute letters in different sizes. When asked for a monogram, the middle letter needs to be larger. Took me forever to handcut 3 letters this week. Have the cricut cake, but do not really like it. I make mmf, and just doesn't work well with that. And, just can't afford all the cartridges for dif't fonts. Anyway, enough rambling... Just wondering if anyone knows of a good solution to this problem?

Before I got my cricut I would print out letters in the desired font place the sheet over fondant and cut out with a sharp xacto knife. Don't cut the letters out before placing on fondant.

The cricut is great for cutting out monograms or anything. Roll the fondant on to greased mat and either freeze it for about 15 minutes (have all the machine setting together before removing) or let the fondant air dry on mat for about 1/2 or so then cut it out. Let it dry on the mat for a little while so it is easier to remove. I keep some Wilton's box fondant just for cutting out stuff with the cricut because it's stiffer and cheaper. Also Joann's had the cake cartridges on sale for $29.

Same problem here! I have purchased lots of different letter/number cutters but I still sometimes have to do like cakelady2266 and print the font and size I need in word and start cutting with an exacto knife.
