Customer Questions & Answers

The fondant has to rolled VERY thin or the cutters won't cut through completely.
Paula H.
The trick is rolling out the fondant or gum paste really thin and allow it to dry out a little before stamping the letters into it.
Frankie Stallard
Had I known in advance that this would happen, I wouldn't have ordered the uppercase.

I am glad I purchased these letters. After reading some poor reviews I was a little worried about buying but I couldn't think of another way to make letters short of buying a cricut cake.

Pros
- in the end the letters turn out cute and they give the cake a clean and professional look (I have always piped letters in the past and it just doesn't looked as good)
- cheap

Cons
- The letters do not come apart. They are strapped vertically together on ruler looking things in sets of 5.
- You have to roll the fondant/gum paste to to the perfect thickness. If you roll it too thin you lose some of the detail. If you roll it too thick you end up having to cut it out or if you push down harder you get an imprint of the ruler thing holding it together.

Tips for using. Since this took me forever to figure out I'll share what finally worked for me. I worked with Marshmallow fondant. I added some gum tex and let the fondant sit for a while. When it was really firm I kneaded it using a little shortening until it was workable and rolled it out. The first couple of letters i pulled out came out all stretched but if you put them back into shape on some waxed paper they harden the way they should and still look great. Another option is after rolling out the fondant wait for it to harden a little and then try cutting. If you have enough of the tex in it they pull out nicely without breaking.

In short these letters are kind of a pain but for as inexpensive as they are they are totally worth it.

Let me start by saying that I have never ever written a review for any product but I had to share my experience with the Tappit Funky Letters. I was hesitant to buy them because of all the reviews complaining about how frustrating it is to work with them and how the letters don't fall out. I wanted to make a baby shower cake and I love the look of the letters and I decided to try for myself in hopes I would have better luck. I'm by no means a cake professional, just a busy mom of 2 who likes to decorate cakes for her friends. While I was waiting for the letters to arrive I decided to check the internet to see if I could find any tips on how to successfully use the set and I found this video which I suggest you watch if you want to be able to use the letter frustration free:

[...]

I posted pictures of the letters on my cake (is the baby shower one that has the words "Oh Boy"). I used Satin Ice Dark Chocolate Fondant rolled very thin and followed the instructions on the video above and what you see on the cake is what I got on my FIRST TRY: no broken letters, no stuck letters, no shaggy borders, just a lot of fun to work with and beautiful results! The only tip I have is that you should let the letters dry a few minutes before handling them; I tried putting them on the cake as they came out of the cutter but they were too flimsy and made it very hard to handle them. Once they were a bit dry they were very easy to put on without messing them up =D

I hope you find this review helpful and that you can enjoy working with the letters!

I just got this in the mail today. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get the item because of the lack of information on amazon (no size, how thick letters are, etc). I took a chance and ended up purchasing it because of the "funky" lettering. They are about 1.5 inches in height and the thickness of the letters are a little smaller than 1/4 inch. The instructions say that it's best to use flower floral paste. I wonder how different that is from fondant, but I guess I'll find out tonight.

I used rolled fondant paste and the letters came out beautifully after some practice. You need to roll the fondant pretty thin and I think the secret is to use lots of cornflour to dust the surface. That way the fondant does not stick to the plastic letters. I also learned to dip the plastic letters into a pile of cornflour each time I cut a letter. I also used the tip of a thin paint brush to nudge out any letters that needed a little help. I did this by pushing gently from the back of the letter so it fell out onto the table. After letting the letters dry they can be painted. I now have a stack of ready prepared letters in a plastic box ready for the next celebration! They will keep for a long time just like gum paste flowers. Next time I will try gum paste instead of fondant because it's stronger. It's important to cut the letters according to the instructions - that is, you cut thin strips of fondant the width of a letter and place the plastic letters horizontally across the strip (making the shape of a cross). That way you can cut an individual letter without making a mess.

This letter and number cutter has been such a life saver since I don't have confidence in manually writing on my cakes. I use homemade marshmallow fondant with some tylose powder added to it and that works great with this cutter. I waited to write this review after I've used the cutters a few times. The easiest way it has worked for me is when I roll the fondant as thin as I can and I wait a minute or two before cutting the letters. Also, after cutting the letters, I again wait a minute or two before pulling out the letters. Overall, I love this cutter and would definitely recommend it anyone hoping to improve the look of their cakes :)
