Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

It is a little bit tricky to work with, but wit practice and use it gets easier.
Mashelle N. Stevens
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
So difficult to cut your fondant out without the other letters getting in the way.

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.

My Upper and Lower case FMM Funky Alphabet Tappit cutters arrived today, and I couldn't wait to try them out. I have a Sweet 16 cake that I'm working on, so I thought that this would be a great opportunity to use them. At first I was a bit hesitant as I've read several reviews about them sticking to the cutters, but I experience no such sign of that. I'd also watched a couple of YouTube videos and had looked for tips 'n tricks. I used a Wilton Fondant mat lightly coated with a thin spray of Canola oil (the same thing I always use for my fondant because it never sticks or never looks powdery). I rolled my gum paste very thin, as the package insert suggest. A couple of places I had read to let the gum paste sit a few minutes, but I was too impatient and went straight to cutting! I usually roll once, quite flat, then flip over the flattened gumpaste so that the smoothest surface will be next to the cookie cutters. This also transfers a little of the spray oil to the top and ensures that my rolling pin or cutter won't stick to the letters. I used my pizza cutter to cut strips of gum paste slightly wider than the height of the tallest letters, then I just pressed them down, paying careful attention to press also on any parts of the letters that were protruding off of the cutter unit. Then I just lifted and the little letters stayed put but thoroughly cut. I went ahead and cut out "BREANNA" in both Upper and Lower case so I could see which I'd prefer after I was finished. Then I carefully lifted the gum paste off and away from each of the letter. Be careful though, they're very thin! I used to corner of my buttercream spatula to carefully lift them and pull out their centers and place them on another flat surface to dry. I can't wait to add them to the cake tomorrow night when I'm placing the finishing touches!

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!

The product that arrived was the exact one shown in the picture. At first I was a bit leery ordering this based on the negative review and my own independent research on Youtube which showed that the letters are permanently attached to several ruler-shaped plastic. However when I received it, I realized that the configuration didn't make it any more difficult to use. As a matter of fact, having a few long flat pieces made storage easier with less pieces to lose. The plastic it's made out of is very sturdy and since there are no pieces to rust or break or lose, I think this will outlast my interest in fondant cake-making :)

On a sidenote, it doesn't work at all with my home-made marshmallow fondant. I used it on gumpaste and that a was a breeze! I haven't tried it on store-bought fondant to see if that works too.

I'm very pleased with this purchase.
