I decorate cakes professionally and I needed letter cutters that were simple and not scroll/italic. I have used these multiple times since I received them. I do not have a problem with them and find them easy to use. If you haven not used Tappit style letters, then here are a few tips that you have to know before using them:

1. The fondant/gum paste has to be VERY thin. So think that you should be able to see the words of a printed page through the fondant when the fondant is placed on top of the page. Trust me, I was skeptical, but this is very important.

2. The letter cutters are connected on a plastic strip. To use, cut strips of fondant approximately the width of the letters. The fondant strip should be placed vertically and the letter cutter will be perpendicular to the fondant. Press down on the cutter. I slide the cutter back and forth to be sure I have a good cut.

3. Tap the end of the cutter on the table to release the letter from the cutter. This really works.

4. Let the letters dry for a few minutes before trying to place them on the cake. They will be easier to handle and you won't have to worry about the letters changing shapes.

These are a great size and I have no problems working with them!

These are difficult to use if you don't know what you're doing! Go to YouTube and search for videos on how to use Tappit Cutters before using them or you will be frustrated.

If you don't want to search for a video, this is how I used them without my letters breaking or stretching:

You will want to grease the cutters with vegetable shortening when using them!

1. Roll your fondant quite thin and cut in strips wide enough for the letters. You will know what I mean when you get your cutters in the mail.
2. Let your fondant dry out! Forget everything you know about not letting the fondant dry when using these cutters! It MUST be dry or they won't work!
3. When your fondant is dry but still soft enough to cut through with your cutters, press the cutters into your fondant and swirl the cutter around on your work surface without picking it up. This will ensure you get clean cuts and no jagged edges hanging off the letters.
4. Literally TAP the letters out of the cutter onto your work surface. You may have to give it a hard tap but not so hard as to break your cutter!
5. Let the letters completely dry after they come out of the cutter!!! Another 20-30 minutes.
6. Pick up using a small pallet knife or spatula. Don't squeeze them!
7. Apply to the cake with piping gel, water, or vodka brushed on the back of the letters with a paint brush.

It is a good idea to make more letters than you need just in case you end up breaking them when handling.

These were difficult to use but I got the hang of it after a while. You need to roll the fondant pretty thin and have it be nearly dry before starting. I wasn't able to tap the letters out like instructed - had to use a pin to get them out. A few letters I messed up and had to repeat. But in the end, they looked cool.

These were useless for the project I bought them for. I will keep them in hopes they work for something else. I ended up free-handing with my trusty exacto.
1. Nowhere in the description is the actual size mentioned; I scoured all the reviews for an estimate (thank you reviewers). But even so, they were too small. The small letter (a, e, c) are 3/16". The larger ones (p, t, f) are 1/2 or 9/16".
2. The interior space of the cutters is also smaller (less wide) than represented in the picture, i.e., the result is not as "block letter-y". So the overall appearance is thin, does not stand out on a cake.
3. The construction of the cutters is such that one cannot push or pick out the letter if they stick. The plastic is thick and obstructive. If you roll the material out very thin, brush with cornstarch, let dry, you will prob be ok, but by that time the letters LOOK dry, and thin, and cracky. Again, not vibrant, does not stand out.
fyi - I tried on 100% fondant, fondant/gum paste mix, fondant/modeling chocolate mix. The one star is because they are affordable, arrived on time, and do not look cheap like they will break. Perhaps I will get my method down and become a bigger fan.

Look at this you Tube video. It will give you a foolproof method for using these letters. So helpful.

Also, this video from Global Sugar Art is super great. Remember, these are called Tappit because you tap the 'stick' of images on the counter to get the image to come out of the form. /www.youtube.com/watch?v=hERhCed6dWo
Use lots of cornstarch. The first video puts fondant on the letter and then goes over it with a rolling pin to make sure it goes all the way through. The GSA video just puts the plastic down on the fondant and rubs it around the counter, pressing down to make sure it goes through. In any case, you are tapping the plastic on the counter afterward to get the letter, etc. out. If you use enough cornstarch, you will be successful.

I love Tappits! They can be difficult to use if you've never used them before because the individual letters are quite small and thin. I roll out my gumpaste very thin, rub the surface with a touch of a 50/50 mix of powdered sugar and cornstarch, then let it sit for a few minutes to "surface dry" before cutting. If I don't do this, it's difficult to "tap it" out of the cutter. My writing with frosting is pretty awful so these help me to not ruin my cakes by writing on them free hand!
