How to Use Tappits and Other Letter Cutters
Roll out the fondant to a thickness of around 1/16th of an inch. Let the fondant sit and dry out for around 10 minutes.
Dust the cutter with a little cornstarch on a large brush. Tap out the excess.
Press the cutter into the fondant. Rub the cutter back and forth a few times on your mat or worktop. Pick up the cutter and the letter should still be inside. If it isn’t, the fondant is still too soft and sticky. Try adding a little Tylose powder, re-roll, and leave for another 10 minutes.
Rub the edges of the letter in the cutter with your finger or thumb to smooth the fondant.
