Cut fondant letters to write "Happy Birthday" and other celebratory messages for your bakery's cakes with this Ateco 6949 1" tin alphabet cutter set. Made of tin, these durable cutters are built last and ensure the vowels will remain sturdy as long as the "Q", "Z," and other less common letters. This set includes each letter of the alphabet, all in uppercase letters for uniformity. For birthdays, anniversary dates, and more, pair this set with Ateco 7802 1 1/2" numbers cutter set (sold separately) for compatible letter and number sizes. Each cutter measures 1" wide at the broadest point, ensuring the letters are visible from a distance without dominating your baked good or restricting your message length. Thanks to each cutter's round top ledge, users can safely and comfortably press down on the cutters through thick layers of dough. Plus, the included storage container helps you keep all of your letters together and organized.

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    These are really nice to have for cutting out fondant letters to go on cakes. I did have some trouble with the letters sticking to the cutters, but found that using the back of a table knife to push the letter out worked pretty well.

    from Those Nut-Free Ladies Posted on

    Perfectly sized for cutting fondant letters for cakes. Makes customization that much quicker and cleaner. Although, I wish some letters were proportioned, detailed and consistent (Like C &S)

    from Rad creations Posted on

    These are great to have they come in handy I only wish they could be stainless! Don't leave them sitting in water too long cause they will tarnish.

    from Sally's Piece-a-Cake Posted on

    We use this alphabet set to cut out fondant letters for the tops of our cupcakes. They are the perfect size to cut one letter per cupcake and spell out a message to the happy recipient.

    I really love the new Ateco 1" alphabet cutter set. It makes writing on cakes a breeze! You can create so many different colors or stagger the letters to give cakes a special effect.

    from My Sweet Escape Posted on

    These work very well with fondant, but can be a bit wiggly. Other than that, they work very well and have a nice fun font.

    Posted on

    Very nice alphabet cutter set. They are the perfect size for cutting letters out for cakes and cookies. The fact that they all fit in a small case makes them perfect.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    Perfect size for fondant letters on top of a cake

    This is a nice set of cutters. They cut well, and the shapes of the letters are normal. They are very small. I tend to forget how small an inch really is.

    Posted on

    I received my ateco alphabet cutter set and tried to use it to cut fondant and it was not as easy as i assumed it to be. I will practice more.

    Posted on

    The letters aren't exactly appealing. They look childish and don't have any elegance to the font. Not too happy with this and don't really ever use them.

    Alphabet cutter set

    When I bought this I was not expecting to be using it all that much but surprisingly, it comes in handy quite often. We used this to help our kids learn to spell and since they get to eat the word after they make it, they love it! Highly recommend!

    from The Pie Kitchen Posted on

    We like to do something fun for our customers on their birthdays. So we use these to put their name or happy birthday on their plate. Add a candle and you have a happy customer with a smile on their face! These have lasted great!!

    from BG's Posted on

    Very cute cookie cutters. Kids and moms alike will love them. You can even use them at home to practice the alphabet with a young child in a fun way.

    Excellent cutters! Sharp edges produce clean cuts each and every time!! High quality and built to last! Worth the investment!! Great for cookies and cakes! Fantastic for birthday treats!!

    I love these cutters, they work well with chocolate and fondant for lettering on cakes and cupcakes...they are big enough that the fondant doesn't stretch when you poke it out, and it doesn't stick to the letters either. Also, they are sturdy, so when I accidentally dropped one it did not lose its form or change its shape...good stuff!

    This is a well priced product, that is packed nicely, easy to clean and store, this product exceeded my expectations and is a great performer.
