Ateco 6949 Details

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.

Bringing you innovation and quality for over 100 years, Ateco, an August Thomsen brand, has been internationally known in the industry for creating baking tools of superior craftsmanship and design. By continually improving on tools, materials, and packaging, Ateco is dedicated to providing professional bakers with the kitchen essentials they need to succeed in an ever-evolving industry!

Used this mold to make a chocolate letter for our cakepop business. Worked perfectly and the customer was happy with the personalization. Was able to clean it easily. Great purchase.

I use these for cheese for our cold cut platters, Adds a nice little touch to a catering order that personalizes the order for the event

George L. from Fresco on 06/10/2019

My daughter mostly use them for kinda indenting letters on fondant. No signs of tarnishing or rusting. I wash by hands with a clean tooth brush. They fit perfectly right back into the small container.

Angela P. on 02/04/2019

These worked great. The size was perfect for lettering on birthday cakes. The letters came out crisp and the cutters are sharp. Great quality item.

Tianne B. from Trayvax on 03/28/2018

So many uses for these cutters works great with cookie dough, fondant,gum paste, pie dough and salt dough. Releases easily and cleans up great, and the tin is perfect for storing the cutters neatly and in one place.

Amber L. from Sugar Lane Bakery on 12/29/2017

This makes fondant lettering so easy, plus have used with a good sugar cookie recipe to make clean letters. Highly recommend this set and the price is better than I have found locally.

Carla H. from Grandma's Pantry Incorporated on 08/13/2017

Lalit P. from Foxland Market on 08/12/2017

These work pretty good for cutting out letters from fondant. Some of the letters are trickier to get out then others but you would probably have the problem with any letter cutter.

Angela P. from Coco & Mini's LLC on 07/22/2017

this ateco alphabet cutter set is really great! The letters are the perfect size for fondant cakes they are strong and made of good quality

Yoel R. from Sweetart on 06/23/2017

Perfect set. Each letter is true to shape with a strong sharp edge. I was able to cut all pastry nice and clean. I like how they all store nicely together. No need for lost letters.

Stacy M. on 05/10/2017

Ideal to write names on beautiful birthday cakes or cupcakes. Easy to use. I mostly write names with colorful fondants. Rounded top ledge gives you comfort to use

Cengizhan K. on 03/03/2017

These alphabet cookie cutters are a must with kids in the house. They are always a hit for birthdays and holidays! Affordable and a great brand.

H T. on 12/09/2016

letters are a must have for any decorator, professional and home. These are quality ones, as usual with Ateco. The tin is handy to keep them altogether too.

Ateco 6949 26-Piece 1" Tin Alphabet Cutter Set (August Thomsen) #1446949 my niece is just starting to learn to talk i think this is just in time to start her on her way

Juanell P. from Powerquee Media on 09/04/2016

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.

Kerri R. on 08/22/2016

These alphabet and numbers are perfect for fondant when you need to spell out something for a cake or anything. They all fit in the convenient tin and I highly recommend them to have on hand for any occasion,

Erica D. from Small And Simple Confections on 08/10/2016

A very durable and clean cutting alphabet set that works wonderfully for my fondant projects! Very good price and excellent delivery time when I needed them very fast!

Steve H. on 07/06/2016

These Ateco 6949 26-Piece 1" Tin Alphabet Cutter Set (August Thomsen) are small they didn't work well with cookies dough. The price is worth it.

Charlene H. from T & C Catering Services on 06/21/2016

We use these alphabet cutters for many different jobs like on Fondant or to engrave our fruit filled empanadas to let the client know what kind of fruit jam it's filled with.

Sandra G. from Gonzalez on 06/15/2016

I really love Ateco for ALL of my cutters. These are awesome quality alphabet cutters! They hold up beautifully and create great little letters for my cakes.
