Our fab new Sugar Press are so easy to use, just place the word where you would like it on the board and gently but evenly press, lift off and fill in with either paint, dust or royal icing. The length of the word "Birthday" is approx 4 inches. They are made from a very durable 6mm food safe acrylic, the thickness also makes it very easy to grip when lifting back off your cake. Each letter has a two layers, a colour layer and a clear layer. The clear layer goes to the top so you always know which way is right side up, very handy when its late at night and you are crossed eyed from tiredness trying to decorate a cake. Happy caking folks.
