I keep watching CC'rs asking aboutthe cricut. Well I just ran a frosting sheet through my edible printer. I printed a paisley design on it.
I then left the back on the frosting sheet and laid it on my cricut board and loaded the paper... It cut out the letters perfectly wow. I let them set out to set up then seperated them. put them on my hannah montana cake.

Has your Hannah Montana cake shown up in the gallery yet? I'd love to see, but I can't find it in your photos?

Is the cake she uploaded into this thread not the Hannah Montana cake she is referring to? The letters "Katie" are paisley and the cake is a western Montana type cake......I thought this cake is the one she is referring to. Am I wrong here, TripleD?

yes that is the cake. it never showed up on the new cakes added. I do'nt know why so I attached it to this thread.
yeah, the letters are the paisley ones that say Katie. It worked so cool.

now I can make fancy letters and they are edible.

Thanks for the info, very interesting. I'm guessing you can change fonts and sizes etc.

Awesome! Looks like it did a very good job!
I really like your bullwhip type border...........what tip did you use to do that? Or is it fondant?

the border is fondant. I used a makin' polymer clay mold. I use ll kinds of stuff to make textures in fondant.

Oooh, I have not seen that particular mold in Makins or any other. Will have to look for it next time I am at the craft stores. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I have a cricut and love it.. I use it all the time for cake decorating. I am glad someone else has discovered it. I actually bought mine for cake decorating instead of scrapebooking

So let me get this straight. tripleD you rolled out a thin layer of fondant or sugar paste and then put it through the crucut machine to form the letters. Hope I've got it , had a large glass of wine with dinner and not so sure I'm seeing straight. If it that easy I'm getting that darn machine tomorrow. Thanks.
