Can you cut out fondant with any of the new fangled die cutting machines like the cricuit or the sizzix machine at costco? I don't know if any of these can feed in fondant.....sounds like a great idea! anyone have any ideas?

I have heard that you can but have not tried it yet. My Sizzix just arrived 2 days ago, so I haven't had a chance to try it. My thought, however, when looking at the dies themselves, I wonder if the fondant would get into the foamy part of the die and contaminate it? I was thinking if any bits from the fondant got in there, it would be really tough to get them out.

I cut a piece of fun foam yesterday and pieces of the black foam part of the die we left stuck around the cut out shape. That leads me to believe that the fondant would then not be safe to eat either.

I'm interested to hear of other people's experiences with the Sizzix.

I would think the Cricut would be a better choice as it uses a blade (I believe) and you could have a blade that you use just for the fondant.
