I tried using a Cricut machine today with fondant. I could never get it to work. The little wheels that are on the rollers kept making indentions in the fondant and the blade just tore up the fondant. We tried different pressure, speeds, and blade depth but nothing worked. How do you do it? Does anyone have step-by-step instructions and maybe photos? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I highly recommend you invest in the Linda McClure dvd's she has developed a tried and true method and explains every single step in great detail on them, totally worth the money in my book so I don't wreck an expensive piece of machinery.

Otherwise try reading through some of the other super long Cricut threads, some people have given hints and tips, here are a few:

linda mcclure shows this on her dvd.. she came up with this idea. she uses the cricut expression. she takes the rollers off by cutter them off.. she says it doesn,t hurt it when you want to use paper in it too.. use something to make your fondant more pliable. like mix some g/p with it.. or use g/p.. she makes her own g/p.. you have to let it set up a little(dry out) roll it very thin like for rose petals.. and you have to use the blue cutting blade.. not the one that comes with it.. trial and error helped her to come to where she is in making this work.. i haven,t done it yet. but i keep studying over the dvd. and taking notes. her cakes look really great... trial and error will get you there too. good luck...
