Does anyone know where to purchase the Linda McClure dvd where she uses the Cricut to cut fondant? I googled her and didn't really see a site that looked like it was her. Thanks!

Icer101, thanks. I googled that and found the dvd. Have you ever used the Cricut with fondant before?

i have her dvd.. she uses the cricut expression.. she uses gumpaste. i am not sure if you can use fondant. maybe too soft. i am watching the dvd over an over.. so when i get my cricut.. i will have the knowlege.. she is a really good teacher on this video.. she has a second one out now.. ready to release . i will get that one too.. you roll the gumpaste thin. like rose petals, etc. then let it set up some on the crisco greased mat.. then load it into your machine. you have to use the blue cutter(longer blade) for this project. the one that comes with the machine is not long enough . so get the blue cutter.. you have to order that too. once in a while i do see it at acmoore and michaels. i think most people have to order it.. if you have everything just will work for you. she tells you over and over in the dvd... this same thing. she is nice. hth

I just got mine in the mail yesterday and I only ordered it last Sunday I think! I was surprised and happy it came that quick! Now if I could just find the time to really sit down and play with it. . . I tried quickly but I didn't have it set right, then baby started to fuss. . . So I will later!

I don't have her second disc but I know in part 2 of her first disc she goes of SCAL a little bit. I have the SCAL program and it's pretty easy to use. I think if you have the basics down with how to use the cricut and gumpaste as well as how to use the SCAL program you'd be okay icon_biggrin.gif

I ordered mine yesterday and it was shipped out the same day. Can't wait to get it! Now I have to order the deep cut blade while I'm waiting for my cricut expression to arrive.

I have her second one as well as her first. She now has a third one out!
She goes into more detail about using SCAL and INKSCAPE and using those programs with the Cricut. She does a couple kids cakes.

Her third dvd will cover baking, leveling, icing cakes. Here is a copy of the email I recieved about it:

Linda's new DVD set "Start to Finish" is complete and ready to go. In this great 3-DVD set she takes you all the way from preparing your pans to carrying a finished cake out the door. She shares her cake, frosting, and fondant recipes and takes you through their preparation, and gives you great tips to get nice, level layers straight out of the oven. If you want to learn how to quickly trim your layers to get nice, straight sides (and eliminate that pesky "hourglass" dip) she has it here. Need a good, consistent recipe? Want an easy way to get your fondant on your tiers? Get "Start to Finish".

Whether you're an experienced cake decorator or just starting out making cakes for friends and family, "Start to Finish" has tips, techniques, and tricks that will make your work easier and your cakes even better. Linda has learned and developed these over many, many years of decorating cakes. She's a very busy decorator, the developer of the technique to use electronic paper cutters to cut gum paste, and a great teacher. You'll enjoy picking up ideas that make your work easier and better.
