Hey guys! There are tons of posts talking about the Cricut. I just received my in the mail yesterday and I'm super excited to use it to cut fondant. icon_biggrin.gif I was hoping that someone could give me some step by steps on how to do it? There are so many posts that all I can find are bits and pieces here and there. I know that there's a great DVD out that shows you how to do this, but after buying my Cricut and some cartridges, I'm BROKE. icon_sad.gif Here's what I've learned so far:
Use the deep cut blade
Mix fondant with tylose
Cover mat with parchment/wax paper and then cover paper with Crisco

Here's a question...how long do u have to let the fondant sit before you cut into it? How hard does it need to be?

Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated since I REALLY don't have the money to buy a DVD.
Thanks so much!

Oh! One more thing. How thin do you roll out the fondant?

I just got one as a Christmas gift also. I read and followed several posts about tips and tricks, but was very frustrated with the results (ended up getting fondant jammed into the metal rollers ugh!) I think I need a LOT more practice. I am always looking for more advice also.
