very exciting.

Does the cake blade housing fit the expression? Would be nice if they sold it seperately as well icon_smile.gif

No, the cake blade housing does not fit the Expression. But the Expression Housing fits on the Cake.

The black and white cake pattern did not come from a cartridge. I scanned a scroll into Adobe Illustrator, made a few changes, then downloaded into SCAL to cut.
When I did a pattern very similar to this by hand, I traced with parchment paper the scroll with a non toxic graphite pencil. Then placed the parchment on the cake and gently retraced. Then I painted (have done both) with 1. black gel food coloring or 2 a thined down buttercream that was piped then smoothed.
