Ok - so I've used a Cricut for scrapbooking and love the idea of it for the cakes!

However - do you stick the fondant to the sticky mat that comes with the Cricut? Or is there a special mat I should buy?

I know I have to get the deep cut blade just wondering what else I should get.

Thank you!

If you go to Youtube and put in Cricut, you will find demo's on how to use it.

I have Linda's first DVD and highly recommend it. I just ordered the new damask one, too, and can't wait to get it. I have a Silhouette - not a Cricut - and am able to use Linda's methods and techniques.

Thank you all!

I've tried a few times to do a search on this site for Cricut but kept getting error messages.

Will check out Linda's videos & youtube!

You can use your regular mats. You just need to take the sticky off. The best way I have found is by using goo-b-gon (spell) you can find it at most craft stores or at Lowes.

rubbing alcohol works to get the sticky stuff off of the mat. Then wash REALLY well with hot soapy water.

Leah said to just put wax paper on top. Some others did the same thing
