I am really debating buying the expression or the cake. I would like to just get the cake if I can cut cupcake wrappers and other things on it too. I would use a different blade and mat. But I also think the cake would be better because then I don't have to worry quite as much on getting the fondant/gumpaste really thin through a pasta machine that I don't have. I would just like to be able to use my rolling pin at 1/16 or so. Any help in deciding would be great, or knows it it cuts paper well.
I was debating the same thing but have decided to go with the Cake. Check out this site cuttingedgecakeart.com/blog.php for a comparison of the two. The deep housing blade fits into the cake machine.
I have the Cricut Expressions machine...anyone know if I can just get the cake mat and still use my machine or am I going to have to get the Cake machine too!??

I have been messaging with Jennifer and I sent her a svg file of a cupcake wrapper to cut and she is going to try it and let me know. I will post what I find out. I think I am leaning to getting the cake just seems better in the long run even though it might cost more I think it is worth it, and it is food safe.
I have not used my Expressions machine much, so I am going to try it!
If not I have someone who is interested in it, then I will sell it to her, and buy the Cricut Cake!!
I had a message from Jennifer this morning and she said it worked!! The results of this and other trials will be up tonight she thought. I am excited to read about it!!
I am so excited I preordered my Cricut cake last night for a special price of $294.00!
Where did you order from for that price if you don't mind sharing the info.... That is a great price!
I really want a cake cricut but have a hard tim epaying $400 for it. If I could get it for $280, I would do it. Could please let us me know where you ordered it from?
cutncrop . com you can pre order and get an extra 50 dollars off.
That's where I'm getting mine too. They are local so I cn pick it up when they arrive
ah i have to wait for mine to ship. Lucky......
Is there a coupon code? I just tried to order it but it gave me a total of $344, no $50 off.
Nevermind, I googled it and to get the $50 discount, you need to enter "CAKE" in the coupon code.
can u use any cartridge or just the cake specific ones ,,, sorry am new to cricut
you can use them all!!!!!!!!
Although you can use all the carts, some of the designs do not work. For example, tried to use the chick off of the Easter cart. The body cut fine, but the hair thin legs ripped off. The cake cart were made to use with icing.
Hi Jennifer - so if I'm understanding correctly, the deep cut housing is the alternate housing that fits into the CC? And this used in the CC along with a regular sticky mat would allow one to use the CC as a regular expression?
I dont have my cricut cake yet, i just placed an order tongiht. But I would like to cut a bunch of one image for example like 20 hearts, is there a way i can say...print 20 of these or do i have to have 20 hearts on my software that I am using? also what is better SCAL or MTC? I read MTC is better...any info on this also?
