I have a Cricut Expression and have seen hints that I might be able to cut fondant with it. Any help would be appreciated -

Do a search for cricut and you will get more info then you know what to do with.

I assume you are using the Expression machine and not the new Cricut for Cake Decorating.

Cutting fondant can be messy. I believe it is better to cut a mix of 1/2 fondant to 1/2 sugarpaste or one tesp of tylose to one pound of fondant. Turn sticky mat over and lightly grease it. Replace your regular cutting blade with a longer one. Roll fondant thinly and place it on you greased mat. Then run it through.

Good luck.
