I'VE SEEN SEVERAL CAKES THAT HAVE USED THE CRICUT CUTTERS AND I'M CURIOUS AS TO HOE THEY WORK. IS IT FONDANT SHEETS WITH CUT OUTS, OR EDIBLE PAPER? I'M INTERESTED IN PURCHASING ONE, BUT CAN'T FIND MUCH INFO, MAYBE YOU GUYS CAN HELP icon_lol.gif i THINK IT WOULD BE SUCH A TIME SAVER icon_rolleyes.gif

Did you do a search on here? Because there are dozens of threads and hundreds and hundreds of replies.

Ditto on the above post. If you can't get the search to work on here, you can google it and put cakecentral after it, and it will bring up the 100's of posts from here.

I am not sure if you know it, but if you type in all capitols, it means you are yelling when you are on the computer. thumbs_up.gif

MY BAD ABOUT THE CAPS, ITS A HABIT. I'M DYSLEXIC AND FOR SOME REASON I CAN CATCH THE BOO BOOS A LITTLE EASIER. SORRY ABOUT THE TONE OF VOICE I PROJECTED. It just takes a little longer for me to type in lower case, because the letter forms all run together and the similarities are hard to differintiaet.

No worries! (just didn't know if you knew that "nettiquette" or not!) My son in law is also dyslexic - I know things are hard for him sometimes too.

Even though I'm an educational therapist for this, I still make mistakes. my daughtet is as well. Using the Orton Gillingham methods, she has gained 3 years of reading in less than one year. These kids are awesome to work with icon_lol.gif Thanks again for the nettiquette advice, i just didn;t think about it that way.

I use the small cricut. I love this thing. I roll out fondant on the mat the day before I need it and store it in a big zipper bag. When I'm ready for it, it has set perfectly. My blade doesn't even get clogged this way. This will be the best purchase you will make. I am happy with the small one for now because I am a hobby baker but I have a feeling I will get the cake one when it is available.

Do you have the one specifially for cakes or did you modify the Expressions machine like I read on another thread/discussion? I do a lot of cut work and this would be a fabulous investment for me!!!

The cake cricut wont be released until mid may sometime. Everything is very under wraps right now.... you know.... marketing hype... building suspense....

I just have the original cricut 6" machine. A friend of mine bought it when they first came out 4 or so years ago. She recently bought the expression and gave her old one to me. I just did the same small modifications that you would do on the expression and it works beautifully.
