Hi All!! AC Moore by me has the Orginal Circuit on sale for $99.00, I was wondering If it was worth it to buy? Can it be used for caking? I know others have used Expressions or some of the other more expensive ones. I really can't afford those right now ... If anyone has it or used it Please any advice would be Greatly appreciated.. Thanks!!
There are many threads about this question here on CC, as well as other places on the internet. Jennifer Atwood has done a great comparison of the two machines (regular paper Cricut vs the new Cake Cricut) on her blog. If you use the search on CC, you will have lots to read. YouTube also has lots to offer. Even the Cricut . com forums have discussions about this.
Short answer, yes you can use this machine. Many suggest the Deep Cut Blade.
Check out Linda McClure dvd, it has all the details one would need to make it work for gumpaste. Her website is also very informative...
I used the regular cricut today to cut modeling chocolate and gumpaste with the deep housing blade. Am waiting for my cricut cake and will use the original one to cut paper and stencils.
