My son wants a spongebob cake for his birthday and I just noticed that circut makes some licensed character cartridges. Has anyone tried cutting those intricate designs with their circut? I don't want to buy it if I can't use it. I just got my circuit cake this week and haven't used it yet. Also, if I buy make the cut can I cut similar images? I just want to know my options, and with 4 kids I think I will be making lots of character cakes
I tried searching for these answers and nothing came up. Sorry if this has been asked already thumbs_up.gif

Yes you can, I just did my first try today. It took me like almost 2 hours to figure it out, the Cricut Cake is my first Cricut ever. I think Oscar the Grouch came out pretty good icon_biggrin.gif

You can cut anything you can get onto your computer with Make The Cut.

Jatis - could you please let me know what medium you're using there and what brand? I'm having difficulty getting a clean cut with my CC so I'm looking for any tips I can get. Thanks so much - your Oscar looks great!

Thank ladies icon_smile.gif

I used Wilton White Fondant except the the Black is Satin Ice. Im having better luck with Wilton, I dont have tylose but I order some already to see it I will have better luck with Satin Ice.

Designs like this are like puzzles, you need to color the fondant with all the colors you will need. I have 3 mats so that made it a little easier. The machine will let you choose the layers you want to cut separately. I didnt know how big it was going to be so I put like 2 color in one mat.

Here is how I been working with my fondant, Im not a profeccional like you guys, but hopefully my tips will help.

1. to roll the fondant on my counter not on the Cricut mat, Fondant has to be as thin as you can get it (I was able to see the lines thru)
2. put Crisco with a pastry brush on the mat and transfer the fondant
3. Cut the fondant to fit the mat area, other wise it will get stuck in the rollers, let it rest at leat 15 minutes
4. After that, load it to the CC and cut your design, Im using high speed and medium pressure
5. When you are done cutting let it rest again a few minutes and removed the excess and you are done icon_smile.gif

I havent try the frosting sheets, I didnt even open them. I want it to try the stuff I can afford or do my self. Sorry for any grammar, English is my second language.
