I just bought a cricut machine and have read that it will cut gum paste.. Will it cut the regular gum paste bought at the store or do I need to make homemade? How do I use my mat to cut it since it's sticky. Is there a way to remove the sticky part or do I just use the other side? Can someone please let me know. Also I have read that a lot of people say you use the blue deep cut housing blade. I have the smaller cricut will that still have the blue deeper housing blade? and how much does that run? Please let me know the answers to these questions. I want to make a cake for my husband with hunting silhouettes and would like to use my cricut to cut them.

Go to ebay you can get the deep housing with blade for about 14 bucks. In walmart they are 30. Also type in Read before you buy: Cricut cake vs Cricut expression. its about 5.95 it will show how to prep your machine and what to set your machine on for gumpaste etc....
