Just got the new Costco magazine and it's showing the Cricut Cake. While I personally ended up getting a more high end machine, I am kind of feeling bad for everyone that paid 339 + shipping when Costco has it for 299.99 - delivered!

On another note, every Tom, Dick & Harry and their female counterparts will be getting this machine. Time to brush up on my piping skills.

are you in the USA, I am in Canada and I was wondering what dept it would be in as I do not get a magazine, so I have to looked on the costco.ca site and it was not there, I looked on the costco.com site and the only one I found was for scrapbooking. I am new to all this is there a difference between the scarp booking one and the one everyone is talking about to use for cakes? please help me to know the diffence.

I don't think you get the extra frosting sheets or the Elegant cakes cartridge with the Costco deal though.

WTH?!?!?!?! Now I'm pissed. I knew the Cricut Cake would be cheaper soon, elsewhere. Thank goodness I didn't buy it yet but now I really need to try and sell my used 1 time, already modified Cricut Expression that I''m still make payments on. DARN IT!!! It's cheaper than what I paid for the Expression. That really bites!. I Just sent my Craigslist add out. Wish me luck.

Yeah, I think I'll just wait until the average cake mogul decides cake decorating is more than just slapping some gumpaste/fondant on the sides of a cake and sticks their cake cricut in a garage sale or classifieds!

Just a question, but who cares if other people use this machine? I've noticed other people on here, who have purchased this machine, complain about how so many other people will be able to decorate cakes. I don't get it????

Oh, I don't care if other people decorate cakes or not! I just think that with the popularity of the cake shows, people who haven't even touched a cake pan or whipped up some icing before will get the cake Cricut and think they can magically create cakes like Lindy Smith! You can bet that some will end up on Craigslist and in garage sales! I'm patient-I'll wait!

Not to stray to far from the discussion on cricut. But has anyone tried the Slice Machine? I just picked it up at Michael's today for 30% off and before I open the box (that then can not be returned) I would like to hear from anyone who has tried it. Thanks
