Hi..just bought a pasta roller from bed,bath, & beyond.
It cost $35 & is only about 6 inches wide. Is this the right size for the cricut cake? In order to get the frosting sheets in there I would have to cut them? does this seem right? Thanks for your help-Gina

looking for a roller for this myself. But The fosting sheets don't have to go through your roller they are ready to cut. Just your gumpaste or fondant to make it thin enough to place on mat to cut

...I totally forgot that the sheets were already to size. In the future,
I'm gonna make my gumpaste & was a little confused if this would be the right size? Anyone know a good gumpaste recipe for the machine?
I'm suppose to get my cricket cake today & I'm trying to get prepared.
Thanks so much for your help

Jennifer Atwood has a blog called Cutting Edge Cake Art and when you sign up for her blog they send you a gum paste recipe that they use in their bakery for the Cricut Cake. Also, cricut dot com messageboard has posted Carrie's Cakes recipe in the Cricut Cake forum. She is another professional using the Cake in her bakery. HTH.
