I almost got one but I have pretty much decided not too. There seems to be lots of trouble getting it to work right. What I do not like is your fondant cutout have to be paper thin. It would be nice if you had the option to cut them thicker. For instance if you were cutting out a baby buggy and you wanted to dry it as use it as a topper.

Yeah I don't really have the money right now, and so far I've been doing okay just decorating how I'm already doing it.

fondant only needs to be about a nickel's width thin. i think gumpaste needs to be a bit thinner though. it does take some patience.

I decided not to get one yet either. I was going to, but realized that it is too soon for me as my cake decorating expertise level is beginner. If I got it right now it would just collect dust while I still try to learn how to ice a cake, pipe something more than course 1 Wilton techniques (which I still need to practice to get even good looking). Then there is gumpaste flowers that I want to learn, using fondant, and etc.

To me Cricut cake decorating is advanced and I'm still a rank beginner, which is a little below beginner. icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif At least the cakes are tasting good! thumbs_up.gif
