I'm desperate. Has anyone gotten their machine and had their blade assembly look different than what is described in the manual? Mine does not seem to have the adjustment knob. I am so mad I could scream. I've called but they are of course closed until Mon. Even my husband who is pretty good at this stuff says the part is wrong.

Any suggestions.

I just got mine today and the housing on the blade isn't what is pictured either.

Interesting. What are your thoughts? I'm not a happy camper.

You should PM JenniferAtwood. She's very helpful and knowledgable about the cricut cake because she got one early on to test out.

I just opened my box and smiled when I saw my pretty new cake tool.

I watched the video (somewhat LOL) and then got out my box of fondant (Wilton) and rolled it out on the mat, didn't even wait for 15 minutes, but just put it in the machine and look what I was able to do. I'm so happy that I got this machine.

I know that Ill have to practice more, a lot more, but I can already see how wonderful it will be after a few months of practicing. I just think of the cake machines like I do for any other cake process. Everything takes time Fondant, took me like 15 cakes to get it right . After a year, Im still learning to pipe RI . And getting a smooth cake, about another year of doing that, so I dont care if it takes me a few months to get the machine to work like I want I think its worth the time invested to be able to offer something different to my friends / co-workers that get my cakes.

And Ill be saving money on cutters and stencils once I get SCAL, because Ill be able to make my own.

med speed and med presure

Looks so great. I agree with just practicing, just takes time.
