I have been wanting to purchase the Cricut Expressions. Our local Wal Mart carries it. However, I went in the other day and they had a newer one, it is black. Does any one know if this is just a color change or is there something different about the machine itself? I could tell it is minus one cartiridge from the other box, but it is the same price. I even went to the Wal Mart web site and it is difficult to compare the two with the information provided. I have emailed Cricut, but who knows when and if I will get a response.

It's probably the same machine, just a different color. They do that with different packages occasionally.

I'd give the Cricut cake a tentative icon_smile.gif , because it works fine but I won't be using it a whole lot unless a bride specifically requests a design that I could use it for. Not a lot of brides are requesting things like that, so the cost vs. usefullness is questionable for me personally.

I just bought mine on Tuesday and am already addicted to it. I used the Wilton Gumaste mix in the can and made it Tues. night. I let it rest until Friday, rolled it out about the same thickness as I would when hand cutting anything else. Greased my mat with Crisco, rolled it out on to the mat, trimmed my edges and put it in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Then I went to practicing with the machine. I had the cut depth on 3 and the speed on 2. I made 2 inch designs that came out perfectly. I will definitely use mine, especially for letter's and sayings and scroll/border work on fondant. So I give my machine: icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif . Good luck caking!!!

I just got back from Michaels and one of the girls working there told me I could buy the design cartrage ($99) and with it I could draw my designs, scan into my computer and then print from cricut. Has anyone done this? I tried to find info online about this and can't. I really want to be able to print my own designs.

Thanks in advance for any help ...

PS - Got my cricut cake for Mother's day .. but it hasn't been shipped yet, so I got a nice card with a picture.

I found this through 1 of my Cricut Cake Yahoo groups. Thought I would share as the rose is very simple to do and looks very pretty. Hope it helps!

Just bought the Cricut Cake at Michael's - used a print off of the Wal-mart on line price of $290 and they took it. Can't wait to try it. Some questions - why put the gumpaste or fondant in the freezer and doesn't it get sticky/wet once it hits room tempature. Some utube videos show using it straight from the package. Also found software called Sure Cuts A Lot 2 and Make the Cut which looks great and you can download anything - and connect letters to print in one peice.
