If you have a cricut cake and have to do a review which one would you choose by your experience with the machine?
I would said:
but i havent get the hang of it, and i still need to get the gumpaste right every time but the times that i have done it right my cuts look pretty amazing, so once i really master i wont have any complaints. I hope.
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 , 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.
Still waiting for my machine to be shipped! But I hope its a:
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: . Good luck caking!!!
it took me some time to get the hang of it i almost sent it back but after some practice i would give it here is a pic of a cake i just did with it.
Very nicely done! Love the design!
I love it! I made the crowns for the cupcakes with my cc. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1662075
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! www.mulberryvillagestamps.typepad.com
Very cool! Thanks for the link momto3frogsand1princess
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.
