I just received my new cricut cake... LOVE IT... I cut out a butterfly and I think the pressure was too high.. It left a cut mark on the mat.. Should I keep the pressure on med or low. The fondant was 1/8 inch thick... thanks therese
The same thing happened to me too. I think we need to reduce the pressure.

yes this happen to me too, i did lower the pressure and it happen again I hope someone else can help us.
conchita and onome, I was looking at your cakes they are beautiful.. nice work.. let's hope we get answer's soon...
I have the expression, not the cricut cake, but it does score the mat, I am pretty sure that is what it is supposed to do. Your mat will very very marked up. HTH
rltmeng, thanks for the reply.. I thought I was doing wrong... do you know how long the mat will last.. Is it ok to use if really scratched??? thanks therese
Hi Therese, I am not sure how long the mat will last, I remember other cc'ers talking about it in other forum posts, but I can't remember how long it lasts. You may want to try and do a search in the forums, but I know it can be tricky and time consuming to find the info you are looking for. Sorry I can't be of more help.
keep this in mind P2 S3
I just got mine this sunday for mother's day.... and after a lot of research... pressure 2 speed 3.. works like a charm and make sure u freeze ur paste.... it sayd 5 minutes... but I leave it 30 seconds and I have no problem with it....
I did notice some of the letters if they are too thin.... getting jagged edges but I will be receiving an email with the cricut gumpaste recipe (it's specifically made for cricut)
I use the cricut all the time for scrapbooking and now for cakes. The mat will get very marked up but that is normal and it will last for a long time. I've had my cricut for 2 years and am just now having to replace the mat. Not from cuts though. The edges are starting to bend a little and it takes a few tries to feed into the machine properly...don't know why.
Thanks for the answer. I will keep the pressure and speed in mind.
I keep my pressure low on my cricut cake, but it is normal for that mat to get marked up, especially using higher pressures, eventually you will need to replace it, but not anytime soon.
Ha! Glad i found this thread! I was cursing the Cricut people because it cut my mat 3 times. I will try the settings mentioned though and see if that lessens the problem. I'm having trouble with the more intricate decorations coming out shotty on gumpaste...maybe too thick? or too fast?
