Has anyone used the cricut machine for cutting letters out of fondant or gumpaste?

Im looking at getting one but want to make sure it actually will work before purchasing.

Cutting numbers and letters by hand that are uniform takes wayyyyy to much time lol

THanks to anyone that can help =]

There are lots of posts here on the cricut , yes it does letters and numbers from 1 inch - 24 inches I believe. I just got mine and haven't had much play time but it does it all. The main thing is getting the fondant or gumpaste just so that's the tricky part.

I started with the regular personal cricut then couldn't decide to get the expression or the cake, I went with the cake and I think it's a better choice if your going to use it mostly for caking.

now do you have to use that icing paper or can you just use rolled out fondant or gumpaste.

I've used both , gumpaste works best for me because it dries quicker.

I just got my cricut cake a few days ago and it cuts letters and numbers wonderfully. I was reading thru the booklet and learned that you can use any cartridge cricut makes in the cricut cake. I think that alone makes it worth the money. With all the cartridges that are out the possibilities are endless. Whoever thought of this is a genius! LOL
