Has anyone used their Cricut Cake to actually cut out Sugar Cookies? If so, how did it work and what settings did you use? There may already be a thread, but I couldn't find it. Thanks
I was wondering that as well. This would be one of the MAIN reasons that I would purchase the Cricut Cake.
I have not had time to open mine and play with it yet, but the gal that was demonstrating at the store said you could do cookies, but they needed to be thin ( she said 2 nickles stacked on top of each other was the max depth). Anyone else ???
That's pretty thin for a cookie...
That's what I thought too...I make pretty thick, soft cookies...don't think I will use cricuit for cookies....she also mentioned cutting tortillas and something else I have forgotten, lol....
I dont have a cricut cake, but I use my regular cricut to cut templets for my sugar cookies, I just lay the templet on the cookie dough and cut it out with a very very very sharp knife!
I haven't tried cookie dough in my Cricut yet (still getting the hang of fondant and gumpaste), I will have to try this if I have time, I do agree that that is a REALLY thin cookie.
I was also wondering about cutting other things, I have heard that you can cut tortillas, I was wondering how you would stick those to the mat. Would shortening work? Has anyone tried this?
I used the Cricut to cut out these cookies http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1673053.html just last week. I loved it! I used the large Wilton rolling pin and the largest spacers (3/16" I think). They are a little thinner than usual but they still taste really good. I used the NFSC recipe on this site and Antonia74 Royal Icing recipe. Just make sure to freeze the mat once you have the dough rolled out and then get the Cricut all set up before taking it out. It cuts really well!
dean75 - so you rolled the cookie dough out thin and placed it on the cricut board and it cut the dough?

I actually rolled it out right on the mat and then froze it and it cut the dough perfectly!
That is amazing! I have enough problems with the gumpaste not tearing or dragging with the blade; wonder how the cookie dough would do. Do you brush shortening onto the mat before rolling out the dough?
Yeah, it is definitely a learning curve with the machine. I have had great success with Wilton's fondant, it cuts really nicely!
And yes, I put shortening on the mat, it helps it to come off once cut!
Do you use the blue blade as well? How thin do you roll out the dough? I am definately intrigued.
Holy cow!! That is absolutely amazing!!!!!
