I purchased a Cricut Expression about 2 years ago, and now I see that they have come out with a Cricut that can make cake designs. I was wondering if I could use my Cricut to do the same things that the new Cricut cake machine does. Does anyone know if that works and what the differences are in machines? icon_smile.gif

yes you can! I have used my cricut to cut out fondant/gumtex mix. My first one I made is the brown and green apple cake in my photos which i used the cricut to make the entire cake. You need to slide over the rubber rollers, remove stickiness from a mat and I use the deep cut blade. It works best with gumpaste or fondant/gumtex that has been rolled out, better with pasta roller, then places in a plastic bag so it doesn't dry out..then cut the next day...you'll want extra incase you mess up. There's lots of form posts already comparing the 2 machines.

Thank you for your help! I saw your cake, and it is wonderful.

FYI...easy way to remove the sticky from the mat is to rub with 90 proof alcohol (liquor). Wipes right off with no scrubbing or residue.
