icon_sad.gif I got the cake cricut for a gift from my husband and am having a hard time getting the fondant to cut smooth? Any ideas?? I also used the frosting sheets and had a horrible time with them, they were coming up off the sheet. Do I need to wait for the fondant to dry? How thin do I need to roll it?

After some experiementing I found that if I mix the fondant with tylose then roll it out as thin as a dime and let it dry overnight on the cutting sheet that it cut out just fine. As for the frosting sheets, they can be dry and brittle...I found that putting enough crisco on the cutting sheet and then smoothing the frosting sheet down onto the crisco helped to re-moisturize them and had less breaking. I prefer my own fondant to the sheets, not to mention that my own fondant/tylose mix is a lot less expensive to make and use. BUT the frosting sheets will be good for colors like red and navy blue..haven't seen black yet but I'm hopeful!<G> HTH. Cat
