I bought this and hate it, I have done everything, tried everything and nothing makes this work. Anyone have any experience or words of wisdom before I return it? icon_sad.gif

Nothing except I'm sorry for you! I don't have one...but I will say there are other posts floating around here very similar to yours!

All I can tell you is that it requires alot of patience. Have you read the threats on Cricut? Maybe that can help you out some.

Good luck. Hope it works out for you.

It seems most people find they need to make it a full time job to figure it out.

Hi Judyi! There are at least 400 threads on here about the cricut cake, here is one that should keep you busy for awhile.

I LOVE mine!!! Takes practice! But so does everything that is worth doing, I guess!

hi Judyi I'm sorry u are having a hard time with cricut, I tried mine today and it actually worked, what i did was use wilton fondant (about a bar soap size of it) add tylose (1 teaspoon) and 1 spoon of gum paste mix (also from wilton)mix it well, put some crisco on the mat with a pastry brush, roll the fondant in the cricut mat as thin as u can (you could almost see the line trough it) and let air dry for about 10 min. set cricut on a speed of three and pressure of 2. hope this helps good luck

I got mine about a month ago and works. It takes lots of practice though. My daughter and I use it every weekend and have lots of fun. I just saw the Cricut cake machine is on sale at Michaels at $299.99. For those who want one, it is a good time to buy.
