Are there any topics on this already?? I did a quick search and didnt see anything! I'm thinking about ordering them on HSN, but haven't really heard anything about them...

Apparently Cricut has teamed up with Martha Stewart, and not only will there be Martha Stewart cake cartridges, but also an all white Martha Stewart Cricut Cake Machine. It is making its debut on HSN Monday at midnight.(you know, Sunday into Monday when they launch their Special for the day). I have the red Cricut Cake, and boy will I be mad if they have made changes already! I also think it may be a way to get more people interested in the Cake machine. Personally, I am NOT a fan of Martha Stewart, so I probably would not have ordered the red machine if her name was attached to it. Can I go throw up now?

I haven't seen anything on CC about it, yet. But there is already a blog about it with a few examples:

I emailed PC re this new machine Friday. I was told: The machine is the same, just different color. All three carts are available independent of the machine. HSN has an exclusive for the machines and carts, for some period of time. (The exclusive didn't last too long for the original.)

I don't want to buy too many carts, as I have SCAL2 to use, but these look like they could have some cool designs.

Check out this website: You can see what designs are on the different cartridges. Nothing like a really good preview of coming attractions icon_lol.gif

This website is chock full of all kinds of info and you can subscribe to her site and get email updates. One of my favorite sites.

Hope that helps icon_smile.gif

They do look like nice designs. I'm still working through perfecting the carts I have now. I also got the cupcake wrappers cart. Really really cute designs, and if you figure out how much you are saving by making your own wrappers, its a definite win win. I'm glad that they didn't make any changes to the machine. I would have been really annoyed.

Dang. So far I've refused to be tempted by the Cricut Cake, but that Elegant Cake Art may make me change my mind... icon_confused.gif

I have the Cricut Cake and the Expressions (and the Silhouette... seriously, I have a problem!!). I did see the white MS Cricut Cake, but obviously don't need that!! I need to buy MTC or SCAL or something, because, while I LOVE cartridges, they add up FAST!!

While researching last night, I realized that the cricut website actually shows you the manual for the cartridges so you can see every single design!! How I missed this before, I have no clue! I ordered all three on HSN because I really love the carts, and think they'll be great for paper crafting as well icon_smile.gif The cartridges all have fonts on them, so that's an awesome bonus, IMO!!

Oh, and thanks for the link to CuttingEdgeCakeArt!!! That's exactly what I was looking for- I could find all sorts of hype from scrapbloggers, but no one who'd actually used the cartridges! Now I'm excited icon_smile.gif

I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy a cricut cake. I'm new into decorating cakes and love to scrapbook, too. Can you use paper in the cricut cake?

I have. I purchased the Cupcake Wrappers cartridge, and changed out the cake blade to the deep cut blade and housing, and the sticky mat and it cut beautifully. The only thing is that I have read that if you use it to cut paper, it voids the warranty. My question is, how would they know? Besides that, you aren't doing anything really different with the machine. I bet the original red machine will come down in price even more now. There is no difference between the red machine and the Martha Stewart White machine. I hope this helps.

Oh, one more thing. Cutting Edge has a picture, and explaination on their website using it to cut paper.

Does anyone know when/if and where the Cartridges will be available for purchase in Canada?

My understanging is that, for now, they're exclusive to HSN. I don't know if/when that will change- Can you not shop HSN in Canada?

I got all three of them on Saturday and they look AH-MAZING!! Haven't had a chance to use them yet, though! I was shocked that they got here so fast! My estimated delivery was some time in early August!!

Unfortunately no, I can pick them up on ebay but they are listed at $100 a piece and I'd like to get them for cheaper if possible. I absolutely LOVE the borders, they are so pretty!
