I have the Cricut expression and never used it until now. Stayed in the box for several months before pulling it out. I bought it to work with fondant/gumpaste. Anyway, I've tried it without any luck until reading the thread that's going around. Thanks BTW. It's helped me so much. The problem is, how do you prevent the wheels from leaving an indention on the gumpaste or fondant? Did you remove those? Rolled the fondant/gumpaste very thin? Everytime I make a cut I have a line thru the pattern. Does this make sense? Does the Cricut Cake have these wheels? Should I sell the expression and get the Cricut Cake? Just needing some answers from other expression user.

Thanks
Stephanie

the Cricut Cake does not have a center wheel...just the ones on the outside edges. I have read that others who have the machine you have did cut the middle wheel off. I have the Cake and I just make sure that the fondant/tylose mix has been rolled within the boundries of the matt. HTH

Just roll the rubber wheels to the sides.
