I am trying to determine if it's worth the extra money to buy the Cricut Cake, or if I could just get a Cricut Expression (I can get one off craigslist that's barely used for way less than the Cricut Cake will run me). I know some of you mentioned using your Cricut to do cakes before the Cricut Cake even cake out. What is the difference between these two machines really? Is it worth it to spend the extra money and get the cake one, or can I do everything with the expression? Are the cartridges for the Cricut Cake the same style as the regular ones, and if so couldn't they be used in the Expression or even a smaller version?
they are the same machine with very little modifications. You can use the expressions, you just need to invest in a deep housing blade. You also need to move the two rubber rollers that are in the middle of the bar on the expressions to the side.
All the carts are exchangeable between the different cricut machines.
BTW: I use the baby bug for my cakes.
Peg818; Thank you for the info. All the details will be so helpful. I thought I could use the expression, now I know I can. Yeah
I use the expression... never had a problem! So I don't see the need to buy a whole other machine. I bought the expression specifically for cakes back when i got it.
