hi all,
i've been reading about it a lot, but i don't really understand how it works...

let's say i want a red heart image. would i place, say, red-colored fondant in the machine and it just cuts the heart? or, would i simply place white fondant in the machine and it will color it red AND cut it out?

any info is appreciated. thanks! icon_smile.gif

It just cuts out. It does not do the coloring. icon_smile.gif

I was just wondering if you all were talking about the cricut machine that you can buy at Wal-Mart that cuts out images from paper, etc?

I believe she is talking about the Cricut Cake machine. I bought mine at Michael's.

You can use that, it's what alot of people used before the cricut cake became available.

Thanks so much for the info. I was not aware that there was something like this that could be used. I use cookie cutters but what a world of difference something like this would make. Do you happen to know where all that you can purchase one of these from. Thanks for the help. icon_biggrin.gif

Ebay has the Cricut Cake Machine. I recently saw a post on cc that someone purchased it through ebay for $190. When they first came out they were around $400.00, but it also came with some extras. HTH

You might want to keep researching the cricut. I hate it for cake stuff. I'm using my cutters.

I'm having a lot of fun with my cake cricut. Was really hesitant about it with so many people having trouble using it, but I havent had as much trouble as others. It's the same as everyone else, learning curve. Figuring out what works and what doesnt. Google it too, and you can find all kinds of information.
