I can't believe it! Something actually worked for me the first time I tried it! I have a Cricut Create machine, and I used Linda McClure's video tips for cutting. I cut off the rollers, installed a deep blade housing and blade, rolled out some Satin Ice to a 4 on my Kitchenaid pasta roller, put it on a dollar store flexible cutting mat with a little Crisco, let it dry for 15 minutes, and cut some 1 and 1.5 inch letters out! I put the machine on slow speed, medium pressure. And it worked! This will make my 150 cupcakes with fondant initial plaques for an October wedding so much easier! I'm so excited! And I didn't have to buy a Cricut Cake to do it! I can't do the bigger border things for cakes, but that's okay! Smiling now! Sorry there's no pics... our camera broke and the new one hasn't come in yet.
Good luck to all of you on your Cricut cutting adventures!

So, please don't anyone jump all over me, but isn't that kind of unsanitary? I mean, the Cricut Cake is made for food use, the others aren't. I mean, it's not like the Cricut Police are going to jump out of the machine and yell at you, or anything. lol I guess some things just scare me.

You could make those initial plaques ahead of time so when October comes you only need to bake and ice and put those plaques on icon_smile.gif

You aren't supposed to. The cricut cake is made with stainless steel and food-grade parts that you can take out and clean, for sanitation reasons.

I figure if I don't use it for paper (which I don't), it should be okay. I understand the concern, though.
I'll be starting on those plaques next week, GGFan! Super excited!
