The new Cricut Imagine has been released.. cutter & printer in one! I'm fairly jumping the gun here with my over enthusiastic excitement as I have only just purchased the Cricut Cake and haven't even set hands on it yet lol, but I wonder if the ink cartridges would be compatible with edible ink? If one can modify the Cricut Expression there is hopefully a way to modify the cutting component in the Imagine to be compatible with fondant or gumpaste??!! Thoughts?

Provocraft got tired of people buying the cricut, and then also purchasing an unrelated program like SCAL or MTC (like I did), so the new Imagine has no way to be connected to a computer. I would go with another brand rather than the cricut. Check out Linda McClure and the Silhouette. I hear it works much better w/ fondant/gumpaste than the cricut.

I looked at the Imagine and I don't think you would be able to run a frosting sheet or gum paste through it. Also, the type of ink cartridges are not compatible with the food coloring cartridges. You can use your own computer, your printer for frosting sheets and the Silhouette to cut out your own designs. It works great and I use the print and cut feaature with my Silhouette all the time now.

Oooh... can you tell me more about the "print and cut feature".. how does that work? Can the Cricut Cake do something similiar?
