I have both and use both. I like the silhouette bacauese you can print with an edible image printer then cut the shape ut with the silhouette.

I love my Silhouette. Like tiggy2, I use mine to print and cut edible images. Also use it to design cc wrappers and cookie bag toppers.

The Silhouette is by far the better machine. I get a better cut with the cake blade that comes with it and I love the print and cut feature.

I should mention if you purchase it from Linda McClure you get a special cake blade. If you get it anywhere else you wont get that. She is also very helpful if you contact her with any problems you may have.

I am going to take Linda's class in a couple of weeks. Really looking forward to it. She is close enough to me so I won't have the cost of a hotel stay icon_smile.gif

Hey linedancer, glad to see you are coming to the class. I posted a notice about her class on here, but it was pulled.

I took Linda's class a few weeks ago and loved it! We used both the silhouette and the cricut and I liked the silhouette better. It was much faster and had a cleaner cut. You will learn alot from her! Plus you can make the edible image!

I have only used the Silhouette (Linda's package). After reading about all the issues people were having with the Cricut it was even more of a sell for me to get the Silhouette. Plus it has the print and cut feature which I really like.

After I got it I watched the dvds and played around with it using paper first. When I went to cut my first piece of gumpaste it worked perfectly! I was expecting a lot of trial and error, but with Linda's dvd and following her instructions it worked like a charm.

So for me, Silhouette hands down!

I must have seen the notice before they pulled it, that's how I found out about the class. I knew she was having one in Brunswick, GA and was considering that, but it would have taken me 4 days, two to drive up and back, then the 2 day class. So that would have tacked on gas and hotel for 3 nights, I was glad to see her in St Pete.
