I used my Cricut mini for the first time tonight....super SCORE!!!
I bought it on BF, and have spent the last few days reading every post, and watching utube videos....I had succes with this machine right off the bat...I watched all the utube videos and read all the posts.

I used fondant with a bit of gumtex mixed in...I feel that I had success becuz I FROZe the product for an entire half hour...then afterwards I put the mat back into the freezer for abt 15 min
I LOVE Cricut....I was able to make a FAB-O BD cake for my dh...

I have a cricut under my tree too. Having read all the posting here I am thinking about returning it.
I'm afraid I won't be able to use it.

So let me get this straight.. there is now a cricut mini? same thing as cricut, but a smaller version? Is there a big price difference between the two?

I asked if I could return the machine if I was unhappy with it (so many people had problems with it) and I was told 90 days with the receipt. This was JoAnne's return policy.

Which store was your machine purchased?

I'm assuming that if it's been used you still can return it? Or maybe not being that its an item that is used in food preparation? (I didn't even think to ask that when I purchased it)

Maybe someone can clarify?

Yes, Cricut mini retails at around $220.00 I believe?

But I got mine at JoAnne's black friday doorbuster sale for $99.00 icon_biggrin.gif

I got my Cricut Cake for $199.00 at Joanne's. Cartrigdes for $39.99.

So you are saying that even if you have used the cricut you can return it to Joannes?

Yes, that is what the clerk told me, but I see from your other post that you had success with it icon_smile.gif

You'll have to let us know how you like elegant cakes....I was tempted to order it but I have spent too much on myself already (I have an airbrush coming too!)

I just got mine in the mail today. I had bought it online from the JoAnn's black friday sale for $99. I have been playing for two hours. Some had mentioned that there is additional software that can be used with it without getting cartridges and I am curious about that. My best friend wants to make a Wrestling cake for her nephews next weekend and we were hoping we could find the logo online and get the cricut to cut it.. Does anyone know if that is possible?
