I have had one since they were released and I love mine. There is a learning curve however; expect to spend a couple of days getting friendly with it.

I really love mine, it's great for doing letters! It did take some practice to get the settings and thickness of the fondant just right. I usually will roll out my fondant and then give it a while to 'set' and dry out a bit before cutting an that's really helped a lot.

I got the 'Make the Cut' software for Christmas to go with my cricut! Can't wait to try it out icon_biggrin.gif

from my experience mmf doesn't cut too well =/ using store bought fondant or nicholas lodge's gumpaste recipe ( yields the best results for me =D hth!

I haven't had much success with cutting mmf on it, even with adding tylose, it just stretches too much.

I tried my Cricut Cake Mini today for the first time and used MMF and it seemed to work OK. I put it in the freezer for a little bit so maybe that's why it worked.
