I got the Cricut Cake Mini for Christmas like many of you and I love it! I was apprehensive a bit after reading some negative reviews on it, but I just used it for the first time and had no problems. I rolled my fondant (satin ice) 1/8" thin and put it on the mat as the instructions said. I put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes while I got the machine ready. I used the Create a Critter cartridge and cut the whale and starfish. The little tiny hole cuts werent perfect, but I didnt expect them to be either. All in all, I love it and I think it cut it really well. The fondant didnt bunch up, slide, etc. Im excited to try it with gumpaste to see if the littlest details are more precise.
I got one for Christmas too and I'm scared to take it out of the box. I might experiment with for my nephew's cake weekend though.
Does anyone know if make the cut works with the mini?
i got one too, havent tried it yet, was kinda intimidated!! but determined to try it this wkend!
Make the cut should work with any of the cricuts. If you roll your fondant/gumpaste thinner and let it dry a bit before cutting the the intricate designs will cut much better. The best way to roll it is with a pasta roller.
