At $4 per sheet, you'd better not make any mistakes. Looks cool, though, and I will probably order some.

I ordered 3 sheets, black, purple and yellow. The colors were very nice, but it cost me $20.00 including shipping. I wanted to use them with my electronic cutter, I use icing image sheets all the time with great success. Not one sheet cut for me! I tried everything I could think of to make them work. I know they were made for the craft punches and I am sure they will work very well with the punches. The sheets are very thick and a bit rubbery. Thet are 8x11. I think they will be fun to decorate with, but the punches and sheets are not cheap.

What do you cut with your electronic cutter from icing sheets? Do you have a Cricut or other brand?

A cookie cutter will not work. You can use scissors to cut out designs. You can get the craft punches from the craft store. They are a bit expensive to punch out one design. Not only can you punch out one design you can also get the punches to do borders.

These sheets are about to start popping up in Michaels. From what I understood from Wilton they should have been out in the stores last weekend. But my Michaels Manager said they reset is due to start next week.

I use the frosting sheets from icingimages with my electronic cutter. They have the best quality sheets I have found (and I have tried several brands). Hopefully they will come out with different colors in the near future. The Wilton sheets are way over priced.

I saw these at my local Joann's today...was wondering what they were. Looks like Joann's got rid of all the Wilton shaped pans and now they have a wall full of the cutters and sheets...also some silicone (?) molds that looked fun were added but they were almost sold out already.
