i just have to get this off my chest. maybe im just jealous because i dont have one , but i hate hate hate the cricut. to me the cakes look too "premade", almost artificial. i feel like it takes away from the personal touch and creativity of decorating a cake. the cakes look "too perfect", not individualized at all. just wondering if any one else out there feels the same
LOL! I actually am getting ready to buy one! I sort of agree that they look way to perfect but i think with the right touches on them you could really do some awesome cakes!
Perhaps the ones that look too premade to you are the ones created using a cartridge. I've used mine several times along with SCAL2 and have yet to create a cake using an image from a cartridge.
As far as too perfect, there are plenty of flaws on my cakes. Those decorations help detract from them.
Also, don't use it to create your entire cake. Use it as accent pieces, as part of your cake, not as the whole design.
