Hi,

The you can still purchase the cartridges - but it pay to shop around. Walmart has two of the Cricut Cake Cartidges for a really nice price. I also took a little time and got the Martha Stewart Cartridges and all of my additional cartridges from Ebay. I used Proud Parents 2005. They have a really nice site. Also - if you keep an eye out - AC Moore, Michaels, and Joann have been having sales on the Cricut Cartridges.

Hope this helps.

yes all of the cartridges that cricut makes will fit. I use to work for michaels, but they recomend that you dont use them on a machine u plan to use on paper.

yes you can get the cartridges, try www.cricutmachine.com. I bought elegant cakes for 10 when Michaels was getting rid of all of their cricut cake stuff and a set of mats for 2. I wish they had more but oh well. I can't say it was worth it yet because I haven't used it yet but I am sure at that price when I do it will be well worth it. Honestly I use sure cuts a lot because I don't have to have the cartridges but unfortunately with provocraftt suing them it's not longer supported. I won't be able to update the firmware ever on my machine!

I just bought a cricut cake on ebay for $75, and I am trying to find more information about the programs Make the Cut and Sure Cuts A Lot. Looks to me like there is no way to get either now. Other than trying to get a good price on the cartridges what options do I have for doing more custom work with it?

Unfortunately, unless you can get an older disc of one of the softwares. I know the silhouette is the machine that is still compatible.

From what I have seen though the Silhouette doesn't say anything about being used for cakes. I have came across a few older copies of SCAL but they are not gonna be cheap.

Look for Linda McClure she has a lot of information about the silhouette.

Is the cricut cake being phased out? Should I return the one I just bought? What would be the next best thing?
