Hi to all i havent been on this site in a long time. But i have a question can you still get the cartridges for this machine? and are they worth what you pay? Thanks to all
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.
Do all the cricut cartridges fit in the crincut cake? and do the martha stewart ones fit too?
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?
