Can anyone tell me if I can use a Cricut Create as a Cake Cricut?
From my understanding, only the Cricut Cake should be used for cake stuff. The Cricut Cake has food safe parts and additional accessories to protect the machine. I hope that helps!
Thanks. The machine I have is actually brand new so it has not been used for anything yet.
Even if it is brand new, the Cake machine is made using different parts on the areas that may touch the food. I believe I've seen some places selling materials to "turn the regular Cricuts into Cake". I have the Cricut Cake Mini so I don't know about those kits, but I do love my Mini just as much as my Cricut Expression for my papercrafts.
Scroll down and view the comparison of the machines. I have a Cricut Cake and use it to cut paper all the time. I see nothing wrong with using a regular cricut to cut gumpaste or whatever as long as you buy the cake blade and a cake mat. Even though the rollers may touch the gumpaste, it will not come in contact with gumpaste that is going on your cake.
