I would try using either vanilla bean in the recipe or french vanilla creamer as flavoring. I have used both and liked both. I used that on top of the regular amount of vanilla the recipe calls for.
I did mine with a cream cheese frosting that has cinnamon in it....sooooo good with gingerbread.
You can use any cricut cartridge as far as I know however I don't think all paper ones are useful as the images are too intricate to cut out of edible materials.
I have seen them at costco in calgary for $299 but don't think I have seen a new one anwhere near that cheap anywhere else. I doubt that a 250 watt will last long if you are mixing fondant in it.

Sounds like our alberta weather made a little detour to nevada. We had a couple feet of snow this week.

I am starting to think that 3d is going to be a pain in the butt, so i might do 2 sets with 3d and the other two sets with 2d images or maybe even just sillouettes. I am going to have a good look through all my cricut cartridges and see if I couldn't do most of them on there. I don't use it much really but to do...
Milk bucket sounds like a good idea. Thanks. Maybe once i get a few of the days done I will find some more inspiration.
I am making some 4" cakes for my sister to give to her staff at work. The theme is 12 days of christmas. I love these little cakes: something simple like this but each cake having a simple decoration for the day of christmas. Most of them are pretty easy to do but am having trouble with the 'Maids a milking' and the 'Lords a leaping' .I really don't want to put people on them but can't think of anything that...
