I just finished cutting several items- see my post in the How To section. Today's success makes me ready to try more. I have used it a few times since getting, but today was the best.I can't imagine cutting cookies with it. I make decorated cookies, and there is no way to get the nice thick ones with the cricut. Moravian sugar cookies, maybe! I have been thinking about using the machine to cut a template for...
I just finished cutting both homemade gumpaste and Wilton Sugar Sheets today. My gumpaste I rolled very thin, then left out to dry for 20-30 minutes or so. They were a bit dry-ish on top, but the scraps still kneaded up and could be rerolled. I cut the castle and princess from the Birthday Cakes cartridge at 5" and 4.5".

What a cutie! Cake looks great too! The texturing looks wonderful!
I googled, and found one recipe that says to brush the marzipan lightly with water, which will "glue" the fondant on. Another recipe says egg whites.
Shelley, I have not worked with the special topsy turvy pans. It looks like the shape of the pan should replace having to cut the angle for the top of each tier. I would think about cutting the space in each tier for the next one up to rest in. (There are several good tutorials for this on YouTube; I like Janelle's.) After cutting that area down, and covering with icing or fondant, then you peg the tiers just as you would for regular flat tiers.I think some people...
