Obviously it doesn't look like anyone is willing to share the wealth. Ok, I for one am not worried about sharing some insight on what I know and how I gained the knowledge. So Tug, I'm going to put you in my buddy list and if I get the DVD before you do, I will PM you with instructions. How does that sound?



wow! this post has only been up a couple of hours and already jumping to the assumption no one is willing to help? I am sure people would share the info if they knew it.

I have never known this site or the posters on this site to be ones to hold back info....

Exactly. I just pointed out that this is also a holiday weekend and internet traffic tends to slow down considerably during such time periods. You'll get your answers ladies -- be patient! icon_razz.gif

Someone on another thread told how to use the Cricut with gumpaste. Click on the link below and go down about 1/3 of the way - there's a post by a member named rvanok. Good, short description of how this person cuts gumpaste with a Cricut.

If you're interested in the cricut expression there are lots of them on ebay.I got a brand new one that came with 2 cartridges and free shipping for $230.00. I got it to use for stencils, but plan on getting the video soon.

Apologies to all...I certainly did not mean to sound impatient. icon_redface.gif Circumstances this weekend leave me the time to be at my computer. That's usually not the case...I'd normally be running my errands, doing weekend stuff till about 9 PM most weekend days...

When I said "it can't be that hard" - it was more "we should be able to figure this out" than "why aren't they answering".

Again - Cakers have ALWAYS been generous with advice and I'm sorry if I sounded whiney...

Just a tidbit-if you are an educator by any chance, you can sign up for an educator's discount at JoAnn Fabric and think (not 100% certain-as I am sure it depends on who you talk to) you are able to use it on the Cricut/sale items.

So glad this topic ressurected.

I also had started a thread/topic on this back in February and so am very happy to know this info!

Can't wait to see what you find out about the DVD-that will be great!!

icon_smile.gif BTT.......I too have the 'baby Cricut'....am very interested in these video's.....what a great way to add to your cakes!

PS: The smaller Cricuts have come down DRASTICALLY in price....I got mine when it first came out....to the tune of almost $300.....several years ago. I have enjoyed it for my scrapping and cardmaking.....now to use it for cakes! I also will be upgrading to the big Cricut later this year.......so many things to buy!

OK, that's wierd. The link has somehow changed to a thread about BBQ or something. How does that happen? Anyway - I cut and pasted the info here:

I use a Cricut to cut gumpaste. First of all, you have to remove all of the tackiness from the cutting mat, otherwise you can't get the paste off after it's cut. (I literally rub it all off with my fingers then wash the mat in hot water.) To hold the paste in place, I apply a thin smear of crisco to the mat. I roll the paste thin, to a #7 on my pasta machine, and let it dry slightly. It works best with old gumpaste actually. I trim the paste so that it does not extend beyond the area that paper would normally be on the mat. I set the blade depth to a 4.

I get very clean, precise cuts except when the blade needs to be cleaned (after about 24 uses). I just remove the blade holder and use a straight pin to flick out the build up of paste. It comes right out, and I'm up and running again.
