About a year ago, I purchased the Cricut cake for all the features. I used it maybe once last year and swore at myself for spending the money on the machine. Well, I've used it more and more in the last month and I'm kind of liking it. However, the cartiladges are out the roof expensive for only a few things that would be useful to cake decorators. I don't care if one is 25.00-30.00 on ebay and where ever (80-90 at michaels!!), it still adds up if all you really want is the font or maybe a few cutting designs. So, I find, that what I really want is something that cuts everything. I mean something that I can buy a software for or have the machine be customizable to cut what I want. I've spent the last hour and a half looking for such software, with no luck! I was looking at the Silhouette SD which does have software to cut what you want, but I really don't know if it is food safe. I've seen the gyspy for the cricut but it doesnt let you create other designs, you can only use what you've got on your cartiladges. I just want the easy of use to customize my own design, or use the pletora of fonts that is available to me on the computer! I have a lot of cakes that I use logos on and I have to trace, cut the pattern, and then use it as a template to cut from gumpaste (So labor intensive!). I wish I had something that I could design to have it cut it out for me. Have others run in to his problem? It's super annoying that you pay tons of money for the machine and then have to keep shelling out money for the cartiladges. What is everyone elses thoughts about this? Has anyone found a way to cut whatever you want on a cricut?
