My cricut cake has been one of my most worthless and expensive cake tools until this past weekend. Since purchasing it, I have tried gumpaste rolled thinly, fondant in the freezer, fondant with tylose, 50/50 paste etc and the results have all just plain stunk. I have been really disappointed with it. UNTIL I had an epiphany brought on by hand cramps on Saturday. I was cutting out little trees with an exacto knife and thought to myself, geez, using this 50/50 fondant and modelling chocolate mix is working well with the exacto... I wonder how it would do in the cricut??? And it worked! I rolled it out to a number 4 on my pasta machine, stuck it to the mat with a thin film of shortening and it cut. And cut. And cut. All of the rest of the little trees for my cake. And I didn't have to freeze it. I didn't have to let it dry. I stuck it to the mat, loaded up the mat, and it worked! I think if you have not tried this fondant & modelling chocolate mix with your cricut yet, you should! It really worked for me with no hassles.
