I'm sorry if this has already been asked. I've been using the search function for over an hour and can't find the answer. May be user error on my part but in any case...

Can any cricut machine be used to cut gumpaste? I'd rather spend $120 on a basic machine than over $400 on the cake version.

I have the basic one and it takes alittle messing with it, but it will cut the gumpaste.

There are two little rubber things in the middle of the bar that need to either be cut off or pushed to the side so that it doesn't mark your paste. You also, have to take the glue off the matt. Do a search there is a ton of info on this subject.
