Thank you. They were 1/8 inch high they were just thick enough to go thru the machine. I wish they would have made it higher to make thicker cookies but they were fine. Not to thick and not to thin.
that opens the possibly of the cookies up a whole lot!!
Can't wait to try some of this tips
Can't wait to sit down and read all of this information, I really need this. I got my cricuit in January for my birthday and tried it once without success so yes I can't wait. Thanks everyone.
What kind of cookie dough did you use? I want to try this!!! (clapping hands and jumping up and down!!)
I used the NFSC. Love this recipe. I can't wait to play with my cartridges to see what cookies I can make. I am also clapping.
I was told by the distributor of Cricut Cake, that using products such as SCAL, which isn't licensed by Provocraft voids the warranty (as apparently the programme can fry the mother board of the computer component). I am now too scared to use it, as the person who told me not to, is the person I would have to return it to to get fixed. Has anyone had a problem using SCAL?
I have been reading and reading and reading on this and I just know I read somewhere that you could use SCAL but not MTC. Of course, I just went back to find that information, and I could not, so now I am not sure if I dreamed that up or not!? If I do find it again, I will post it.
I have both programs. No problems yet with any of them. I use them with my cricut cake.
OK - so I was looking at the back of my Cricut Cake and the input does not look like a typical USB input. It almost looks like a phone jack. Does anyone else's look like that? (I will try to upload a picture). I *reallly* want to try MTC tonight, so I need to know where to get the cable or USB connector to connect my computer to the Cricut. Any suggestions?
This is the best picture I could get of it. (i couldn't get the picture to upload-sorry!)
You should be able to get the connection from a place like Best Buy. I actually purchased Cricut Design Studio, and thankfully it came with the cord. I think it might be some kind of USB to s erial cable.
I used SCAL this weekend out of necessity, and it worked perfectly for me! I needed Chinese characters for a wedding cake. I had some nice thick ones in black that SCAL imported flawlessly. Then I resized and printed. THe bride's mother even complimented me on my chinese writing skills! How awesome is that?
That is awesome!!
So, I am not very computer savy, if I say I need a USB to serial cable/cord - someone will know what I am talking about?
The connection is crazy-looking - there is a white piece of plastic in it that I thought maybe came out (then it would look more like a phone jack) but I gave it a little tug and it didn't come out, so I think it is supposed to be there! LOL!
Thanks for your help!
I am SOO envious of everyone ! I can't get mine to work, it just tears. I have tried all the tips on here and it still fails. I am using Satin Ice fondant and gum paste, nothing is working, freezing, setting out, rolling thin, all the settings on here all tear. Been doing this since Saturday - ugggh! What am I doing wrong? Really need for a cake order Friday morning, but looks like this just is not going to work. Hope Walmart will take it back, cause nothing is working!
Love the cake!
Thank you so much sberryp !!!
So both SCAL and MTC work well with the cake cricut? I was going to purchase and download one of the programs this week. Which site is better to purchase from? Are there any deals going on right now?
MTC is on sale right now for about 20 bucks cheaper then normal.

It's the same kind of cord that connects most printers to a computer. I pulled my cord off an old printer we had lying around.
Thanks AXOCutie! I will try that tonight after work.
Love the suggestions! Thanks for sharing. Oh and your cakes are awesome...
Thanks Brandee Beavers
kakes4kids - did you try rolling your fondant out on your mat and letting it sit out for a little while? If I freeze mine, it gets all sticky and won't cut. If I let it set out and firm up it works great. Also try adding tylose or do 50/50 gumpaste - fondant.
Just got the Cricut Cake - took a copy of the Walmart.com add to Michael's and they took it. Going to buy the SCAL now. Can't wait to use the Cricut.
Karen421 - I did let it set out, tried 15min, 30 min, 45 min & 1 hour. Hubby took it apart last night, played with it and found that after about 2 seconds of cutting the needle housing is getting gummed up and the needle isn't moving right. He is custom fitting a rubber cover for it today like the cake one has. Hopefully that will fix it.
kakes4kids, what cricut are you using?
Karen421 - Cricut Expression with a deep blade and housing
I am curious since I am new to cricut cake and MTC and SCAL. Is one program better than the other? If so why?
Also, is one program easier to use than the other?
I saw the post that MTC is on sale right now, so want to make my decision soon.
Any help would be appreciated.
Can you change the font size with the cake basics? When I moved the dial to change the letter size, it didn't do anything.
I hate to tell you this girl, but you have a defective machine. I know this because I had to return my cake machine for the very same problem. I called ProvoCraft and they had me send mine back so they can check it out. In return they sent me a brand new one. Call Provo Craft and explain the problem. I also own a cricut expression so when I didn't fell the clicking on the dial and the size wasn't changing I knew something was wrong. Don't fret, they really did a great job and sent my new cricut machine as soon as they received my defective one. Give them a call.
