ok so Ive bought the cricute and I LOVE LOVE LOVe the IDEA that this would be great to use and make cakes. But Ive had nothing but problems. I cant find a good recipe that the gum paste cuts clean in. Im not sure what Im doing wrong. My cuts come out ok but not great. They aren't clean like other people. They look gagged or sawed through. Any ideas or recipes?

Wilton fondant + tylose, roll out and let set for 15 minutes before cutting.

I use straight gumpaste (premade). I just knead it until it's soft and then run it through my pasta machine until it's pretty thin. I put it on the plastic board and let it dry for about 5 - 10 minutes. I found the real trick was using the deep housing cutter that I purchased separately and I have no problems.
