I finally broke down and bought the cricut cake machine. I was going to spend some time "playing' with it today and I can't even get past the first step in the instructions. The book shows that the blade assembly has a black arrow and an adjustment knob with numbers. Mine doesn't have this. It is white with no numbers and no arrow. Did I receive the wrong one or are the instructions wrong? Any help is MUCH appreciated!

Instruction book is from some other planet (or Cricut model LOL). White knob, no numbers on my machine, too. Plop it in and go - mine cuts fine....

I got my cricut yesterday and was wondering about that as well. I found somewhere online that the white one is the updated version and that the book just doesn't reflect that yet.

Also, you can put the blade in either way as long as the two "columns" on the base of the unit are lined up with the grooves in the blade holder in the machine - sorry if that is confusing.... the blade will automatically turn the correct way once it starts to cut- at least that is what i read. good luck!!!

the cricut cake blade assembly doesnt have number and the housing is white so i think you have the wrong one

i'm so glad i ran across this!! This past weekend i went to a scrapbooking cricut party and got familiar with using the machine and then came home and took mine out of the box and noticed the same thing with my blade assembly. IT was super confusing when the instructions and manual all showed it with the adjustment and arrow on it.

So glad to know that i have the right one. Wish they would make a note about it on their paperwork, doesn't take much to add in a side note for the cricut cake.

Wow, talk about confussion overload! icon_confused.gif I also got mine the other day and when i sat down to open it and get it started i also noticed mine was white and had no numbers on it. I goggled to see what i could find and i came across this new version of the user manual that actually has the white blade assembly versus the black. Not sure why it wasn't included in my new cricut but they should definatley fix that! Anyways, here's the link in case anyone else gets confussedicon_smile.gif
