so, i'm going to attempt to use gumpaste today with my cricut cake. i have used mmf both successfully and unsuccessfully depending on the day, so i'm going to try gumpaste. question is, if i'm lucky enough to get some good cuts today (need for cake next week), do i let them dry or keep them softer for the cake next week? i'm putting them on a round tiered wedding cake, so i'm thinking if i let them dry they will crack if i need to "wrap" any part of them on the tiers. is that right? how do i keep them ready for next week then? first time trying gumpaste, so this is scary. thanks for any help!

Definitely keep them covered and soft till you do your cake. You can put them onto a spare cricut cake mat then into large ziploc bag. or just in any airtight container. Good luck with cutting gumpaste on your cricut. The key is to roll it thin enough, make sure blade doesn't get gumpaste stuck to it and play around with settings for blade depth and pressure.
