Has anyone tried using the new Wilton Sugar Sheets in their Cricut? If so, would you mind sharing how they worked. Thanks!

I would love to know that too! My hubby got me one last year for Mother's Day and I haven't been able to get any use out of it. The fondant/gumpaste doesn't seem to ever work well for me - I have tried a few of the suggestions on CC, but got fustrated and shoved it in a cabinet. $4 sugar sheets would be great if they work.

I just tried them tonight and it worked!!!! I left the sugar sheets attached to the plastic backing and put crisco on my cutting mat. I then placed the sugar sheet (plastic on the bottom) on the mat and then loaded it into my cricut. I was making letters and it did great with 2" and up. I had a small problem with the 1" size, but had already used the only sheet I bought. (Didn't want to buy more until I knew it would work). Also, CakeMom5001, I usually have no problem when I use Satin Ice Fondant on my cricut cake machine. Sometimes I do mix it half and half with gumpaste, but have done it both ways.

My First time I ever used a Cricut I had bought both the Icing Sheets from Wilton and the sheets from Cricut. The cricut sheets were hard and broke as my design was cut. The Wilton sheets worked perfectly. I did 2" letters as well as Happy Birthday design. Even the intricate swirls on the Happy Birthday came out. I wouldn't go much smaller than 2" if you have any deisgns that have thin swirls, etc. But the machine did a great job with the letters as well as with the shadow image of the letters.

I have also used rolled fondant to cut the surf boards from the Luau cartridge, and the design inside was cut so that I could use the cut out from one color in the inside of the other and vice versa to create an embedded design.
