I just saw this advertised for the first time. Has anyone used this and if so, what did you think of it? Curious...

never heard of it. What's it for exactly? Or what edges does it cut?

I just looked this up. It looks similar to slide paper cutters people use for scrapbooking. The Wilton website says it can cut their sugar sheets, gumpaste or fondant.

Leah it looks like a paper cutter. The blade slides along the bed and cuts the fondant/gumpaste.
I am wondering if a real paper cutter (cheaper) would work the same as the Wilton one?

A new gadget! Always on the lookout for something new but to me it looks like nothing more than what my pizza cutter or wavy ribbon cutter can do. Was just wondering if I was missing something spectacular about it???? icon_confused.gif

Looks like it works just like a normal paper cutter. If it's cheaper, I would go for it, if not, I would grab a scrap booking paper cutter. I've never used the wilton sugar sheets, but besides that I don't really know what it would be used for.

People don't cut their fondant until it's on their cake. Can't exactly stick that under your fondant once it's on your cake. Unless someone has had a great experience/result with it or you use the sugar sheets....I wouldn't waste money on it

What wilton is doing is coming out with it's own version of different things decorators have started using like for example they have something similar to an exacto knife with a rubber grip. Stuff like that. So just like the punches are mini & travel size versions of the cricut cake. I will say the sheet are less expensive than the cricut & taste better....however I demonstrate it in class with the ones we go free at training.but since I use my cricut It would be a waste of money to buy all the different cutters. Please that's a lot of space being taking up.

So you'll see a lot of new stuff coming out within the next couple of months...

This is the definition of the slid-n-Cut Edge Cutter.......Cut perfect strips of Wilton Sugar Sheets! Edible Decorating Paper, Fondant or Gum Paste with this adjustable cutter. Works like a paper trimmer but with more versatility! Slide the cutting arm to the position you want, and lock into place. No need to keep handling your edible material to make multiple cuts. Cutting is safe and easy. Gently push down on the handle to engage the stainless steel blade and slide down the arm. Change the blade handle to cut a straight or a wavy edge. Removable cutting blade wipes clean with a soft cloth. 9 x 12 in. cutting surface is marked for easy measuring. For food use only.

So it to use to cut the sheets before you put on the cake....here's the video:

Hope this helps
