AI bought a cricut cake last year (2011) and it's still in the box. I've read horrible reviews - but since I love my cricut expression for cards and tag making , I figured I would give it a whirl - well almost 12 months later it still sits boxed up in my basement. I'm looking to buy some icing sheets from icing images, but would like to use them for more than just printing. I'm not interested in buying another cutting machine - (hello divorce) just trying to figure out a better way to decorate with letters and fonts. Thanks!

AYes you can. Anything to detailed or small doesn't cut very well though (from my experience). I couldn't cut a letter smaller than about an inch when I started using mine but I found if I held something flat (I use my metal spatula) against the blade and ontop of the sheets it doesn't crumple up into a big mess and u can do smaller and more detailed stuff that way.
