There's a big difference between Cake Cricut and a Silhouette. I think Cake Cricut is easy, but then again, once you have a Silhouette and know how to use the program, you don't have to buy any cartridges to do things.   A class at Craftsy would be a great idea, but I'm not holding my breath because not everyone can afford a Silhouette. I've found classes that seem reputable at Kerri Bradford Studio blog (haven't bought any yet). I do think it's best to start cutting...

howsweet...she's not the granddaughter, she's the daughter-in-law. It's her mother-in-law they're talking about.
Actually here it is.
In this thread I put a link to icing plug instructions. It might be easier that way.
Here they also have bags.
