The Cricut cake machine has a different blade housing than the regular Cricut machines. You can use the deep cut blade housing unit with the deep cut blade in the Cricut Cake machine. The Cricut Cake is no longer being sold, so you may have to go to ebay to find replacement blades.
I added black color to the sugar lace mixture and it worked just fine. I made black lace pieces to put on a white cake and it was very pretty
If you use an electronic cutter Ike the Silhouette you can easily cut endless designs. THere is a tutoriall here. www.creativedesignsforcakes.blogspot.com
 If you contact Linda through email or a phone call she will do her best to help you, even if you did not get your machine from her. She was a great help to me from the beginning and I use my Cameo all the time with my cakes. I can successfully cut icing sheets or gum paste. You do not want to cut through the paper, just through the icing sheet (not the backing paper). I do not use the blade that comes with the Silhouette, but the modified blade I got with my Cameo from...
There are several cakes at www.thebakerycottage.com   I know the silhouette is used for a lot of those cakes
The Cricut Cake is no longer being produced. So if you go with it, you may not be able to get supplies in the future.

Any electronic cutter work if the blade holder has a knife that comes out far enough to cut gum paste. There are several on the market, Cricut, Zing and Silhouette just to name a few. As far as food safe, nothing touches the gum paste except the knife, so it is food safe. (This has been discussed before)   I have used several and find the Silhouette to be the best. The Silhouette program is excellent to work in, the blade holder that comes with the Silhouette from...
The blade housing that is sold by Deseret Designs is modified to fit the Silhouette. You cannot buy it from a craft store. The replacement blade (or knife) can be bought at a craft store. I use the Cricut deep cut blade when I need a replacement. If you already have a Silhouette you can get just the accessory package that includes the blade, but most important the instructional book. The blade that comes with the machine can be used to cut icing sheets. Icing Images sells...
Looks like they may have used an electronic cutter and cut the gum paste designs. I use my Silhouette to create designs like this all the time.
