I'm sure it would work great with wafer paper alone. I've cut lots of different things with mine. And, yes...they do have butterflies. The dies are so much more detailed than anything you can get with a typical cutter. I'm thinking about it for music notes and little boy and girl "dolls" that can be dressed and made up with different hair, etc. Lots and lots of possibilities. I spent at least an hour on their website today thinking about cake applications for various dies. One of these years I'm going to get one of their alphabet sets. But, those are really high dollar. Not this week! icon_smile.gif

Has anyone been using the Sizzix machine since this was first posted?

IF so, how is it working out for you?

thanks

Are they similar to paper punches if not give them a try..... just dust with cornflour and roll gumpaste nice and thin ....it works great .....I used one to cut out all the small butterflies (200 of them) for some mini wedding cakes. I've got a heap of them now.......hearts, stars dragon flies, music notes etc, etc......now to find something to use them on!!!! icon_lol.gif

Question
Is the fondant not making the die cut sitcky? I would think that it would mess up your die cutters and make them where you couldnt use them for paper again.

This just made my day!!! I just bought some of ABC's from a friend who wanted to get them out of her house because now that she has 4 kids she does all digital scrap booking.....which I still love to do...but I am super excited to get these...also you can go on the Sizzix site and get some stuff on clearance!!

Once I get mine I will make some letters and things of that nature I will post pictures and let you know how things go!!

I've been toying with this idea too as i really just cannot afford the Cricut cake.

I have some edible icing sheets - they are thicker than the usual edible image sheets - more like card. I already use them by colouring them through the edible printer and then I use paper punches - they produce lovely shapes so was thinking can't see any reason why you couldn't use them with the Sizzix. Can pick up the new big shot express in UK for £86 which compared with £400-£500 the Cricut will cost me is a no-brainer.
Here are some cupcakes I made using the edible sheets and a paper punch. So you can see from that top photo how thin the edible sheet is - I'm sure it will work with the machine.

I have a sizzix and I love it for cuuting out gumpaste I roll very thin and then let it dry a little on both sides then cut out my shape. It works great!!
