What kinda of pasta machine do u have? I have a kitchenaid mixer but don't really want to spend $60 on a pasta roller... is there a cheaper hand crank or do I need the kitchenaid roller? And how do you make your gumpaste creations stick to the fondant? buttercream or something else?
Thank you!

I just have an atlas one I got at the kitchen store for like $30. I will eventually get one for my kitchenaid but not yet. I haven't actually put anything on a cake yet. Just trying it out. I have been messing with some programs and can tell I am going to love the sure cuts a lot program and inkscape. I will just use a little water to stick them on fondant covered cakes.

Thank you!! I will go try to find a pasta machine next week. I don't know if you saw or not but if you get sure cuts a lot it will void your cricut warranty. I have both cricuts w/ several carts and you can usually find the cartridges on sale for $30. Customcrops.com has them on sale now for $34.99 I think.
Thank you!

The program will work with all the cricut system I believe!

( I was just wondering why would it void your warrenty?) I bought mine at H.S.N. so I believe i have a different warrenty with them outside of the the one that the makers provide, guess that's a good thing in case it does.

I found my pasta roller at Ross for $ 5.00 cause the box was messed up! You can check there they usually have them for around $11.00 or so! And it a good roller and a great price. Just a thought I budget everything and find great deals just looking and great products

They also have their 40% off coupon & you can use it on the hand crank pasta machine. The ones in my town are located in the clay isle.

I thought some of you would be interested in this . . . HSN (Home Shopping Network) is selling the Cricut Expression with four cartridges today for $429 -- shipping & handling is free. I believe they are also offering "easy pay."

I ordered one!!!

Has anyone tried to use their cricut for cardstock after trying the gumpaste? My DH is worried i'm not going to be able to use it for both.

I have a couple of questions. How stiff does the gumpaste have to be before you cut it & how stiff before taking it off the board? I'm wondering about stretching, wrinkling or even cracking & breaking if it dries too much.

Then there is the ? of will it have to be removed before cutting the cake or will it stay soft enough? Although gumpaste is edible it isn't advised.

Has anyone tried adding tylose to fondant then using it in the cricut?

The only way that cricut will ever know that you are using surecutsalot is if you call them up and tell them you are using it!!!
