Could you tell me what type of gp/fondant that you used & how thin you rolled it? Also the settings you used on your Cricut?
I've only been successful with large, simple cut-outs (nothing as intricate as yours). I'm using fondant with tylose. I rolled to all different thicknesses on my pasta machine. I've removed all the tackiness from my mat & use a thin film of Crisco. I also use the deep housing blade. I've tried to let the gp dry @ different times on the mat as well. When I try the intricate designs or letters, the blade cuts well at first, then it seems to drag the gumpaste.

Thanks!

I forgot to post my cakes:

I used the Cricut for the clouds & large flowers:

Used the Cricut on the name tag:

I use my Cricut with edible image paper on a weekly basis; haven't done the fondant/gumpaste thing yet.

The 'drag' mentioned just indicates that you need to remove the blade and clean the bottom of it; probably bits of material are stuck to it or around it.

For using edible image paper: I airbrush any color I need (takes seconds to dry) and then cut away. Really saves the day for 'writing' on the cake. Just wish it could cut smaller than an inch.

pippilotta I see that you put the images on your cake while they were still soft. Many people have said to let it dry a little before using the machine so I was wondering what you did.

I haven't tried mine yet with gumpaste, just been getting used to it with paper.

Veronica, I put the cut outs on a lightly damped kitchen paper. This method was shown on the DVD from deseretdesigns . com
