Please share cakes done with the new Circut Cake

post #1 of 24

I don't have the Cricut Cake and am still trying to decide on it.

But, I would love to see pictures of cakes done with the Cricut Cake to try and help me to decide if it's worth it.

Thanks,

...Bump I can't believe that no one has made a cake using the new Cricut Cake machine

Check the cricut forums - the ones I've seen so far are not impressive icon_sad.gif Though impressive at this point might even just be getting the silly thing to cut properly :/

I did a gallery search here on the regular cricut and there are alot of pictures that are awesome. The Cricut Cake will allow you to cut thicker gum paste/cookie dough. I just seen a thread that Big Lots is selling the Cricut for $129. and Carts for $30, not sure which Cricut tho. HTH

If you didn't want to use carts and wanted to use your own designs, there's 3rd party software that will allow you to be creative. Sure Cuts Alot (SCAL), also a new software called MAKE THE CUT (MTC). FYI: Provo Craft just filed a lawsuit against MTC. MTC has many more features than SCAL. MTC, he is a software developer with a forty hour work week, he developed this software because his wife has a cricut and their software is very limited.

forums to view and download templates,

You can download both software for trial purposes.

You also can download a free program called Inkscape and use their SVG files to use as templates. There are many free SVG files out there, just google SVG files.

I used my Cricket Cake Cutter last night for the first time. I used the Happy Birthday font on one of the choclate colored frosting pages. I wasted on sheet with mistakes. It takes some getting use to.

KEY always read the instructions first! LOL

The taste is gross - but I like the results. Lookes like paper. I will take a picture today and post. I wish the rest of the cake was a nice...it was a rush cake and I am being hard on myself for not thinking the project thru.

CCC review: must read all instructions and watch DVD - I give it a thumbs up! I think that with time and practice (like all things) I can get really cool creative results.

Ok - be nice this is my first attempt at using the Cricut with the frosting sheets they give you.

#1 don't use corn syrup to paste on fondant
#2 should have used the cricut to cut out the name - looks like a two year old piped it

I am going home after work and pop in the DVD. I am a trial by fire type of gal and that is NO GOOD for a "toy" like this.

Birthday cake I made for my hubby. It took quite a bit of trial and error for me to figure out how to get smooth cuts. Oddly - Wilton seems to work the best and was easy to get clean cuts from. I was really worried the first few days! Kind of showing you a side view here so you can see a bit more of what everything looks like in 3-D

I second that, Kelli. Lovely! Question for you -- are these done using the frosting sheets, or have you ventured into using real gum paste or fondant yet? I haven't heard of anyone having success with other than with the frosting sheets yet so I'm still undecided. icon_smile.gif

I watched part of the Cricut thing on the shopping channel last night. I was honestly getting mad watching it. She kept repeating how 'I made this cake in 20 minutes', 'It is so easy that anyone can make cakes now'. Seriously I would like to see just anyone bake, torte, fill, frost and fondant a cake perfectly. I think the things you could do with this are amazing, but I would hate for someone to look at my cake and think anyone could do it and in 20 minutes after i spent 8 hours from start to finish.

And then I come on here and most people talk about the trial and error and getting thigs just right so they cut smoothly, and that is people who have at least worked with fondant or gumpaste before. I bet there will be a lot of unhappy cake cricuit buyers.
