My success with the cricut cake with pic and tips! - Page 3

I haven't had time to play with mine realy so tonight I decided to just try it with one of the frosting sheets.

It cut perfect first try!

I set it to High pressure , mediun speed .

The one thing I think that is crucial is to make sure that whatever you are usng is stuck to the mat really well.

Too much shortening and it will slide and pull , tear, etc. Too little and it will move while cutting.

When you get the right amount it will stick firmly to the mat ( it is hard to push it around, feels like it is glued to the mat)

Here are my first cuts with the frosting sheets.Will try gumpaste in the next day or so cause the frosting sheets taste TERRIBLE!

While I haven't yet ordered the circut cake I have learned a lot about what you can and can not do. Thanks everyone.

I cut 12 of these crowns for cupcakes. I used Wilton fondant. I rolled it out very thin and waited 15 minutes before cutting.

Used expression to cut fondant/gumpaste for cake yesterday, not finished but will send pictures. Husband put hand in front of cake at base trying to fix and add more accents. Yes the blade gets plugged easy. No big deal to clean it. Used gumpaste/fondant mixture. Pretty much cut all day. Found freezing did not work no matter what. I found running through pasta maker, thinning to # 3 on my KA and then letting set 1/2 hour works great. Had rolled out pieces of fondant/gumpaste night before and bagged overnight, did not seem any different then just a few minutes of rest. Medium speed and about a # 3 on blade. Hey guys dumb question. Why does the pressure setting make any difference since the rollers are only touching the mat, not the product?

I have a question - can you upload your own designs to the cricut? Like a company logo, or original drawing or something like that, or do you have to use their cartridge designs?

You can use SCAL or MTC programs to do so.

I can't tell you the best place, but they are selling on ebay around $300.00 with free shipping, and Costco.com is offering them for $300.00 with free shipping. HTH

I have to agree with dreamacres. Freezing didn't help me, but putting the gumpaste through a pasta machine to #3 setting worked.
Dreamacres, did you covered the gumpaste when you let it sit out for 1/2 hour?
