Do you know if there's a lot of free files out there online to get? Those cartridges are insanely priced.

If you get the Sure Cuts a Lot software, you can use regular graphics off the web. The software will trace around the image and create its own cut file. Sometimes I will have to clean up the graphics or recolor them a bit, but its really not that hard.

You can also use Make The Cut software. I find it more user friendly.

Does anyone know if the cricut machines intended for paper and scrapbooking can be used for fondant sheets? If they can, is there an advantage to getting the cake machine over the regular machine (which is always cheaper on sale)?

I had the same question and found a video on youtube using the regular machine with gum paste, i'm not sure if works with fondant.

I've cut fondant with my regular cricut. I just moved over the rubber rings on the bar so it wouldn't make marks in the fondant, and I replaced the regular blade with the deep cut blade and housing. worked fairly well, but I think I need more practice.

You will need to get the deep cut housing and deep cut blade for the regular cricut to get it to work properly. And clean the blade between cuts.

I only know that the inkscape is what the guy who does the youtube thing on surecutsalot tells you to download this so you can save svg files that you need use with that program.......it works very easy

You don't need svg files with Make The Cut. Use images from the internet or scanned images just as they are.
