Does it work well with fondant you roll out? I don't have the patience or cash to waste if it's not really gong to make life easier.



Tiggy likes hers, mine isn't used much at all. I do primarily wedding cakes, so unless a bride wants a very specific pattern at that I have on the cricut or can put on the SCAL I can't use it for my cakes. I think it just depends on what kind of cakes you use it for and what tolerance you have for the learning curve, since it works differently for everyone depending on your gumpaste, humidity, and every other factor you have to take into account.

For me personally it's not really worth the time, but I keep thinking that it will be so I'm not selling it yet. I've used it to make stencils more than to make decorations out of gumpaste etc. It also works well with the icing sheets and rice paper.

It doesn't work well with straight fondant, it's too soft. I've had good luck adding tylose to Wilton fondant, rolling it very, very thin, and letting it sit for awhile before cutting. The smaller the design the longer it needs to sit (dry) before cutting.

OH! Would you recommend using the scrap booking circuit with fondant? If not then have you seen any good deals? I can get on a circuit?

I just watched the video and I was wondering, how hard is it to thoroughly clean this sucker?

Nobody has answered the question about sizing. Will the machine enlarge or reduce the size of the designs? Or does the cartridges or whatever they are called have the same design in different sizes?
If you can't find time it do it right..how will you find time to do it over?

Thanks costumeczar......I have asked this question many times but never got any feedback. It was going to be a big factor in whether or not I bought the machine.

ALL of the Cricut machines are made from the exact same materials. They are all food safe, but Provo Craft promotes the Cricut cake as the only machine to use for food. Use what ever machine you have, they all work the same with great results.

The only difference between the two machines is the blade housing. The one for the cake cricut is enclosed so nothing can get caught inside of it. And no, it doesn't the fit the expression unless you cut the tabs off.
