Oh, you'll hanve problems util you learn how to use it, don't kid yourself. It isn't as easy as the commercials make it look. You have to be willing to take the time to learn how to use it.

There is definately a lot of trial and error. It's not as easy as taking it out of the box and making perfect cuts every time. If you don't have patience it isn't the machine for you.

If you have the scrapbooking cricut it will work perfectly. The method was invented using the Cricut Expression. I took a class and we used the Cricut Create (small cricut) and it worked perfectly. I have the first DVD that shows how to modify the cricut machine. You don't need to invest in a new machine, what you have will work.

AS long as you don't use glitter paper in your scrapbooking cricut you can use it.

Yes, you need the deep cut housing and blade. I used the cricut expression for gumpaste and fondant with tylose. You need to clean the blade often as the fondant/gumpste will build up in it.

Also Ladies... Michael's confirmed finally that it is being discontinued (Cake Cricut) what they won't say is if there is new one coming out which I have read a low buzz about online. There is a video on youtube on how to convert a cricut expression into a cricut cake. I have the personal cutter (the small one) and after cutting out cupcake wrappers, the card stock left behind some "fuzz" so I won't be running any gum paste thru that machine.... I have the cricut cake under the tree so on dec 26th I will report back on my experiences lol!

I really don't post here often but wanted to ask a question about the cricut cake as I just got one...kind of "meant to be" situation. Michaels here in Canada had them for $249. they also had the cartridges for $20. but none in stock so I got a rain check.
Long story short I was in Michaels today asking aobu the rain check and was told "Michaels will no longer be selling the CAKE cricut, Martha Stewart now has the machine." That is why the machines and cartridges etc. are all selling so cheaply, I was able to get the last of their blades (3 packages of 2) for $5. Wish they had the mat's left!
Apparently the Martha mats and cartridges WILL fit the cake cricut. The Provo Craft site still lists it and it's supplies.
I was able to get cartridges on-line for $20. (US) each, hope the shipping won't kill me!
I've never used one of those machines so I expect quite a learning curve to it. I am excited about the possibilities with it though.
So in this area, Walmart is the only place to get them for $299.
