Cake Cricut - Page 7

post #91 of 128
Got my Cricut mini... still 6 more on the shelf. In this small town, that's too many! I wonder why the larger JoAnn's aren't begging them to share! I'll have to watch and see how low these babies go. They're sooooo heavy, they'd probably be pricey to ship.

... and when I called the day after Black Friday they told me $199 - the sale was over... and it was the ONLY Cricut they still had in stock. Now they are wondering if they'll ever sell them. It was a stroke of luck that I even went there yesterday and noticed!

The expression can be modified for use as a Cricut Cake... just remove the runner rings that feed the paper.

What I'm wondering is, can the Cricut Cake also be used for scrapbooking?? =) I have the Cricut Personal, still unopened but I also want to be able to try the Cricut Cake for cake decorating. Can I return my paper-cutting Cricut and buy the Cricut Cake, to have for cake decorating and paper cutting, instead of having to buy both machines.....??

You can use any of the cricut machines for cake decorating or scrapbooking. When I took a class to learn how to use my cricut we used the cricut create in class. It worked just fine and I was able to cut out anything I wanted to. I bought the cricut cake, but it didn't work better or worse, it worked the same as the cricut create. I use my Silhouette for my cake decorating and the cricut cake for scrapbooking, I love the print and cut feature of the Silhouette but I like the cricut to cut out cup cake wrappers.

I bought the cricut cake and have had my ups and downs with it.. so I bought the deep housing blade for cutting paper. So I switch out the blade if I'm cutting food or paper.. I have found it easier for me personally to make a stencil and then use a razor to cut out the fondant/gumpaste images.

Hi. I have been searching high and low for the deep housing blade... Can you kindly send me a message letting me know where you purchased yours? I have been finding it very difficult to get many of the Cricut accessories ! Thanks

it is reccomended to use the deep housing blade as it is a longer blade. It is better for cutting thick paper or gumpaste & fondant. I am having a difficukt time locating it though.

Yes, you definately need it to get good clean cuts. I bought mine on ebay as it was much cheaper as were the replacement blades. They are actually the same blades used in the cake cricut. Wal Mart sells them if you're in a pinch.

I got mine at Michaels but I paid $30 bucks for it.. It's alot cheaper to buy it online through ebay or at amazon. Walmart also sells them and usually all the craft supply stores do too. If you have the cricut cake then you also need to buy the regular sticky cutting mats for paper too. I think I paid $10 bucks for a package of 2.

Mats are cheaper on ebay too icon_smile.gif
