I use the cake basics and birthday cakes alot. I also have the elegant cakes and holiday cakes and havent used either of those. I do suggest getting the cricut cake tool kit also. It comes in very handy icon_smile.gif There is a learning curve but you just have to keep trying. If you have any other questions let me know. icon_smile.gif

If you want the cartridges for cheaper, check Amazon.com. They have very good prices on them, from $15-30 compared to 89.99. this is only on a few of them, but it includes all the "cake" dedicated ones.

I wish you loads of fun, I know I love my cricut!

I also have the regular cricut cake and I really like it. I had to play with it at first to figure out how to get it to cut fondant without it stretching too bad. After lots of online research and trial and error, I found out that if you put your fondant in the freezer for like 5 minutes, after you roll it onto the cutting mat, and then cut it immediately after you take it out of the freezer, it works a lot better and you actually get the shapes that you are looking for instead of some stretched version. Just an FYI. icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Quebec Girl and Vlmtz. I found a few on Amazon that I am going to order. Do you guys know if any of the craft stores honor the coupons for the cartridges because I have quite a few for Joann.

Generally the stores don't let you apply their coupons toward cricut items.

That is correct. Read the small print, it will specifically say that it does not apply to cricut machines or cartriges. That being said, every once in a while there is a coupon that can be used, or they have a sale where they are about 50% off. Sign up for the newsletter if you haven't already.

I started using Wilton fondant and a bit of gum paste or just the Wilton fondant by itself and it works without the freezer step, I get nice clean cuts. I find that attempting to work with MMF is for days where you have lots of time on your hands or desings that are big and not intricate. If you do not let it freeze/harden enough the material will move around with the blade, if it gets too hard it will not stick to the mat anymore.

I have not had the opportunity to try other brands of fondant, my first pail of Satin Ice remains sealed for now.

For fine desings that were cut correctly, I let them dry a bit or I down right freeze them hard before I attempt to move them at all, otherwise you will ruin your delicate design.
