    My wife and I just bought a Cricket Cake and since it is a Christmas gift we won’t be trying it out until after of course Christmas. We do projects with the kidlets and they love it. We have the older smaller version of the Cricket, I think you call it the Bug and we have linked it up with the Gypsy that we just bought 6 months ago. Have you ever heard of anyone converting the cricket cake to cut paper. We have the deep cut blade holder and blade for the Bug. Dying to hear back from you.
    Great work on your site.

    1. Hey Bob,
      Yes, many people have turned their Cricut Cake into a paper cutting Cricut. It can be done. The only drawback for many people is that it sort of nulls the whole idea of food safety that the Cake is known for. 😉
      I think it’s awesome that your whole family is enjoying using the Cricut. 🙂 I’m looking forward to buying the Cricut Cake Mini (even though I made myself a Fake). 😀

  16. Bob Thomas says:

    Fantastic. The BUG has size limitations in that the mat is only 12 inches and the Gypsy allows us to take full advantage of any size dependant upon the mat.
    With the cake I get 24 inches. Can hardly wait for Christmas.

    What exactly do I need to purchase to change a small cricut to a mini fake ??? Just blades or do I need the deep cut housing ?? Kinda confused :Z

    1. Angelztrazurez,
      In the video I used the Deep Blade Housing and deep cut blade. I used the Expression, but I don’t think it would be any different for the smaller Cricut. 😉 Before you buy the deep cut housing, try the regular one just to see how it works for you. Also, you don’t have to cut off the rollers, just roll them to the sides. 😉
      Best of luck!
