NEW ANNOUNCEMENT…The Cricut Cake
Ok…ARE YOU FREAKING OUT?!!! Provo Craft’s Newest Item…The Cricut Cake. You knew you could cut gum paste with your regular Cricut, right? Well, it’s true. If you’re not too excited about trying that out in your pricey regular machine…Provo Craft has come out with one that is made JUST FOR CAKE DECORATING!! I’m going to have to get one of these! I just wish it didn’t look just like my red Cricut. What if I shove cake stuff into the wrong one? I’d love to see this in a variety of colors. 😀
Do you think this is cool? How much do you think it will cost? My guess…$299 (their favorite price, LOL)
I think I might require one of these…how cool!
I am not, I repeat, I am not making the wedding cake. But that might be a good excuse to just buy one of these to play with………..No I am not making the wedding cake…….Ummmmmm well maybe I could……LOL
…wedding cake…wedding cake…a beautiful Cricut cut wedding cake…I think I’m seeing that in your future Marlene! LOL
Those cakes are gorgeous!
~Joy~ you’re going to have to post your first cake…after you purchase this….which we know you will do!
LOL Karen…who me? Yeah…I think I’ll have to get this
toyimportant piece of equipment that no one could possibly live without. LOL 😀
OMG! I soooooooooo want to try this! Joy, have you tried to cut the gum paste with your “regular” Cricut? If so, do you have any of your famous Joy directions on how to do that somewhere? 🙂
I have not yet tried the gum paste in my regular non-cake 😉 Cricut. I do have 2 Expressions now though and am thinking about giving it a shot with the older one. That way I don’t have to freak out too much if it turns into a lumpy mess. I did just find a good deal on gum paste on Amazon though. 😀 Wilton Ready To Use Gum Paste and it’s part of their 4for3 deals too! 😀 I think I’ll give this a try within the next 2 weeks and do a whole post on how it turns out! 😉 (Even if it is a lumpy mess!)
I may be in trouble. I may have to buy this one and leave it at my other daughter’s………lol she likes to bake.
Besides loving this site and reading all the feedback everyone shares… Just found it & joined today!!
I have a question???? Forgive me if it’s a stupid one…. I know that the Cake is compatible with all the cartridges….
But does the Expressions Cake do all the scrapbooking (vinyl cutting, etc) that the Cricut Expressions already does?? I just got laid off and am going to have my first baby in 18 days. Yes 18 days….. and would love to get back into scrapbooking and get into cake decorating too… now that I have more time! So I was thinking of investing in the Cricut Cake instead of the Expressions.
Thanks for all input in advance!!!
You can cut paper and vinyl in the Cake, but I’m not sure how much trouble it would be to do that since the rollers in the Cricut Cake are absent. That’s so they don’t mar the gum paste. According to Provo Craft, your not supposed to use paper and other items in the Cake because the Cake is “food safe”. Using other things in it would sort of contaminate it for food. Now, what many people think about that is, “So what?”. People have been using the Expression and other Cricuts for years to cut gum paste. Overall, it is possible, but not recommended. I hope that helps!
Thanks for joining my site! 😀
I, like the other girl that wants to have it all, cake and expression but can’t afford both, want to do the expression type things with an occasional cake is that possible if I disregard the foodsafe issues? If I plan to do the expression stuff the most but want to do a cake here and there then should I get the Cake one.
Thanks for any help
Yes, you can cut gum paste and fondant with a regular Cricut. Any of the Cricuts will do this, but as you mentioned, only the Cricut Cake is food safe. If you cut the plastic off of the rollers on your Cricut (I haven’t done this, but have heard…) then you can use it to make food items. You can leave the plastic rollers on, but they will roll over your food. People have been doing this for years! 😀 Now it will ruin your warranty, but if that’s not a worry it is certainly doable! 😉
