Cricut Cake is a new machine especially designed for cakers which will debut this spring! You can take a sheet of fondant or gumpaste, roll out the medium on a special mat, place in the feeder, and using the Cricut Cake machine cartridges, cut a number of intricate designs, pull the cut fondant or gumpaste designs from the special mat, and affix directly on a cake or cupcake!
Words, cute critters, scrollwork--any design you think of can be cut with precision with this nifty little machine! There is a video available on the subject, and a few YouTube tutorials using the current Cricut Expressions machine. Although the Cricut cartridges are said to be pricey, if you search long enough online there are companies and websites out there which reportedly offer affordable or even free software that is compatible with Cricut Expressions and probably Cricut Cake as well. A great idea for cupcakers and cakers alike.
