Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

Does anyone know if the roller bar on the cricut machine have the rubber paper guides removed when used for cake decorating? If not I can't figure out how to make it work. Does anyone know?  Can modeling chocolate, gum paste and fondant all be used? 

Thank you for any input

Linda,
When using the Expression you can cut the rubber rollers in the center of the metal bar(what we did). I have heard of people just moving them to one side or the other, but have not done this myself. The best thing to use is gumpaste or modeling chocolate. The expression does not work very easily if at all with fondant. If you check out my blog we cut many different types of materials with both the expression and the cake machine. Hope this helps.

yes they remove the guides, went to a demo on it. They used gumpaste ran through the sheeter 12 times than put in the cricut
The Two Sweet Sisters said that they used modeling chocolate some too...at their demo on Saturday...they only use Linda McClure's gumpaste though...it stays flexible for putting it on the cake....most other gumpaste would not. They also said that they put sheets of it in the freezer on the mats inside of plastic zip bags for future use. And they say that you MUST scrub the sticky off of the mat and grease it well with solid shortening before you use the mat. The recommend pushing the rollers aside if you want to keep the warranty on the machine. I didn't think I would use one but after the demo I'm having second thoughts...love the idea of using it for monograms...I hate those
I have Linda's DVD but did not get a recipe for her gumpaste. How do I get that too? Thanks

You can use any electronic cutter for cake decorating. They key is the blade holder. We sell the Silhouette Cameo with a modified blade holder that works the best for cutting gum paste or icing sheets. The rubber O rings can be moved to the side. If you only cut icing sheets this is not necessary, but if you are cutting gum paste then the rubber o rings need to be moved or cut off.

Fondant is much too soft for this technique. The recipe that I developed for this technique works the best. You can find several videos on youtube that I have done to help teach this method.

I also have written tutorials on my blog at www.creativedesignsforcakes.blogspot.com

 

This cake is an example of a recent wedding cake I made using Silhouettes print and cut feature and Icing Image premium icing sheets.

 

 

Hi,

I bought my wife a cameo and the cutter set a few months back and we haven't been able to get it to cut gum paste (Linda's recipe from the DVD). Whenever we try to cut, it just picks up the paste and chews it up.

Any suggestions as to what we're doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Linda, I have been thinking about you! We have got to catch up! That cake is beautiful! I will call you this week. Missing our chats!

Paul:  (This is Jeff) Send Linda a note using the email address on the web site, describing what's happening, and she can help you sort it out.

I know it has to be very thin ! almost like paper ! and you need a very sm, amount of Crisco , but put it on than wipe it with paper towel ! , I have one also  not using it at all , ; (( not my fav thing , the time it takes to set it up and cut , you can have many pc's from a mold done ! I used mine once in the last 3 yr's !
