Meet the Cricut Cake

I made a card earlier with the Cricut Cake and realized it would be a good idea to put some more information about the Cricut Cake in a different post rather than with the card.'s the scoop and some pictures of me opening it up.

In this first picture you can see the new mat. It's not sticky like the original mat, because you are going to be putting food on it so you wouldn't want it sticky, LOL.

It says it's not dishwasher safe...I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to put it in my dishwasher anyway -- too much space, hahaha. It also says not microwavable, hmmmmm... I wonder who was going to do that??? LOL. Besides, it's really easy to clean with a little sudsy water.

Here it is, sneaking out of its box -- you can see the red trying to burst through its protective skin....heeheehee

....and here we go

Isn't it sweet!

It uses the same cartridges as all the other Cricut machines. It's the same size and has many of the same features as the Cricut Expression. It uses food grade mats and stainless steel blades. All surfaces that food touches are food grade. It's a cool candy apple red -- some of you might even have other appliances in your kitchen in the same color.

Provo Craft took extra care to make sure the new Cricut Cake was protected. There are silicone sleeves that fit over the cartridge area and a covering for the top as well. There is additional seals where ever food might come in contact with the machine. They changed the blade and housing assembly to accommodate the different needs of frosting and other items that you can cut with the new Cricut -- you can even cut shapes in things like bologna, cheese or very thin rolled cookie dough.

A little more about the Cricut Cake:

The four brand new cartridges for the cake are: Cake Basics (comes with the Cake), Birthday Cakes, Elegant Cakes, and Holiday Cakes -- but remember you can use these with your other Cricut machines too (make cards, party favors or whatever you can dream).

Ask me questions, I'll do the best to answer 'em. :)
