The Cricut Cake Decorating Machine -- How Good is it Really?

by Jillian Leslie on

I'm fascinated by the Cricut Cake Decorating Machine.

For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a food-safe electronic die cutting machine that can be used for cake, cupcake, and cookie decorating.  It's the sister product to the original Cricut paper cutter that most scrapbookers swear by.

Looking into whether the new Cricut lives up to its hype, I found this review by Khris Cochran on DIY Bride and... overall she LOVES it (even with a few caveats).  To read her whole review click here.

And of course, who doesn't want to see some Cricut cakes.  So here are few I found.

But to really see how these things work, you might want to check out this video.

I have to say, I'm impressed.  The one thing that gives me pause is the price.  At $300 (with no extra cartridges) I better be planning to make a whole lot o' cake with it.

If you have any feedback on the Cricut Cake Decorating Machine please post.

    I got the cricut for scrapbooking when it first came out and almost paid 300.00 with 3 cartridges. I have more than got my money worth. The good thing about the cake circut is you can use the cartridges you already have. The price tag is the only thing holding me back. Next year they will be 150-200. I can wait it out.

    I got my brand new cricut cake last January at Michaels' for $49.99. That's right, $49.99. Cartridges were 75-80% off too. For some reason they decided to get rid of inventory. It's a good thing that I waited a little longer after Black Friday's price sale was of $199.
