Using My MS Cricut Cake

So I finally used my Cricut Cake. I was so nervous that either I wouldn't know how to use it or that I would be dissapointed with it, but nonetheless, IT WORKED GREAT. I'm making 3 (YES! I SAID 3!!!) cakes this weekend and I needed some of the figures for one of the cakes in gumpaste and to harden by the time I add them to the cake.

I'm making:

1. Turtle Cake
2. Half Tom and Jerry Half Spongebob Tiered cake
3. Runner Tiered Cake

So this little guy was made for the topper of the Runner Cake. I can't wait until all 3 cakes are finished. Here's the process I did.

I used the Martha Stewart Cricut Cake with the Going Places Cartridge

I got 1 part gumpaste to 1 part chocolate fondant

I mixed it ver well until it was an even color and soft

I used the Cricut Cake brush to add on some shortening onto my mat

I rolled the fondant/gumpaste thinly.

I then put it on my mat and cut the image I wanted

Here's the cut image. I cut the image twice.

I then added toothpicks and layered the running man.

I can't wait to show you the finished products! I'm so excited! By the way if you don't have the Cricut Cake Tool Set I really recommend it. HSN has it on clearance for 17.95 plus shipping. My total was about $25!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Baking!
