Yes! You heard right. The famous Cricut has released a machine specially designed for cutting intricate cake and cupcake decorations called....you guessed it, the Cricut Cake.
If you are a scrapbooking fanatic like myself, then you've heard of the Cricut. If not, here's a quick recap. The Cricut machine is a DIYer's dream come true, introduced years back by the people at Provo Craft. Their machine will cut intricate scrapbooking patterns out of paper at the press of a button. Giving precious time back to scrapbookers and taking away the calluses. Now, the Cricut designers have carried this genius idea over to the baking world. How does it work?
All you have to do to knock out beautiful designs is load a thin sheet of gumpaste into the machine, select your design, and press cut. Voila! Great for novice bakers who are still working towards becoming the baking artist they dream about. While some may argue that the machine takes the artist out of the creation and that it is technically cheating, I say potatoes, patatoes. Whatever works for you. Check out some of these inspirational photos to see the Cricket Cake in action.
How much you ask? Well, while the Cricut Cake is a steep $400 bucks, if you love to bake and are apt to making gourmet treats, then this machine is the perfect investment for you. To learn more, visit cricut.com.
