Cricut Cake Machine
Provocraft has done it once again with the new Cricut Cake Machine, bringing the beauty of professionally done cakes to your kitchen. Any kind of decoration that you can imagine can be cut out from rolled out gum paste. Names, phrases and images come out in seconds and easily attach to the cake surface.
The fonts available range from letters with a flourish to connected script that will accent any cake beautifully. Professionals have to use pastry bags in order to do lettering, and this takes experience to become skilled at. This is no longer true, as the Cricut Cake Machine puts years of experience into a machine that does the same work in minutes. You can print out phrases such as: “birthday,” “groom,” “love,” and many more. In addition, the Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge that comes with the set has an endless amount of images from birds, hearts, flowers, designs and a plethora of others that can be combined to make any theme come to life. There are also numerous creative features to accent the font and images for a greater effect.
To operate the machine, you roll the gum paste flat, lay it onto the cutting mat, insert in the machine and choose your design. The machine cuts it out, and you can easily mount the design directly onto the cake. You can even use any of the other cartridges from the Cricut line as well to add even more decorating options.
For your next anniversary, make your spouse a surprise cake that features phrases connected with you both. You can print out “Happy Anniversary” and similar phrases that can be put right onto the cake. Use the same color to make the decoration consistent, or you can mix and match them for a unique twist on the design. Then, purchase a blank white cake box from a local bakery and use your Cricut Expression machine to print out “Happy Anniversary” on card stock. Glue it onto the top and your spouse will be surprised when they come home.
Also, you can layer designs, such as with flowers, by putting different layers of gum paste on top of one another. The flower petals can be pulled slightly forward to give them a more three-dimensional look. This is wonderful when you are trying to make a birthday cake for a child. You can print out characters of all types from various cartridges, including: superheroes, princesses, animals and so many others. You can easily make a themed cake to match your child’s interests without having to pay a fortune. You can now do in minutes what the professionals have been doing for years.
