I just got the Cricut Cake Mini the other day and played around with it. My first impression of the Cricut is that it's very handy.
I especially like that you can queue up different designs and do other things while waiting for the Cricut to finish your work for you. The cuts aren't always perfect but what is?
As The Hammer always says, "It's the little imperfections that make the whole project perfect."
I made these flower decorations with fondant. Some will use gumpaste, which I'll have to try next time, but I went with fondant for these cupcakes. Also, fondant generally tastes better than gumpaste.
