I finally got to play with my new Cake machine today while my kiddos were at preschool. I learned a lot and I really like the machine. I did learn real quick not to go outside the white lines on your mat with the gumpaste. It gums up the rollers...Eeee! I also need to get a good spatula to remove the cut items from the mat. I was also having trouble with a thin flourish I cut out. It cut great but then when I went to put it on the cake it lost it's shape and became a big mess. So, I'll have to do some homework and see if there are tips and tricks to this. If anyone is in the know please leave me a comment :-)
I used the Cake Basics cart. Butterfly cut at 4" and the flowers cut at 1",2", and 3" (I think :-)
I feel pretty good about my first attempt. It'll be fun to continue to use and learn the ins and outs of this machine. I also want to try fondant, too.
Thanks for looking! I love comments!
