Whats the deal w/ cake... Is it a special blade or mat or what?? I would assume I'd need a new mat, no one wants to eat paper fuzzy's!!

The cake uses a different mat (not sticky) and a different blade (food grade).

I understand that the rollers are placed differently. The paper cricut rollers would squish the fondant.

Are you actually cutting with a Cricut CAKE machine, or are you hoping to 'morph' a paper machine into cutting fondant, etc?? There's a BIG difference!
Cake Machine:
*The blade has a much longer cutting surface than even the Deep Cut blade, and the blade a**embly won't fit into a paper machine [it has 2 bumps on the sides of the blade holder - now, I supposed you try to file them off....] I'm not at all sure you can even buy just the cake blade a**embly.......
*Has covers for the top and around the cart spot so that you don't get them gooey or jammed with dry bits.
*Under the rollers it's smooth, again to prevent messes
*The roller doesn't have the little grey 'circles' on it - it'd dent the fondant
*Mats are not sticky

The Cake machine IS an Expression as far as the functions go - you can easily put a paper blade into the Cake machine and with paper mats, you now have a regular - but pretty - Expression...

Did any of that you??
