When you are cutting the Wilton fondant sheet do you leave the plastic sheet on the sheet and cut them both? I try to cut it without the sheet and it was a disatrous. Here I thought I would have a problem with the cookie and I didn't but the fondant that was another story.

Hi. I did cut fondant sheets and I left the fondant on the plastic sheet. It cut just fine. I don't remember the settings but just the fondant cut not the plastic

I did this in June. I cut words do DS and his bride on their wedding cake

Hi - I used a brand new regular cutting mat (the sticky ones) which I will keep just for Cricut Cake use. I placed the Wilton sugar sheet, plastic backing still attached, in the correct position on the mat. Laid a sheet of parchment paper over the sugar sheet and gently pressed it with my rolling pin to make sure there were no bubbles and also to get a good 'stick'. Loaded the mat and selected my images. Med Speed, Med Pressure. It was a dream! The cutouts were perfect! I'll be stocking up Wilton sugar sheets!

So you put the parchment paper on top of the fondant? I wonder if that will help on home made fondant. I am going to try doing the Mashmallow fondant since the sheets are so expensive and they taste like paper.

Did you put shortening on the mat too?

I used the parchment only to protect the sugar sheet from the rolling pin. I did not cut the sheet with the parchment paper on. No - I did not use shortening on the mat as I used a brand new regular Cricut mat (it's sticky). I will only use that mat for food now.

When I played with fondant, I used homemade (Michelle Foster's recipe) on a Cricut Cake mat brushed with shortening. Again I used the parchment to lay over the fondant only so I could go over it again with the rolling pin to smooth out air bubbles and make sure it was stuck down. I trimmed the fondant to within the mat cutting area then let it sit for about an hour. I didn't freeze it first as my designs were quite big 3-4 inches. It cut just fine, however if I were to go smaller in design I would probably try the freezing fix before cutting it.

Next time I play I will try sticking the parchment to the Cricut Cake mat with shortening, and the fondant to the paper before cutting - I think it might make removing the cuts easier and help in positioning them on the actual cake.

I hope this helps :o)

I used the Wilton Sugar Sheets. That is the only thing I have gotten to work. I use the Sugar sheets and keep them on the plastic and attach them to a regular expression (sticky) mat. It doesn't cut through the plastic so there is no contamination between the sugar sheet, Blade and Mat.
Here is a link to a blog posting to some cakes I have made this way.

There are some Birthday cakes and if you scroll down you can see some Christmas cakes.
