I ordered and received a Cricut Cake Mini a few weeks ago and I do really really like it. However, getting the images to come out nice enough to use is kind of hit or miss. What am I doing wrong? How do I figure out what the correct pressure and speed is for each design? Many times, the blade drags the material and ruins the piece.... or it just smashes it all up.... or the edges are super rough.... I just can't seem to get the hang of it.

I have tried it with both gumpaste and mmfondant. I seem to have more luck with the gumpaste but still can't seem to get it down quite right. Is slower better? Is more pressure best? I just need some help!! :)

Thanks so much!!!!

Go to cricut.com and on the homepage, you can sign up for a free online class to be held tomorrow and Thursday.

I haven't used my Cake much, but more pressure is only going to cause the blade and housing unit to press into the fondant/gumpaste more.
There are lots of tips and tricks in the Cake forum.
