Cricut Gelly Pens














I ordered the Cricut Gelly's and since I'm a tools and gadgets kinda gal. I just had to try them out. My order came this week and so I got to play a little with them.

I do like them, they are a little pricey. I think the creation and machineing to create the holder is the expenseive piece. I do see potiential for useing them. The Pink Stamper has a video and samples as does Dan99 so check them out.

Awhile back i got Mike's from the Cricut boards jigs for pens and they also work fine, the 4 jigs were about the same price as the gelly set, it does allow you to use different diam. pens and a mini sharpie is what I have used the most.

Cakes...

Well I played with some old fondant Kevin had here today, it works kinda. I had an old mat to clean up useing GooGone spray, took about 3-5 min and all the adhesive just scraped right off with a Pampered Chef scrapper. I marked it FOOD on the back. Now I'm in search for a pasta machine, rolling it thin was harder than I thought. I checked the store close to me but no one has one. Thats what happens when you live in a rural area. Next trip to Denver I will find one - I'm on a mission to try out Linda's gumpaste receipe with my cricut to make a cute cake.

My future chef... is otherwise involved at the moment however.

Cricut Cakes

I just watched the dvd's by Linda on how
to cut gumpaste with the Cricut.
Very informative DVD's
and worth the $34.95 plus shipping.
Want one? Look for me at the
Valley Forge PA CKC show July30-Aug1.
"Creative Designs" is a 2-disc DVD set that introduces you to a great new technique for creating wonderful, unique decorations that truly make your cakes one-of-a-kind creations. I take you through an introduction to the technique and then decorate two cakes, demonstrating just how easy it is to really expand your decorating. This two and a half hour video will help you take your cake decorating to exciting new levels.
When Kevin and I get some samples made next week I hope after whea harvest is done, I'll post photos.
