First cake using my Martha Stewart Cake Machine
Well, here it is. My first cake decorated using the Martha Stewart Cricut Cake Machine that I won from the Cricut Circle blog. Yes, I cheated a bit. I bought an undecorated cake from my local supermarket and just had them put the chocolate border along the bottom. My Mom said that since I have the machine, that I could make a "decorated" dessert for Thanksgiving dinner. I used the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge for the Happy Harvest and the acorn medallions.
There is definitely a HUGE learning curve using a different medium other than paper. At least I know how the machine works, I just didn't know how the fondant would work. I think it will get easier the more I work with it. Next I want to try cutting sugar cookie dough for Christmas cookies and Gingerbread cookies! I will post pictures when I try that!
Since this is my first try at cake decorating, please let me know what you think. And let me know if you have any tips that I can use the next time I use the machine.
Thanks for stopping and I hope everyone has a GREAT Thanksgiving! Bye!
