Cake decorating made easy

The Provo Craft Cricut Cake is an automated cutting tool that produces edible creations. Designed to be used for cake decorating, the food-safe gadget uses a cartridge system to allow for use with many different themes.

Produces the sweetest fonts ever printed.

Cake has a remarkable way of bringing people together. It's hard not to enjoy it when a cake is unveiled or brought into the room. Except cake alone only goes so far. While the effect a cake can have on a gathering is certainly tangible, the effect a masterfully created cake has is much more pronounced. Too bad those professional-looking cakes are so hard to produce. Or are they?

The Provo Craft Cricut Cake takes cake decorating to a whole new level. At the press of a button, sheets of fondant can be cut into any number of preselected shapes or fonts. That is, the Cricut Cake is basically a cake printer. No, it won't magically produce cakes like the Easy-Bake Oven, but what it will do is make cake decorating a whole lot easier.

Different cartridges are sold separately, each one containing fonts and designs specifically tailored for a theme. Decorating a cake for a child's birthday party? Get the birthday-cakes cartridge and print out edible robots and princesses to decorate the cake with. Other cartridges are available for occasions such as weddings and holidays.

Designed to be used to create images and phrases from frosting sheets, gum paste, and fondant for baked goods, the automatic cutting tool features food-safe plastic or stainless steel in all parts that come in contact with edibles. Don't try this with your normal printer at home.
