and YES you can use this machine to cut paper. I suggest you use/buy Cricut deep cutting blade ( blue)
and also buy a new mat that works with paper,cricut mat
Does Cricut Cake Machine Work With Paper?
Yes they do. The kit machine comes with Cake decorating cartridges, mat and blade for cutting fondant- but is same machine- works exactly the same as regular Cricut. I am not a huge fan of Cricut but for 29 bucks you cant go wrong- worse case scenario you have a machine with cartridges you can use to make cup cake toppers, etc.
I have a girlfriend who has a 12 year old daughter that loves to bake- especially cupcakes- and this would make a great Christmas gift for her.
Amazon also has the larger Cricut Cake Personal Electronic Cutter with a 12 inch wide cutting space for 89.00. Again same as regular Cricut but meed new blades and a mat.
