Cricut Cake - Cupcakes

My Cricut Cake arrived late last week and I finally had a chance to play with it today!  I made some simple cupcakes with chocolate icing and tried cutting both gum paste and fondant.  I found the gum paste was quite hard to work with, but the cuts turned out a lot nicer.  I mixed a bit of pink colouring with the Wilton gum paste and it was really hard to get it all a uniform colour, but it turned a pretty shade of pink after a lot of kneading!  The pink butterflies were made with the gum paste.  The green flowers were made with Wilton fondant.  This was so much softer and easier to work with, but the cuts didn't turn out as great.  It was fun experimenting though!
