I just scored a deal and wanted to pass along the news in case anyone else is interested. I headed out to my local Michael's this morning to pick up some new cookie cutters and stumbled upon this....
The Provo Craft Cricut Cake machine is on sale for $49.99!!!!!!
Regularly $399.99. Yeap, I'm pretty excited!
The sign did say "while supplies last" and "only at select stores". So it might not be available everywhere. When I was at Michael's last week it was on sale for $99.99. So glad I didn't "bite" on that offer.
From my understanding, Cricut Cake has released a new Martha Stewart edition and they are wanting to get rid of the "old" ones. From what I have read though, there aren't any differences in the machines other than the color - the new Martha version is white instead of red. (I can deal with red for a savings of $350.00!!!) There are different cartridges (Martha designs) in the new one, but I just figured I'll buy those by themselves if I really want them. I'll just start with the cartridge that was included in the box and also with the cartridges I have from my Cricut Expression. Yes, you can use any Cricut cartridge in the cake machine - how cool is that right!?
They also have all the Cricut Cake accessories 80% off. Extra cutting boards, replacement blades, fondant papers, etc. I bought one of everything just so I have it. Like the cutting boards (you can never have too many of those) for $2.60 - regularly $12.99! And if all this good news wasn't enough, they also had all the cake cartridges on sale for $9.99 - regularly $89.99. Yeap, I bought one of each of those too.
Anyone already have the Cricut Cake? Do you like it? Want to share any tips with a new user?
For those interested and in response to the questioning comment below, I dug up my receipt and have included a scan of it. As you can see from the highlighted scan, $49.99 was indeed the price I paid.
