Craft Product Review: Cricut Cake, part 3: Cheese & Bologna


OK, so this is kind of weird- but I wanted to see if the Cricut Cake would cut out bologna & cheese. In other words, something very different from the Fondant and Frosting Sheets that I’d tried out previously.

The good news- cutting bologna and pre-wrapped cheese slices (such a Kraft Singles) proved to be easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy! Really. It was as simple as placing the bologna & cheese onto a lightly-greased mat. (Remember, Crisco is preferred, and it’s really best to apply with a pastry brush.) No chilling was necessary for this at all. SWEET!

See that fruit roll-up on the sheet? Ignore it for now!

Then load your mat & choose your image. I picked the cut cowboy hat from the “Birthday Cakes” cartridge.Then CUT!

We'll talk about the Fruit Roll-Up debaucle tomorrow.

Now isn’t that super-cute?? I can imagine serving these at a kid’s party or playdate. I might also cut a round circle of cheese to fit these Archer Farms Sandwich Thins, then place the cutie stuff on top.

Here are a few more images I tried:

So, folks- that’s all to report on THIS topic. Now if Oscar Meyer only made jumbo bologna sheets- ya think we could convince them???

    I’m not seeing any pics on this post but you have inspired me to try something like this for my foster kids.

  2. says

    Kymberlee- thanks for letting me know! For some reason WP removed all my photos– but I just put them back in. Thanks SO much!

  3. says

    These are too cute. I think it’s grand that all this stuff can be cut besides frosting stuff. This, to me, makes the Cricut Cake worth the price.

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve been wanting to try this but sidetracked by looking at bento box lunches. This really makes the possibilites endless :)

    Interesting… I don’t think that I would have tried this on my own- but it would definitely be cute for a kids party or something… how does the bologna and cheese taste with the crisco residue on the back side of it? Can you even taste it?

  6. says

    Samantha- no, you can’t taste that little bit of Crisco. After all, bologna & cheese have a little greasy mouth feel to begin with…not noticeable at all!

  7. Debbie says

    I really like how the cheese and bologna came out would be really cute on crackers for a party!
