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.

  3. Jenny 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!

  4. Cynthia K. 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.

  5. Deirdre Says:

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

  6. Samantha Says:

    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?

  7. Jenny 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!

  8. Debbie Says:

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

  9. Mary HK Says:

    This is great! how fun…thank you so much for testing and sharing this great technique! I also laughed out loud when I read your question about oscar meyer making jumbo bologna sheets ROFLO
