Using Silhouette Cameo to cut Gum Paste

Joined Apr 25, 2017
Hello :)

We recently bought a Silhouette Cameo to cut gum paste for cake decorating at our bakery, we were thrilled. However it seems that no matter what we try, the gum paste is getting caught in the blade and jut tearing through the paste not leaving a trace or hint of a design, (and we just tried a square). 

So far we have tried,

Rolling the gum paste until it is practically see through

adjusting blade depth and thickness settings

Letting the gum paste sit on the cutting mat for a half hour before cutting.

Does anyone else have any experience they would love to share to kindly with me? Is there a different type of blade that is better with the gum paste I could try?

Thanks soooooooo much for any advice I can get, Michelle - The Invermere Bakery

I haven't used one myself, but this site has some info. Apparently the blade that comes with the Silhouette won't work with gumpaste. This site has an accessory pack to modify it.
