St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
Interactive multichannel retailer HSN announces the upcoming world launch of the Cricut CakeTM Personal Electronic Cutter from creative technology leader Provo Craft.
Building on the tremendous success of its innovative Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter line, Provo Craft developed this unique confectionary cutting machine for bakers and crafters alike. An electronic cutter specifically designed for decorating cakes, cupcakes, cookies and confections, Cricut Cake will be available for sale on hsn.com beginning April 12, with an official launch on HSN on April 14, 2010 at 12:01 AM (ET).
"We are excited to partner with Provo Craft to introduce Cricut Cake and reinforce our strategy of offering culinary crafters everywhere innovative and unique products,” said Nancy Caplan, SVP of Merchandising. "Provo Craft represents the quality and innovation that customers have come to expect from HSN and the launch of this exciting new decorating device upholds that tradition."
"Launching new innovations like Cricut Cake on HSN gives us the perfect platform to educate, market and sell our products to a highly engaged consumer," states Provo Craft Chief Marketing Officer Matt Wilburn. "Our partnership has been a successful one and we look forward to introducing other exciting products with HSN in the future."
The Cricut Cake is an easy-to-use personal electronic cutter designed to cut gum paste, fondant and other edible materials, while providing precise, professional-looking results every time. Accompanied by the Cricut Cake Basics cartridge, featuring hundreds of images for cake decorating, the Cricut Cake is designed to work with pre-existing Cricut cartridges as well as Provo Craft's Gypsy and Cricut Design Studio software. The wide array of shapes, fonts and designs found on compatible cartridges makes the Cricut Cake perfect for all culinary decorating occasions, including birthdays, graduations, weddings and holidays.
The machine is similar in design to the existing Cricut cutting machine; however, specific modifications have been made; stainless steel dials, trim, cutting blade and roller, to make it safe for use with food. Additionally, the keypad features a full silicone cover to protect the screen and allow for easy clean-up.
The HSN-exclusive bundle includes the Cricut Cake, a 12x12 food safe mat, cartridge skirt, cleaning brush, blade cleaning basket, Cake Basics cartridge, the Elegant Cake cartridge as well as icing sheets. The bundle will retail for $429.95.
