The Cake Mini is the one that is the same machine as the Create. It's just missing the center roller, and all of the parts are "protected/food safe." I have been tempted to remove all of the food safe parts (temporarily) and replace them with regular Cricut parts so that I can bring it to crops. It would be a lot easier than lugging my E. I would only be cutting paper, after all, not toxic waste. I could use it as a Cake machine afterwards.
