The Home Shopping Network — home to Wolfgang Puck, etc. — just added another famous face to its repertoire. Yesterday morning, Martha Stewart made her first live appearance on the network to debut her eponymous line of baking and craft products.
Her first item of sale? The Martha Stewart Cricut Cake Martha Stewart Crafts Edition, a cake decorating machine and electronic cutter that is said to save time when cutting gum paste, fondant, frosting sheets, cookie dough, etc. So not only will you be able to pretend you're Martha Stewart in the kitchen, you can actually bake some serious sweet treats — wedding cakes, birthday cakes, designer cupcakes, detailed cookies — using cartridges designed by Martha herself. If you've already perfected your cake technique (or cake-nique, for short), Martha will also introduce essential craft tools like the Essential Tool Kit, Essential Glitter Kit and the Essential Punch Kit. Guess Martha's not kidding about the essential part.
Just a few hours after Martha's debut, her Cricut Cake Machine — priced at $349.95 each, mind you — sold out. If sales like that continue, Martha just might add her name to HSN's top ten best-selling culinary products of all time, dominated by who else? Wolfgang Puck. Here's the list a of the Home Shopping Networks Top 10 Best-Selling Culinary Items, in no particular order.
