Why you should want this Wilton cake decorating set

Updated on August 22, 2014

My Mom took a cake decorating course at a local, Northeast Ohio shop called Sugar Showcase back in the 1970's. She learned so much and loved to experiment with different techniques on her own as well.

Mom then made wedding cakes for so many people and folks loved her work !

She made the wedding cakes for both my brother's and my weddings. Big, intricate, fancy cakes and so yummy too.

You don't have to want to design and make wedding cakes to want this kit !

You could use it and become the party cake go to person, cookie designer or a cupcake design master and start your own business if you like.

But, best of all, you could get this Wilton kit to learn to make tasty and pretty goodies just for your family and friends. This would be a wonderful way to spend time with your friends and the kids too. You and your friends could practice your technique while letting the kids use the decorating supplies to jazz up their own cookies and cupcakes... and then all of you get to eat your work which is always fun.

You wont have to take a class as there are instructions with this kit, but you still could if you want as it would be so much fun to share ideas and chat with other folks who want to learn too !

Here's some of what comes in this kit:

Several different decorating tips for making all sorts of flowers like sweet peas and roses, petals, leaves, stars, basket weave, lines... *Make sure you use your Practice Board to get the hang of making these before you try and decorate a cake or you probably wont like the results.

Icing colors in yellow, red, blue and green which can be blended to make so many other colors

Flower Nail for making roses and other larger 3D items

18 disposable icing (or other soft filling like cream for donuts or melted chocolate) Bags

1 reusable icing (or other soft filling) Bag

1 angled spatula for spreading icing and making swirls

Practice board and a Beginner's Guide book to get you started

Since you will have some extra room in this Wilton decorating kit for some other fun to try doo-dads, here is another item that you might want to add to your set to give you a little more flexibility with your decorating.

Wilton 2104-1358 Disposable 12-inch Decorating Bags, 24/ Pack
Wilton 2104-1358 Disposable 12-inch Decorating Bags, 24/ Pack
