Cake Decorating is Fun and Saves Money on Special Occasion Cakes Because You Will be Able to Make Them Instead of Buying Them

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.

She 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 you can learn from online videos, and there are some 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 263 piece decorating 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.

A set that's great for beginners who want to build their skills or the seasoned decorator.

Cake and Cupcake Decorating Extras That are Good to Have on Hand to Be Ready to Go

Since you will have some extra room in this Wilton decorating kit carrier case, look for other flower; leaf; piping and star shaped icing tips; more icing colors to mix and match; support dowel pins and pillars for making tiered cakes; a fountain and/or a bridge set-up is always so pretty; and for some other fun to try do-dads to add to your decorating set to give you a little more flexibility with your dessert decorating.

Maybe find a friend who is also interested in this. My Mom and her friend Marie were known all over this area in the 70's/80's for their fabulous cakes ! They each bought different accessories (fountains/bridges/lights...) and would share them so between them, they had just about everything that you could image to make wonderful wedding cakes. The two helped also each other whenever one of them had a big order to make.

Remember, having extra icing bags; parchment paper and cooling racks on hand is also very important as you never know when you might want to whip up a pretty cake or make some fancy cupcakes or cookies.
