Win a Wilton Cake Decorating Preferred Decorator Set! $99 Value! #HolidayGiftGuide

A few years ago I loved to bake but I didn’t know how to pull it all together. I could make a good cake but as far as decorating it I didn’t go much farther then a tub of frosting and a butter knife. Then I was asked to be a Wilton Mom and everything changed. I flew out to Chicago and they taught me how simple it was to take that same frosting and put it in a bag with a tip and take my decorating to a whole new level.

They didn’t teach me anything that you can’t learn. If you are still looking for a fun gift idea consider giving someone a gift card to Michael’s to go towards taking a cake decorating class. You could even take it with them! How fun would that be?

2012 Wilton Yearbook Cake

I’ve made a few cakes since then too! The very first character cake pan I tried was this SpongeBob cake. It wasn’t perfect and it took me a really long time but it was worth it all. Gavin was absolutely thrilled with it and knowing I made it for him was literally icing on the cake!

For something fun I made this soccer ball cake for an end of season celebration. It’s two cakes put together and was the fastest one I’ve made so far. It was the first time I got to try out the fun grass technique too!

The most recent cake I made was for Sawyer’s 1st birthday. It was the Mickey Mouse cake and it was tricky mainly because a lot of the lines didn’t come through but in the end I think it turned out fabulous!

Also I’m excited to learn how to use the modeling chocolate. I could really use one of those caddies! All my stuff is in Wegman’s bags.

  14. Lyn says

    I have not taken a class, mostly because I haven’t looked into them. I figure there is a charge, and we don’t have it in the budget.

  15. CathyH says

    No, been busy with my home and business but would love to

  16. Nicky says

    I’ve never taken a class, my grandmother owned a cake decorating shop and I learned from her but the tools are expensive.

  32. Nancy says

    I took a Wilton decorating course many years ago when I was a newlywed. I remember learning to freeze your cake before you iced it, brushing away any crumbs. Also you can practice your icing piping techniques on a cookie sheet – you don’t need to make a cake to practice – LOL!

  33. Christina says

  69. stephanie says

    Yes I have! I didn’t get to finish it though because we didn’t have a sitter for the last 2 sessions 🙁 I am hoping I can take it over again but only way that will happen anymore is if they can find someone to teach it. So, I would have to go an hour away to do it.

  70. Michelle Weaver says

    I have not, I’ve never heard of them before.

  71. Nannypanpan says

    I have not, but I have wanted to..but the husband watching the kids has stopped me

    I had never taken a Wilton class, because I was lucky enough to have my mom start my wanting to do cakes (she used to decorate cakes for the birthdays at a nursing home she used to wrlk at when I was a pretween). I dabbled by starting to buy the Wilton books and leaned a lot from a friend. But never got into too much for my own creations. Never have tried fondant and have not doen much for cakes the past 10 years. Now that my duaghter wants to learn, as we have done CUPcake decorating together, she’d like to do crazy on this art!

  83. Heidi Hill says

  85. Roberta C says

    They have classes at Michaels, but I have not taken any yet. I would love too, but don’t have the money to spend. Oh, that just gave me an idea to tell my husband. He could get me classes for Christmas!

  86. Cynthia C says

    I haven’t attended any because I don’t have the time or money for them.

  87. Jonathan Legans says

    I have not yet taken a Wilton class, but I LOVE the cakes you show in this post! I, too, limit myself to homemade icing and a spatula – when I really want to get fancy, I’ll take a tip or two out and attempt some writing or little “swirlies” on the edge of the cake! I bought my daughter the larger Wilton decorating set (as well as the class books) – she’s our “Cake Boss” and her cakes are fabulous-looking!
