The Foundation to all Wilton Method Courses, Decorating Basics debuted in June 2010 with revamped content! The Wilton Method Decorating Basics Course 1 is the perfect place to start! Deanna will show you the right way to decorate, step by step, so that you experience the excitement of successfully decorating your first cake. Along the way, you’ll learn to create icing drop flowers, rosettes, shells, pompom flowers, leaves, shaggy mums, and the ribbon rose. You’ll also decorate cookies, cupcakes … and of course cakes. Check out the supply list under the calendar tab!
In Flowers and Cake Design Course 2, you’ll explore sophisticated ways to bring your cakes and desserts to life! You will learn to create breathtaking icing flowers such as pansies, lilies and the famous Wilton Rose. Then, you’ll discover the secrets of arranging them in a beautifully balanced cake-top bouquet. Your amazing flowers will be framed by an impressive boarder treatment or basket-weave design. With the skills you learn here and your ability to make flowers in advance using gum paste and fondant or royal icing, you can create beautiful blooms at your convenience, ready to place on any cake. Decorating Basics is a pre-requisite. Check out the supply list under the calendar tab!

I've made into the 500 Club by teaching my 500th student in the month of July!! Thank you so much to everyone who's helped me get there!
OK this is awesome and I've had a lot of people asking about this. Straight from a 20 year veteran at Wilton! PLUS pay attention to the ending. She is doing the reverse shell like she's walking in the park. For those of you that know...I dread the reverse shell. This made more sense to me. Enjoy!
Thought this would help answer those nagging royal icing questions!
This is directly from a Certified Lead Wilton Trainer:
You can keep Royal Icing on your counter for a long time, however, if its going to be more than two weeks, I would refrigerate it. If longer than a month, I would freeze it.
You will see liquid gather on the top, you can drain it, if you want the icing to be stiff, or you can keep the liquid in, if you want medium. You do have to re-beat in any case.
If you freeze royal icing, take the container out the day before you want to use it and put in the frig to thaw. Follow steps above.
For those that have been following my crazy Air Force life, we have finally been given our move date of April 30th. Which means the 3rd or 4th week of April we will be gone. March will be my last month of classes at the Huber Heights Hobby Lobby. I leave it in the capable hands of Amy Cotterman, a former student of mine, who will pick up my classes in April. I will most likely be around in April helping with the transition but not sure beyond that. If you would like to swing by, my classes are on a current Tuesday/Thursday setup. I would like to say to all of you who have taken my classes, Thank you!!!! From the bottom of my heart, you all have made me a very big success! There are exciting new things coming from Wilton so keep a lookout for new announcements from Wilton in May. Again Thank you SO MUCH for a great year and a half!
This is an awesome class and is so much fun! The end product makes a terrific gift and is so simple to do. Here's the official Wilton description:
The Cookie Class is a 2- session, 3 hour class that is fun for the beginner and advanced decorator
alike. Beginners will enjoy the ease of working with our Cookie Treat Pans, while students who have
already completed other courses may apply skills previously learned.
Meaning? FUN! What is nice about this class is that it does allow new and advanced students to work side by side. It's geared for both!
Can I say how very much I wish my husband liked cake enough to let me make this! But alas the man doesn't do cake (unless it's plain ol' cake) and doesn't like chocolate. *sigh* But enjoy! This would be super simple to do. But I don't like red velvet cake so it would be devil's food for me! YUM!
I just found a great resource for color flow patterns. At surprisingly, Wilton.com. Just click pattern locator at the bottom left and it will allow you to search old patterns. There are a lot of cool patterns and nifty vintage stuff. Enjoy looking!
