To be honest, most people over on this side of the Atlantic seem to favour using PME modelling tools. They are by far the most common that I see around . However, I have looked at this set in the Wilton catalogue a good few times, and the price seems reasonable in comparison. And the case would be a very handy addition to this set. So I was wondering how good these Wilton tools actually are.
There are 10 tools in this set which are numbered and colour coded to make them easy to find and organize. The handles are designed to be easy to grip, and are ergonomically designed. Seven of the tools are double-ended, so in reality you are getting 17 tools! The tools included are:
Shell tool and knife; large & small bone tool; quilting & cutting tool; scriber & cone tool; large & small veining tool; large & small ball tool; umbrella tool; palette knife and 2 modelling sticks.
Sounds good?! Well what do real customers who have tried this kit really think?
Customers seems to appreciate the variety of tools included in this kit, and say that it contains all that you need to get started with your cake decorating. The case and the fact that the tools are numbered makes it very east to store, transport and organize your tools.
Many of the customers were very happy with what they got for their money.
The Not So Good
A few people commented on the fact that some of the tools seemed a little bit too small to be effective. One person also felt that the quilting tool was cutting strips instead of actually just embossing a pattern.
Some more professional cake decorators felt that the construction was a little bit cheap, and that there were small bumps and marks in them from the manufacturing.
From what I have read, beginners and home bakers seem to be very happy with this set of tools from Wilton. However, if you are a more professional/commercial cake decorator, you might be better off investing in sturdier tools.

Best selling authors Karen Tack and Alan Richardson are back with more cupcake inspiration. But not only cupcakes this time, novel and fun ideas for pies, cakes and cookies as well that are easier than ever to use.
Unlike some other recipe books, this one uses easy to find ingredients and items that you can find in your local store.
Customers particularly liked the fun and clear photos of the decorating ideas that made them want to try them out for themselves.
They also said that the step by step instructions were easy so that even a complete beginner could follow them and create stunning desserts.
Even though some of the ideas are quite complex and involved to complete, there is room in each of the projects for children to get involved.
The Not So Good
Some people were expecting a cook book, but this is mostly a decorating book, and the recipes use cake mixes rather than giving “made from scratch” recipes.
A number of people also said that the desserts are amazing to look at, but may need some tweaking to make them taste as good as they look.
A convenient, simple and elegant way to display and serve your cupcake creations or other desserts. It could even be used to serve other kinds of starters, fruit or finger food.
With 4 easy to assemble tiers, you can display up to 36 cupcakes, and store it away with ease when not in use. It is made from tough, durable and easy to clean plastic, and is just over 16″ high when assembled. The tiers are slightly angled to display your desserts to their best advantage.
One of the most commented on aspects of this dessert tower is how handy it is that you can just take it apart and store it easily without it taking up too much space.
The tough, durable plastic construction also was appreciated for being sturdy and easy to clean.
Overall, most customers were extremely happy and satisfied with this product and would wholeheartedly recommend it. No wonder it is one of the more popular Wilton products on Amazon!
The Not So Good
A very small number of customers said that the slight tilt of the tiers caused the cakes to fall off from the stand.
Tips From Customers
Why not use some ribbon or other decorations on the tower to match your party’s color scheme?
