My aunt was a professional decorator so she would let me help decorate wedding sheet cakes while she did the tiered ones to be displayed at the reception. I had great fun learning tricks from her.
I've bought several of the Wilton Decorating Sets over the years for not only myself, but for some of my nieces that wanted to help decorate too. It is a great way to empower them since they have their very own tools.
What I love about this kit is that it is perfect for beginners and people like me that just don't have time to make elaborate cakes, but want the tools to add some flair to our creations. This 23 piece easy-to-use kit will allow anyone to join in the fun of cake and cupcake decorating by using the step-by-step instruction booklet and the following included tools:
I use the small round decorating tip for writing, the star tip to create both stars and shell edging around the outside of cakes and the left tip most often out of the ones that are included. The couplers are great because they allow you to easily change out tips for the decorating bags. The offset spatula is just the right size for frosting cupcakes or a cake in a 9x13 pan. I don't use the decorating triangle much, but it is fun to use every once in a while when I make a round 2 tier cake and then use a turntable to run the triangle along the edge to create a pattern.
This set is a great choice for the amateur or wanna-be baker because it is affordable and includes most of the tools you need to create beautiful cake and cupcake designs. I've used it to make baby shower cakes, birthday cupcakes, Mother's Day cupcakes and much more over the years. Occasionally I buy some new food coloring and disposable bags, but otherwise, I've been using the rest of the stuff for years.
