Description: This book follows the Wilton Techniques as taught at the famous Wilton School of Cake Decorating. It has been written so that the homemaker who has had little or no experience can easily learn to decorate cakes, salads, fruit plates, hors d'oeuvres, etc. beautifully and professionally. 

The Wilton Method of Teaching is a "do-it-yourself" method. Emphasis has been placed on large, detailed illustrations with just the necessary amount of easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow instructions. Thumb through the book. You will be amazed at the large number of beautiful illustrations showing every step of the decorating process. 

Believing in "first things first" we begin with the simple but necessary equipment you will need, the types of icings, the "why's" and "when's" for using them ... and then to the first simple steps of Cake Decorating. These are followed by simple border work designs. Then beautiful life-like flowers are shown and explained. We proceed to the easiest cake top designs and then to larger special cake arrangements. New and simple methods of Figure Piping and Color Technique used exclusively by the Wiltons are revealed. There are hundreds of illustrated ideas for cake tops and floral arrangements. All phases of the decorating process are fully illustrated and clearly explained. Everything taught at the Wilton School has been included in this book. There is a chapter devoted to Spun and Pulled Sugar Work, and a chapter on Fine Candy Making. 

With a little practice, following the Wilton Techniques written for you in this book, you will become a remarkably proficient and accomplished decorator and you will soon be turning out decorated pieces of professional quality. Your decorated pieces will be the envy of your friends and the topic of conversation among your guests. And you will be amazed at the personal satisfaction, the wonderful sense of creating something rare and beautiful, every time you decorate a cake.
