If you go to Wilton's site you can access patterns from any of their yearbooks.  On the main page go to "Learn" and then on the drop down screen under "Decorating" you'll see a tab for patterns.
Anyone ?  
I generally freeze my cakes after baking for easier carving and crumb coating.  I need to decorate a cake on Thursday for Monday because I am going out of town for the weekend.  Can I freeze the cake, carve, decorate & refreeze ?  or will refreezing hurt the integrity of the cake ?  I would really appreciate any advice or experiences ya'll have with this.  Thanks in advance !

dodibug I am so sorry about your loss.  I, too, collect cookbooks and about 8 years ago our home burned and we lost everything.  I had started my collection as a very young girl and there were lots of hand written notes from my grandmother, mother & myself.  I have enjoyed rebuilding my collection and hope it is something someday I can pass on to my daughter.  It's little things that you don't think about when it happens and then months or sometimes years later you'll...
