Definitely the large Wilton cake leveler. I've tried using it a few times, but end up scoring the cake with a knife and then cutting it with plain dental floss. What a waste of money!

Have you seen the Makins letter shapes? I was just looking at them at Hobby Lobby and they have a really pleasing shape to them, compared to the Wilton ones. (and Hobby Lobby has 40% off any one item for their printable coupon this week) I've noticed that a lot of the things in the clay aisle will work for fondant too.[/quote]

I haven't seen these. We don't have a Hobby Lobby here -- as far as I know -- just Michael's. What are they like?

I HATE THE WILTON LARGE CAKE LEVELER!

Funny that I saw this post, I just finished looking up their return policy. I don't have my reciept and I bought it months ago but I am going to write them a letter and tell them how much I hate it, then maybe they'll give me a refund.

I hate it more than anything else I have ever bought in my life.

Here they are:

Since I saw them in the store, I compared the wilton ones and these side by side. The Makins ones are taller and more square than the Wilton ones.

Why does almost everyone hate the ribbon cutter? I hate nearly everything Wilton and that's a tool I actually like!

the large wilton fondant rolling pin. I got it just for the class and have never used it again. MY good old wooden one works fine for when I need it.

I want to know if Wilton actually test their products?!!! It seems the majority of dislikes came from Wilton . I am sure we aren't the only people screaming about the poor quality .

I stay away from that aisle in the store now.

I just love tappits! Roll the fondant really thin - thinner than you think, and let it dry out a little bit. Then press, knock off the excess and tap out the letters. I wish tappits came in a zillion fonts and sizes!!

I have First Impression alphabet molds and I hate them! What a waste of $$ I can't figure out for the life of me how to use them successfully. The cavities are so thin that anything I try using (fondant, RI, chocolate) just breaks apart.

Has anyone ever used these before? And had luck?

I think Wilton caters to the casual at-home baker. A large part of their market are the cake class students. How many of you (like me) started this whole cake-decorating journey in a Wilton cake decorating class, with a Wilton character pan or simple bought-at-Walmart Wilton tools?

In their defense, I think they try to make cake decorating something that anyone can do and therefore offer low-cost items that are not made for the heavy use that we put upon them. Their shaped character pans are just an example of who their customer base is. Almost anyone can make a fabulous looking cake with a star tip and a shaped pan.

You have to give Wilton credit for finding a profitable niche in the cake decorating market and for opening up the world of cake decorating to more people by making the tools easily available.

(And no, I am not on their payroll. icon_biggrin.gif I just feel like their yearbooks, classes and yes, somewhat inferior tools have helped a lot of us get into this hobby that we all love so much. ) icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
