New Wilton Products

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
Have any of you been able to check out the new Wilton products now available in Hobby Lobby, Micheal's...What do you think? What products get your thumbs up and which, if any, get a thumbs down?

I used one of their new fondant molds (the one with the pearls, leaves, and roses) worked perfectly!

I have not had a chance to play with the new stuff so much, but personally as a WMI I am IN LOVE with the new Fondant mat. It is twice the size of the practice board with two layers of plastic making it possible to cut so many more pieces of gumpaste out. The punch, cut, deocarte line is really easy to use, but I don't see myself using it a lot, but have also not explored all the possible options with it. The new Gum Paste kit looks great as does the new tool kit, especially now that wilton is exploring more and more with wired flowers.

I had a look at the silicone molds -- they look great. But I didn't buy... yet. I did pick up the new brushes. Love them. Especially the plastic handles. No more paint to chip off (and into my fondant). I also picked up the flower drying rack. Haven't used it yet, but was thrilled at the 5.99 price. My hubby was gonna build me one, but that would have cost a lot more.

I love that we have new stuff out. And as I WMI I am excited that more people in my area can get a hold of some products locally more easily. I haven't tried anything out yet, but I do hope so soon.

I did try out the punch sets last night. They are easy to use, and the sugar paper actually tastes pretty good, it has a slight vanilla taste to it. I'm not sure it is something I would use it a lot in my style of decorating, but there are some cute things that can be done with it.

I have a long list of things that I want to get but so far the only things I've gotten is the cake marker, a deluxe set of paint brushes and the mold that someone before mentioned wiht the pearls and the roses. I haven't used any of them yet though. I want to get those tweezers that they are gonna have (my stores locally don't have a lot of the stuff yet), the tool set, the new flower cutters, the gumpaster saver mat, the cut and spin thing, the flower mold that details gum paste, the circle cutter, and I'm sure that there are others. I can only buy stuff when I sell cakes though so it will be a long time coming before I can get all things that I want.

Oh, and of course, I want to get the new yearbook when it comes out next month. I think I am going to get 2 of the sugar sheets to use this weekend for a graduation cake that I am going to be doing.

I stop in to Hobby Lobby twice a month when my daughter is at her art class. I was so surprised to see all of the new Wilton stuff. I didn't buy anything yet. I'll pick them up a little at a time, with a coupon of course. The Michaels by my house does not yet have the new items. I will probably buy the molds, the flower/leaf veiner press, the color dusts, the flower drying rack, and a few of the tools. I know the Wilton stuff is generally not as good as the professional stuff, but since this is a hobby for me, I can't justify spending $25 on one professional mold, when I can get three of the Wilton molds for the same price. I only make 5-7 cakes a year.

Sounds like a field trip is needed! I couldn't find some of these new products on the Wilton site.

You have to look around for them on the Wilton site. All new stuff, but not in the new stuff section? That's pretty ?? icon_smile.gif

Alot of it is in the gumpaste and fondant sections.

Yeah I had a hard time finding any of the new goodies on the wilton site. I did end up at HL today and got the flower impression set and the cake marker. It was sure hard not to buy it all! I used the impression set already and i'm really impressed I'm not usually a wilton fan but they did a good job on quality and price.

My husband bought me two of the fondant molds for Mother's Day. I've only used the blue Baroque one but I LOVE it! So easy to use and now I don't have to hand roll individual pearls!

I just bought the baroque mold for the pearl border because I couldn't spend +$20 for a pearl mold (hobbyist). It's nice to know that the pearl border works well! Has anyone tried the new dusts? They have pearl, metallic and colors. I know they used to have a gold and silver sparkly dust that was horrible, but I'm hoping the new stuff is different/better.

Our Hobby Lobby is now carrying Americolor bottled colors. Pretty good selection and $1.18 each (my local bakery supply is $1.99 each and further away!)
