For Once, Not A Wilton Bashing!

I have one medium Wilton icing spatula, and one small. Used them for years. Recently I bought spatulas of another well-known brand, in three sizes. I expected the new ones to be of better quality than the Wilton, although I found no flaws in the Wilton spatulas.

As I was ganaching my cake with a new spatula and trying to get straight sides (can't use a bench scraper to save my own sorry neck...), I kept getting an outward bulge in the middle. When I with no purpose grabbed the Wilton and used it, things straightened right out. I checked all the spatulas... the new ones all had a slight bow to the blade, but the Wilton spatulas were flat and true.

Who knew? I will be getting more Wilton spatulas to replace the new ones. Just thought I'd give credit where it's due, since we bash Wilton products so regularly (self included in "we").

I love Wilton products. The only thing I do not like is the taste of their fondant, it rolls better than any other and gives a wonderful smooth finish, better than any other brand I have tried so far but it tastes awful. Too bad, I would use it all the time otherwise.

I love Wilton Too, I have a lot of their Products, also, I know some of their things are not great especially the fondant, but a lot of their things are wonderful.

I agree it is easy to work with, but the taste is awful. Has anyone flavoured it? Does that help disquise the funny taste?

When I was at the OSSAS I tasted the fondirific and it was wonderful and they were rolling it out with cornstarch or powdered sugar... I bought some and cant wait to use it! But wilton has some ok products although I think they sometimes need to do more to pick their instructors.

I mixed the Wilton fondant with chocolate candy clay once, it was yummy! There weren't any flavors in the wilton to get in the way of the chocolate flavor.
