Okay, all you Wilton instructors out there. Can anyone send me a copy of the practice sheets/templates from the first Wilton course? I am trying to get ready for my class this Thursday and I cannot for the life of me find them. icon_mad.gif

I will probably find them Friday morning, but oh well. icon_rolleyes.gif

If anyone can help me i would be eternally grateful.

Thanks In Advance.

Hmm...This made me think of something. I have the old sheets (really old icon_lol.gif ) not the ones from the newest kit, and don't need them so was going to let a friend have them for an upcoming class. But....can the old sheets be used for the new classes? I know Wilton just released new kits and some things are different now.

If you purchased the cake decorating basics kit or the new ultimate tool caddy then the sheets are in there.

Katie and believer: I hope you won't be disappointed. The equipment used in the new courses is different from the old ones. For example, in Decorating Basics, leaves are piped with tip 352 not tip 67. The old courses didn't use the button flower press or the calla lily former as two more examples. Does the store where your classes are held also sell the course workbooks? I'm not suggesting you buy the book, but you could look through it to see exactly what equipment you will need. Your instructor should be anticipating the problems the students will have. I have photocopied the practice sheets for the Flowers and Cake Design students who took the old Course I because the practice sheets are only available in the Decorating Basics kit at this time, but I won't be supplying them with any other equipment.--Carol

Hey everyone,

Just found out you can get the practice sheets at the student website http://wiltonmethod.wilton.com.

I'm a WMI and I think people will really like the new classes. There's a bunch of fun new things and clarification on some older techniques.

Good luck!

PS To the original poster, sorry this is a bit late! icon_rolleyes.gif

Yes, it is for instructors. WMI stands for Wilton Method Instructor.

Yes it is a WMI board only. It is a great place to go for ideas, suggestions, and to talk about problems.

You can subscribe to it by emailing [email protected]

Selina (sweetcakes here) will be able to get you set up after she asks you a few questions. icon_smile.gif

I just took a look at the new practice sheets. Did they change the tip type that they use for the basket weave?

TexasSugar Posted 11 Jun 2010 , 4:06pm

They did, they are now using a star tip to do it. The old book showed this variation under the techinque.

Well that's dumb. When I took my course 1 my instructor taught us how to use both so we could see the difference in the type of leaves they make and different ideas on application.

I'll disagree with the change of the tips for leaves as being dumb. As a WMI, I have always shown the 352, as well as the 67. Why? Because the 352 makes a much pretty leaf with a perfect point, not a leave that is split. I always opened the student's 67 tips, but still with out that perfect consistancy, it splits.

The practice sheets also come with the practice board - since I had everything when I took the classes, all I had to buy was the board.

I'm sorry. What I was giving my opinion about was chaging rather than including. To change means to use one rather than another, exclusion. Both leave tips are different and IMHO both should be taught side by side, not just one, as stated by Carol.

But they both weren't orginally taught either. Though I show both in class, and though there are other instructors that show both, the 67 was the only one that was really suppose to be taught. It is kinda of like changing the basketweave tip with the star tip in the new stuff. Both are shown in the book, (new and old), but we only show one tip in class.

Texas Sugar, I have taken all the Wilton Courses and really enjoyed them. I am curious, are the "new" courses that much different?I'm thinking of taking them again to get some new ideas, my question is this, is it worth taking the courses again? Thanks for any input. icon_smile.gif

The below is what I have posted to my students and tell them when I am asked this question. I do have a student now that has taken my classes and is taking them again. I do plan to ask her at the end her thoughts on them and if she was glad she did them again.

----- ----- -----

Ive been asked if taking the new refreshed courses is worth it, if you have taken Wiltons previous courses. That is a hard question for me to answer since everyone has their own reasons for taking the classes. I did sit down and type up a rough list of what is included in the new classes, noting what things are repeated from the past courses and what things are new. I hope this gives you more information to decide if you would like to come back and join me for the refreshed courses.

My honest opinion is if you have the time, want to learn more, and can afford it, then why not take the classes. Even if there are repeats it is just reinforcing what you have learned before.

The new Course kits are $34.99 a kit, and there will be addition supplies need, just like the previous classes.
