AA fellow caker says that the new Wilton fondant truly is easier to roll & tastes better. Only available at Joann's right now. [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3217099/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

I always got a kick out of the name, "Decorator Preferred."  It has taken them over a decade to realize they were the laughing stock of the decorating industry. The only thing decorators preferred to do with Wilton's fondant was make sure everyone knew there were better alternative brands.  :o

 

I certainly have this cite and a local cake shop to remove the fog from my eyes and see the truth.

Yeah I certainly loathe most of Wilton's products; however, it's all that I can get. I live in the New Orleans area and after Katrina, the cake supply store never returned. There is not one close by at all. Buying on the internet can get expensive due to shipping. So I'm glad Wilton improved their fondant. However no matter what brand fondant, chocolate, candy melts, etc I use for decorations, people never eat them. They just admire the decorations, eat the cupcake, & either toss or save the decorations lol.

That's true. I have a lot of older Wilton products and pans that are actually very good, and widely available. I was going to be a Wilton instructor, but held back because I went back to school and could not commit the time. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because that was when they came out with the punch cutters and I just do not believe they are practical at all. There are so many individual components that are so big and bulky. It was the same time they rolled out improved versions of older products and made them too pricey and bulky.
