I know that does not make sense but when I have tried to tilt it a couple of cakes, the turn table sent the cake flying off it. So now I don't use the tilt option anymore. The other thing I don't like is the non-skid base. The non-skid covers most of the base, when I am using a bench scraper to smooth my icing it interferes with it. The non-skip catches the bench scraper. I wish Wilton would have put just a small patch of non-skid in the center and not all over it. At least this turn table is level and light weight (unlike their older model which was heavy and never level).
I would not recommend it. Even though I bought mine at the Wilton Tent sale and used my instructor discount, I am sorry I wasted my money on it. I don't think the people at Wilton really use their products before marketing them. I was at the Wilton School taking a class and one of the big shots from the headquarters that works in product development was there and she had problems getting her tilt and turn table to tilt. Her cake ended up on her work table!!! All I could do was laugh to myself!!!
Does it lock in place like the trim and turn? I'm thinking someone told me it didn't but I could be thinking about another one!
What class did you take at the Wilton School? I am registered for the Masters Class in June....driving up from NC and staying w/ a friend that lives up there....very excited!!
