Wilton's Spray-N-Seal Crumb Sealing Spray

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Has anyone heard of or tried this?  I just got an email today from Wilton advertising this product.  I don't know if I'd want to try it or not.  It is supposed to be made out of coconut oil which will be absorbed by the cake, but when you're ready to frost, there will be no crumbs.  They state that you won't need to put on a thin coat of frosting as a crumb coat if you use this product.  Just looking for comments to see what other's opinions are on this product.

What will they think of next?!!  I think the traditional crumb coat will always rule.

I saw this and started laughing hysterically. At some point this is all going to come full circle and we are going to go back to basics. Even before I was in cake decorating my mom would "thin" her icing with a little milk for a crumb coat, put it in the fridge and then frost with the "real frosting". She didn't know anything about decorating either, just a plan ole homemade cake for Sunday dinner.  That product seems very bizarre to me, I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole. If it is just coconut oil, it would be solid at room temp and wouldn't spray so what other toxic chemical is in there to make that spray at room temp and potentially leave an aftertaste on the cake?

That was my thought, too.  Just wasn't too sure about the chemicals.  I've tried coconut oil and in some things it's great, but not sure if it would leave that taste on the cake or not, and who wants a slight taste of coconut on each and every cake they make?  There are some things you need a shortcut for....I don't think crumb coating is one of them!

I was given a can of this product (I'm an instructor) by the company.  I won't use it either.  I think it is a really dumb product.  I would not use it on my cakes.  It contains propellants, not good.  I also don't think it is necessary to add extra crap to cake.  That is what grocery stores do.  Make crap with added yucky stuff.  No thanks.  Also I'm strictly  GF and it says "may contain wheat".  I think this is an unnecessary product that will be a big flop.  Crumb coating is easy and fast.  I would not recommend this product to anyone.   Just my personal opinion.  icon_lol.gif

Well, it's hardly the first utterly ridiculous product Wilton has come up with. And it probably won't be the last.

 

(Although I don't quite get all the invective I've seen here about their pans; I have a couple [a 9x13 with a snap-on cover, and an 8x8 that I bought because it was the cheapest 8x8 that didn't have a nonstick coating], and they seem decent enough to me. And those other pans with the folded corners [instead of pressed/hydroformed/whatever] seem like they'd be impossible to completely clean.)

Not me, I won't be using it either.  Not too mentions the chemicals we'll be releasing into the air thru the aerosol spray?  I have enough allergy problems.

i think it also misses the fact that the crumb coat levels and holds the cake together. how will a mist be the foundation for that? it might keep your crumbs down, but there's more that you will need.

I tend to stick to something that my mother used to say, "If you can make it at home, don't buy it-you'll save money." Same here. I'm relatively new to this but I don't see the need for this product.

I'm pretty much a coconut oil nut (har har) - I use it for EVERYthing, and I mean everything, from melting it down for cooking, to softening it up with essential oils and vitamin E in my mixer to make homemade (and highly superior to any chemical alphebet soup variety) skin cream. You know that guy in My Big Fat Greek Wedding that thinks window spray is the ultimate cure for everything and sprays it on everyone? Yeah, that's me with my raw virgin coconut oil. :)

 

But as a spray for a crumb coating? No.  If it is real coconut oil, it's solid at room temp. If it's refined coconut oil, it won't have any coconut taste (another poster mentioned that) but it WILL be full of other chemicals. 

Yuck.

Well, when it flops in America they will probably package it all up and send it to Australia to try and sucker us into buying it.

As my husband would say, "It's a solution looking for a problem."  I agree with ellavanilla, my crumbcoat stabilizes my cake.

I took a look at this product and while I think it's not necessary either as a crumb coat is very easy to do it's actually not as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The exact ingredients are: Coconut oil, propellants (isobutene and propane).  For all those worried about the chemicals etc. this spray contains less chemicals then your average baking spray that you "coat" your pans with before baking your cakes.  Ex. Baker's Joy spray contains: Soybean Oil, propellant (isobutene, propane), hydroxylated soy lecithin, soy lecithin, enriched wheat flour (niacin, iron, thiamine monoitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), silicon dioxide, TBHQ (to ensure freshness).   Now how many of us are willing to give up our baking spray? lol

I saw an ad for this stuff too. I couldn't get my head around it.
