I am a newbie and am doing this just as a hobby. Since I have heard many complaints for wilton products, I would like to have advice before I buy the wilton ribbon cutter and embosser set? Is it good for a beginner? Since I do this only as a hobby I do not want to spend a lot of money on expensive products and until now I am quite contented wtih wilton tips and even the gumpaste flower set that I have though it could have been better.

Welcome Newbie!

I bought the Wilton embosser and cutter set and it's not my favorite thing in the world to be honest. I prefer using a very high quality pizza cutter and ruler when making cuts for stuff like ribbon. For other more intricate cuts, I use an Exacto knife set. I don't like the embosser because everything I try to emboss usually sticks to the thing and I find it more hassle than it's worth! Shoot...I rarely use mine...you can have it!!

I didn't like mine. It didn't cut all the way through and then it broke. This is what you want:


Every time I use it I pat myself on the back for buying it. icon_smile.gif

That stupid purple little rooly thingy with the interchangeable discs? I threw mine across the room the first time I used it. Razor blades, Exacto knives and pizza cutters alllllll the way! thumbs_up.gif

Hate to be so blunt, but I HATED IT, (still do). I could not get it to work at all. The edges were always ragged, the thing stuck, put extra lines in my work, etc.....blah, blah, blah....Of all the Wilton things I have bought, (and that's just about everything they make) this is the one product I definitely regret buying, and we barely used it in class. Borrow someone else's on class night! Don't do it girl!

Don't waste the money! It wasn't worth it! The edges come out crooked, jagged, and looks nothing like the picture! The disks constantly fall off the thing while you're using it, causing you to have to start all over again....FRUSTRATING!!!!

I use an extremely sharp knife (I keep it sharpened), exacto, ruler, and pizza cutter. Cheap, replaceable items that actually work!!!

DON'T DON'T DON'T!!!! I hated mine from the first time I used it!! kids play dough cutters are far better!! Anyway, I use a pizza cutter, and it's perfect.

I'm pretty sure you could get 100 shipped to you from those of us that find it on the long list of Wilton crap. icon_biggrin.gif

I'll add my SAVE YOUR MONEY to all the rest, one of the worst tools I ever bought.
