When Wilton asked me to do a review, I had no idea all the wonderful goodies they would be sending would be so fabulous and make little man go CRAZY!!
As a long time user of Wilton, I honestly knew this review would be biased because well, I have always loved them. My son’s 4th birthday was so special because of his cowboy cake, made in a Wilton pan. He talked about that cake forever and still remembers it. He’s 16 now.
Wilton, in my opinion, represents outstanding quality that is built to last for years and years; products that can be passed down for generations.
In the package they sent me, there were gels, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers and toppers, the fabulous new UltraGold round cake pans, muffin pan and more. I was so excited because I was going to make such a pretty cake using it all! Well, that didn’t quite happen. As you will see, little man (my 3yr old) decided that he wanted to do it all! I haven’t seen him that excited since he got his first saddle.
We used cakes mixes and icing that I had lying around the kitchen so I immediately was able to get started. I began with making the batter for the UltraGold Round Cake Pans first, then the batter for the cupcakes.
And then I baked and baked some more. While waiting for everything to cool off, little man about drove me crazy asking,”are they done, I want to help you”. It was annoying but yet so adorable to see how excited he was. Finally everything was out of the oven and cooled.
My cakes came out perfect, cooked evenly and I had no problems at all getting them out of the pans. Same for the cupcakes. I decided to ice the cake and cupcakes because I know little man wanted to do ALL the decorating. I’d be darn lucky to get in anything of my own. Wilton sent us several different kinds of cupcake sprinkles, sparkle gels, wrappers, and toppers!
Little man had a hard time deciding which ones he wanted to use so of course, he used everything. He just piled it on here and there, licking his fingers inbetween applications. It was a sight to see now and one that I’ll never forget.
Overall, the Wilton line is excellent. From the sprinkles to the UltraGold cake pans, it was all perfect, as I expected it would be. Wilton should be a part of everyone’s lives, directly or indirectly. Tyler loved that cake at the young age of 4, not because it was Wilton, but because it was his favorite thing, a cowboy and Wilton made that possible.
I know this post has a lot of photos but I took even more and have compiled them in a whrrl slideshow. Enjoy and I’d love to hear your Wilton story if you have one and if you don’t, get one!
