Original Post – October 2, 2014
As a 22 year Wilton employee, I understand how important it is that we listen to our consumers, as we strive to continually make cake decorating easier and better for everyone, from beginner to professional cake decorator.
That’s why we’re re-introducing our original fondant, available exclusively on Wilton.com. Plus, for the first-time-ever, it’s available in a great value, Maker’s Pack!
The Original Classic Wilton Fondant
People either loved it because it was strong, or hated it because of the amount of gum needed to make it strong.
Bakers who produce commercial cakes came to rely on the stiff consistency because it’s more durable than most.
Why Buy Classic Wilton Fondant
- Sets up faster and dries faster.
Decorator Preferred Fondant
It’s the clear choice for cake decorators who want great-tasting fondant that’s also easy to roll out. If you’ve never used fondant before, or you’re decorating a smaller cake (anything smaller than 14”), we think you’ll love Decorator Preferred Fondant.
Why Buy Decorator Preferred Fondant
- Requires less kneading because it’s softer.
The response we have gotten from our Wilton Method Instructor community, both teachers and students, has been very positive. It’s a great start for first-time fondant decorators. “Eric, my students have been using it all this month for course three and a tall cakes class and LOVE it!” said Virginia. “It’s FANTASTIC!!!”
How to Buy Original Classic Wilton Fondant
The Original Classic Wilton Fondant is now available in a standard “Maker’s Pack” with 8 individual 1.5 lbs. boxes for $47.99, perfect for cake decorators who make wedding cakes for fun and for profit. Available exclusively on Wilton.com.
