October 17th, 2016 by Lee Mooney Egan

Meal & Pie Pairings | WiltonWhen I invite people over for dinner or plan a family meal, I often approach the menu backwards…what’s for dessert?  That’s just my inner sweet tooth driving the get-together, but I often bake a pie or tart to feature seasonal ingredients that I want to share while they are at their peak. It keeps family and friends sitting at the dinner table as long as possible, sharing stories, sipping wine or coffee. However, to make menu planning a little easier and frankly more “straight forward,” here is a primer on matching some of our best Wilton main dishes to favorite pies, marrying flavors and textures to make simple meals worth repeating or improvising to suit your taste and pantry.

Trending Now: 7 Magic Cake Recipes

September 28th, 2016 by Desiree Smith

BlogImages-7-Magic-CakesHere at Wilton, we do our best to stay on top of what’s trending in the dessert world – especially when it comes to cake!

They’re typically made in an 8×8 square pan so that they rise nice and high. The Wilton Test Kitchen is working on a new magic cake recipe that we’ll share soon, but in the meantime, check out this round up of magic cake recipes.
