2014 Wilton Yearbook Cover Cake Reveal!

May 1st, 2013 by Steve Rocco

It’s Wilton Yearbook time again! No matter how hard we work designing the inspiration for the inside pages of the Wilton Yearbook, there is still one major decision to be made…what are we going to put on the cover? To answer that question, we asked our online audience, “What would you like to see on the 2014 Wilton Yearbook cover?” One answer, BUTTERCREAM!

Sketching the 2014 Yearbook Cover Cake But we still needed a topic. What were we going to design our cake to look like? What could we do that we have not already done?

Our job was cut out for us and we went on a search. A search that made us determined to give you the buttercream design you yearned for. After weeks of researching trends and styles, we landed on a unique way to incorporate the Steampunk style into our 2014 Yearbook cover.

What is Steampunk? It’s science fiction with steam powered machinery. It is inspired by the Victorian era blending with 19th century wild west civilization with an edginess. Top hats, corsets, lace, metal flowers, tulle, buttons, and even monocles are only some of the fashionable accessories that bring this trend to life!

We finally had a topic we felt we could work with. Something that definitely was edgy and different, but most importantly it had elements that were recognizable and familiar. Our biggest concern? Could buttercream work with this trend? Could we take classic techniques and put a spin on them? Yes…yes…we could!

Designing the Cake

What pans will I use? How many tiers? What color will I use for the cake and its accents? These are questions I must answer before I put pencil to paper. The decisions I make not only affect how the cake will look in person, but also how it will look through the camera’s eye.

The next step is to create a sketch of what the cake could look like. With reference images, colors, and other details confirmed plus plenty of sharpened pencils, I began interpreting what was in my mind on to the paper. Sometimes it takes many sketches, but this time I sketched one cake, liked what I saw, set the pencil down and knew this was it.

Creating the Cake

Now that we have a sketch, it is all in the hands of Wilton’s talented cake decorators. First, what techniques are we going to use? How do we pick from our vast decorating tip assortment and over 100 classic techniques?

The testing begins. Our decorators piped close to 50 technique samples so we could determine just what would look right to make the Steampunk theme rock! We narrowed it down to 12 techniques.

The actual cake was decorated by three different Wilton decorators: Diane Knowlton, Mark Malak and Kathy Krupa, with Jenny Streicher supervising the production.

2014 Yearbook Cover

When the cake was finished, we had a reveal in our office. The reaction…everyone loved it! We were excited for many reasons, but three stood out the most. We gave our audience what they asked for – buttercream, classic techniques, and we put an edgy fun spin on classic techniques, just like the definition of Steampunk!

I hope you enjoy the cover cake as well as all the other 250-plus designs inside the 2014 yearbook! The 2014 Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating will be available online and at local retailers in June. Let me know what you think!

Happy Decorating!

  10. Faye says:

    THANK YOU! As much as I enjoy the look of the fondant creations, my customers prefer BUTTERCREAM! Thank you for listening to your loyal customers. I look forward to getting my copy of the Yearbook in June!

  11. Karen says:

    Very cool! Love the cake…it inspires me!

  12. Deborah Gonzales says:

    It’s so good to see buttercream being used again! Fondant is lovely, but let’s face it, nobody likes the taste, so it is a big waste of time and money, in my opinion.

  13. Karen says:

    I always look to Wilton for creative inspiration and you never disappoint! Thanks for sharing your creative process with us. Very interesting!

  14. Isabel Sanchez says:

    I really want to get your book! how much is it? Are you selling it in Mexico?

  15. DELOY USSERY says:

    Thats what I’m talking about. Great job, can’t wait to get mine.

  16. Carol Brown says:

    This yearbook is just amazing. I work for Doug Rickenberger in Bloomington, il. Three-fourths of our customers ask about buttercream cakes. I share your fondant recipe with many. It is easy to make, tastes GOOD, and easy to make. Congrats on a superior cover!

  17. Beautifully done! Can’t wait for the new book!

  18. CraftyKaren says:

    Thank you for featuring buttercream…I’m an old-fashioned cake artist at heart and won’t do the fondant…buttercream taste can’t be beat! I always get raves on my buttercream artistry…can’t wait to get some new ideas!!

  19. Viki Brown says:

    It’s beautiful!!!!! Very inspiring! Definitely the perfect cover! 🙂

  20. Terry says:

    Absolutely love it! Kudos to the designer and decorators!! I particular like the piping on the sides of the bottom tier. I am working on learning good piping skillls. Even though it is way beyond my skill level in its entirety, I will use parts of the design on my cakes. Wilton-Keep it up!

  21. Sylvie says:

    Bravo! Continue to leave us ideas like your cake and tricks.Thank you for that Sylvie

  22. Rosanne Sable says:

    Very nice! As much as I like fondant and gum paste , I’m glad to see that more buttercream techniques and ideas are coming forth in the new yearbook…Looking forward to it!

  23. MaryBeth says:

    It’s good to keep up with the trends, but I hope you don’t alienate the ‘traditionalists’ among us. Last year’s pretty much left us out. I’ll probably get this one more for the ‘Anniversary’ part.

  24. Sharon Hahn says:

    I enjoy the Wilton yearbook but it seems that along with new ideas comes a lot of cost – first for the book itself (considering half of it is a catalog!), and then all the ‘new and different’ tools needed to make the cakes shown. Sure, we all like to try different things, but it’s getting to the point that it’s just too expensive for all of it! While you have everything you need at your fingertips, the rest of us have to purchase each and every thing.
    Perhaps the yearbook for 2015 will be more simple and down to earth – getting back to basics for capturing some newbies to cake decorating like in the past. I know if I were just starting to learn, most of the ideas would be way over my accomplishment level! You need to do things for all levels, not just the new things and advanced people!!

    • SylvieB says:

      I agree with you Sharon. It is getting too expensive when we want to try new ideas. Hopefully there will be a more down to earth easy basic book in the near future.

      • Sharon Hahn says:

        Thank you, SilvieB! My family also loves the buttercream and prefer anything else added to be very minimal. I’m really happy they are going back to more buttercream and look forward to the 2014 idea/catalog issue. I think if they got rid of the catalog part (cause we can see that in stores and online) and added the patterns, it would be a fantastic issue!

  25. Patti says:

    Absolutely gorgeous!! It will be hard to top this one!! Love it!!!!!

  26. Perron says:


  27. Sherry says:

    I do love buttercream!!!
    Way to go team. I love the old techniques and some folks just aren’t into fondant. they will love it too

  28. Lana says:

    Wow! Love it!

  29. Daniela C. says:

    AWESOME !! I prefer BUTTERCREAM !! Congratulations on the beautiful cake !!I’m looking forward to buy and the ideas in this new book.!

  30. Cara says:

    Love, love, love it! It’s absolutely beautiful and perfect. Great job, Wilton. I’d say you guys nailed it!!

  31. Tracy Bean says:

    Love it! Beautiful!

  32. Aimee says:

    I love the cover cake! It’s beautiful, over-the-top and modern – just like a cover cake should be. I also really love how the purple is an accent color, would be very easy to imagine this cake in any color!

  33. Cookie says:

    I prefer working with fondant because I find it easier to handle and less messy but nothing beats the taste of buttercream. Can’t wait to purchase the 2014 yearbook. Looking forward to the spin on classic techniques. The cover looks amazing! Great job.

  34. I am from Brazil and in my country the fondant cakes are more popular then the buttercream. I enjoy the look of the fondant creations but you are always surprising me how buttecream can be lovely too. Wilton has inspired me from 1996 when I started decorating cakes. I have been collecting the yearbooks since the 1976 edition and I have not missed one! Love the new creation, so contemporary. Can’t wait to see the entire edition. Thanks you!

  35. JoAnn says:

    Luv that Cake! Great Job! Can’t wait till its out and I can show it to my Wilton Students!

  36. Nancy says:

    LOVE IT! Can’t wait to read the open the new edition!

    Looks great. Certainly will be a page turner to see what’s inside!

  39. Anna says:

    It’s AWESOME that Wilton will again feature Buttercream. It tastes so much better and is so much easier to work with. Thanks, Wilton for listening to your customers! Bring back buttercream!!!!

  40. simisola Adeleye says:

  42. Evelyn Villalobos says:

    Love it!!! Can’t wait to purchase it and see what other ideas are inside this yearbook.

  43. Judy B. says:

    The new yearbook cover is truly one of the best ones yet. It shows a different style as opposed to those of the past. It’s design is truly “Classic”. I’ve got your yearbooks dating back over 30 years and this is one of the nicest.

  44. miriam says:

    Love It.

  45. Connie P says:

    I love it!!!! It is a classic and yet has a very modern and fresh look to it as well!

  46. KittyPride says:

    Looks amazing! Right out of Moulin Rouge, go Wilton!

  47. Carol Dorrington says:

    HAPPY 50TH .

    Thanks again Wilton

  48. Rochelle says:


  49. Mili W says:

    Awesome cover!!!…………. finally getting back to buttercream, as old times, it tastes very much better. I think its easier working with fondant but nobody likes the taste. It will be amazing to combine both techniques. Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Cathy says:

    Absolutely LOVE the 2014 cover! Awesome job!!

  51. Wanda says:

    Simplemente me encanta.Muy bien Wilton .

  52. Deb Bears says:

    Absolutely Beautiful!!!! I love everything about Wilton. Can’t wait to get a copy of the yearbook. Thank you Wilton crew for everything that you do. One day maybe I will be able to attend the school.

  53. Amanda says:

    Love this cake! I’m not Steampunk, but I love corsets & the Victorian look. Great way to incorporate Buttercream & Fondant. I can’t wait for the new book!
    Thank you Wilton!

  54. Angie says:

    Cover look enticing. Can’t wait to see the inside.

  55. Marialfantu Ladama says:

    • Nancy says:

      Marialfantu: Dices que no lo puedes ordenar en linea y que no te deja, bueno, la razón es de que no lo vas ha poder hacer hasta Junio, es cuando va ha estar listo para el público en linea or en las tiendas, sino hasta Junio 2013. Lo sienti mucho, yo también lo quisiera tener, pero tendrrmos que esperar…..

  56. Claudia says:

    tem como eu adquirir o Wilton 2014 yearbook of cake decorating traduzido para o português,já q moro no Brasil?

  57. Sharon'sEdibleArt says:

    The 2013 Yearbook was a definite improvement with your Cake Couture section and pages 94-97 just before that section. As a self-taught baker and only two years experience, I like looking at the designs for inspiration, but feel as my skill levels progress, I should be able to search your book for additional “next level” designs. Perhaps you can divide your yearbook into Beginner, Intermediate, Designer sections and have an equal number of pictures for each.

    I’m really happy to see this design on the cover and hope you have many more inspirational ideas inside.

  58. Jane Maloney says:

    looking forward to recieve the 2014 year book L have copies of all the year books 1973 to date I think 73 was the first year book I allso have all your books wedding, celebrate and all the pattern books from 1959. It took me awhile to get all of them but I am proud of my collection

  59. Patricia says:

    Absolutely beautiful! the colors, the styles, and designs!

    I am definitely going to start working on this! I do hope the tutorial is in the book.

  60. belinda says:

    Hi this book looks amazing,I live in the uk and i know you dont deliver to uk but could you let me know where else i could buy this amazing book thankyou Belinda.

  61. Carole says:

    Stunningly gorgeous!!!!

  62. Guillermo says:

    I do business making cakes and one new trend is growing in my area is cakes for teenagers t young guys fron 11 to 27 asking for cakes with games figures, Xbox, and other games as well, based on the high difficulty to recreate I use companies where I send the PDF image and they send me back printed with edible ink and edible paper with instructions attached to add, the difficult part is covered mi art is recreate on the cake part of the game. Is fun and that customer cluster appreciate we take care of them in a modern up to date themes related to their new games era.

  63. Anxiously waiting. Not very patient. Lol

  64. Randall Miller says:

    Do you have any plans to release this, or any back issues in electronic form. I have been using my Computer, and tablet (both Apple) quite frequently for cake decorating. I keep track of my inventory, both soft and hard goods, in a database (Bento) and my recipes. I have no more room for any paper books in my home, and have only purchased ebooks.

  65. Marsha says:

    I love the cover . Colors are perfect Great idea

  66. Donna says:

    Well done

  67. Ana says:

    You Rock! Love it. Absolutely love it.

  68. Janeeta says:

    Cover looks gorgeous! I hope this book will be a tremendous improvement over last year’s yearbook.

    I was very unhappy with last year’s yearbook. There were some darn ugly cakes in there, not to mention that the yearbook was more like a sales catalog than a cake book. So, it should be interesting to see if there has been any improvements or if it’s more of the same.

  69. Maureen says:

    I wish the patterns were included in the Year book and not a separate purchase. I would like to see less Wilton products in the book if there is only so much room available. I feel I can see those items online for free so why waste the space in the year book. Sorry for the negative comment, otherwise I love the books.. Thank you.

  70. Monica says:

    Preciosos los detalles…. ya quiero tenerlo conmigo !!
    Espero que lo editen al español tambien !

  71. Gina B says:

    ITs lovely, thank you Wilton, for thinking about us that we love buttercream….:-) I’ll give you a 100..

  72. I started taking the Wilton Decorating Classes, Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced in 1973. I have been using Wilton products ever since that time, and my yearbook collection starts in 1977. I also have the Celebrate books. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the inspiration and ideas that I get from the yearbooks. I also own soooo many of the Wilton pans and tools!!
    Thank you Wilton!!

  73. Suley says:

    Hermoso!!! Ese diseño de pastel quedó bellísimo.
    Muchas FELICIDADES!!!

  74. Lori says:

    I absolutely love it. I can not wait to get my hands on a copy. I am so glad you went back to Buttercream. Thank You!

  75. Arlette says:

    elegante! delicado! bello

  76. Linda Minchew says:

    The design us beautiful. Thank you for getting back to buttercream and I hope most of the designs in the book are buttercream. As a recent client said “we want real icing” meaning butter cream.

  77. marta says:

    donde lo obtengo?soy de buenos aires argentina

  78. Michelle Moore says:

    Absolutely georgous.

  79. Sera says:

    I think it’s great. It has the look fondant fans like, but with the techniques, interest and flavour buttercream fans like. It makes me want to buy the yearbook and learn the techniques better. I may not have a reason to make such a lavish cake, but the point is teaching and inspiration so this is a winner. Wilton asked, people answered, Wilton listened. 🙂

  80. Georgia M. Hicks says:

    This is Beautiful!!! Can’t wait to get the new yearbook. You design beautiful cakes

  81. Traci whyte says:

    Disappointing! Wilton continues to produce dismal books. Far color, simple but in the hopes being considered difficult, add some fondant, too much silver, and appeal to everyone….yes? Great job Wilton!!

  82. TOYIN OLAITAN says:

    ThIs is great !! Can’t wait to see the inside. Finally ̶̴̳̐̿̾̈́͠Ɛ̤̥̝̈̊̊ lovers of butter cream can have great and exciting fun decorations. ⌣»̶·̵̭̌·̵̭̌✽̤̈̊Ŧђɑ̤̥̈̊п̥̥̲̣̣̣kƨ̣̣̣̇̇̇̇✽̤̈̊·̵̭̌·̵̭̌«̶⌣‎​

    I love this cake and felt like having a chunk to eat. Can I get this lovely design yearbook?

  84. eudelsie swimmer says:

    This decoration is so beautiful, i am awaiting my copy.

  85. Carol Jefferson says:

    I love the cover can’t wait till its in stores .

  86. Janet Martin says:

    Absolutely stunning!!!!!!

  87. Joanne Clifton says:

    I have always loved the yearbook from the beginnng. Last years couture cakes were a little disappointing and since most people love buttercream, this years should be a big success. Most of my friends and relatives ask for a cake that they can “eat it all” and not have to peel away the majority of the fondant and leave nothing to enhance the cake. I also love that the wilton people always respond to my emails of suggestions. Thanks for all your hard work and amazing talents.

  88. Maria Eugenia Hands Gomez says:

    Magic! Wilton is magic. The 2014 year book cover tell us how Wilton brings magic to us!


  89. Phyl says:

    Can’t wait to get my hands on the 2014 yearbook. Been trying to collect them all. Thanks Wilton

  90. Niniek says:

    Beautiful! When & where can I get this book in Indonesia?

  91. lucy says:

    preciosos , felicidades .

  92. Chris says:

    I’ve been doing cakes for 28 years and I’m still amazed at all the new designs that the Wilton staff members create. Love the new front cover and can’t wait to see the inside.

  93. I wish the books were more like the books in the 80’s and 90’s. They had more of a variety of cakes to make. Also, I would like to see some of the cake pans come back. Certain ones like Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny hold the bass drum, Rudolph, Winnie the Pooh, etc. Where can we find the old pans that you retired if we would like to purchase them?

    Thanks, Roxanne

  94. I am so glad you are putting a cake on the front cover that is off buttercream.

  95. Tamara walker says:

    This is a beautiful cake glad to hear we r going back to doing some
    Buttercream we seem to do so much with fondant now days we have
    Forgotten what really got us started


    Me encuentro muy interesada en adquirir el libro. Vivo en Colombia y me gustaría saber el precio y fecha para adquirirlo. Las publicaciones traen fotografías?. GRACIAS

  97. Laurie says:

    I’d bet my oldest daughter would used the cake, having me make it if she ever got married again. I made her first Wedding cake and everybody loved it…I taught myself using the Wilton Cake Decorating Books back in !974 when I was in the tenth grade. It is an awesome looking Cake…Is it JUne Yet? Please? 1 month and counting…

  98. Susan J. Sias, WMI & Chocolatier says:

  101. Sharyn says:

    The cover is so ‘now’, it has that WOW factor that will draw people to buy, enjoy and devour what’s on offer inside its beautiful pages. In saying that I am so incredibly disappointed that purchases can only be shipped within the US. I am in Australia and love looking at your site and would buy so many your delicious products. Is there any chance that you will expand to ship overseas in the future ?

    Again love the cover wish you shipped to Canada. I only buy Wilton products. I took all cake decorating classes from Michaels here in Canada. Would Wilton ever add a new coarse making 3D characters? I would be there taking that coarse for sure. Again can’t wait until that book gets here to Canada.
    Thank you

  118. Toni Boehm says:

    Love, love, love it!!!

    Wowwww. This is lovely, cant wait to have this book. Really wish it will not be difficult to supply it to Nigeria.

  123. Adesola Yussuff says:

    This is beautiful, keep it up Wilton and happy anniversary in advance.

    • Carol Jefferson says:

      Thanks Steve,yes I seen it brought the 3D maker already I just think it would be nice to run a coarse the products would fly off the shelves anyway thanks so much I guess it’s something to think about.
      Thank you for your reply.

  124. DM says:

    I have seen many steampunk inspired cakes-have to say I am underwhelmed by this one. Doesn’t seem to be anything “new” or “cutting edge” about this cake. I always look to Wilton for inspiration but in this case the design seems tired to me. Sorry-it’s a miss for me, hope the designs inside are better.

  125. June Rainbow says:

    I look forward to seeing the new book. I hope that you have an e-book version available. I would highly recommend to your marketing department to consider publishing an electronic version of your yearbook without including any Wilton products in it – when a product is referenced in the recipe, make it a hot-link in the ebook when it appears in a recipe – that would allow all hot-links and quick ordering capability if linked to ecommerce within the recipe. If Wilton continues down the path of including all products in their yearbook, I think it’s a bad idea as I feel I’m paying you to put your product catalog together – and most companies now have electronic rather than printed catalogs – save yourselves the print fees and keep your catalog electronic. It will improve your customer affinity.

  126. Marci says:

    Been a Wilton customer for almost 40 years and while the cover cake is nice, there is just something missing for me–almost like it’s a “Barbie-fied” version of Steampunk. Obviously though, lots of others loved it, but there are ALWAYS goodies to be found in the Wilton catalogs. Even though I only now decorate for family and friends due to extreme arthritis, I’m always finding new ideas & techniques every year and have begun to teach another generation (or two) to carry on the tradition of fantastic cakes.

  127. Karen says:

    Wow!!!! Don’t know how you do it – year after year. Looking forward to what us inside.

  128. I absolutely love the cover. can’t wait to purchase the book. My opinion only. Best cover thus far.

    Great job, I voted for this one. LOVE your products, have been using them for years. Have taken several of your classes, and always want more. Can’t wait for new ones to come out. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new book!!!!

  131. Pat says:

    The cover is great! I too collect the yearbooks and I would be terribly disappointed if you did not offer them in print. The online version would definitely be beneficial to a big part of your customers but what about the people that don’t have access to a computer but still love to decorate and get ideas from your wonderful publication? Just something to think about. I love to have the book in my hand and study it and really look at everything that is inside. “If it is not broke don’t fix it”. Thanks for all the years you have provided “therapy” for me.

  132. ANUSHA says:

    Wow!!!! I look forward to see the new book also it’s seems very helpful tips for us.

  133. wendy says:

  135. wanda says:

    I look forward to see the new challenges that Wilton shows in their yearbooks.I like it when Wilton takes cake decorating into a totally different direction.I can’t wait to see what Wilton has in store for us in June release of the newest yearbook.

  136. Georgina Leal says:

    WOW!!!can’t wait to see the inside of the book!

  137. kay says:

    Well done! It’s an amazing looking cake and most likely a great book.. why not ship outside of the US? There are thousands of people who love to bake where I am from and around the world.
    Just a thought.

  138. PAT J. says:

    The cake pattern look’s great,but I have a question?,why pay for a cake that you cann’t eat,pay for something you can eat and enjoy
    with family,friends,loveones,neighbor’s,with the decation’s made from buttercream,royal icing,so your families will tell others how good everything was and watch your bussiness grow faster,better I have been doing cakes for over 43yrs. Ihave been told that YOU can’t eat
    foundant,because it is very bitter,.Pay for something that everyone
    can sit down and enjoy,Ipromise you they will tell others about a wounderfull cake ,pie ,candy,cookies,balls,ect.;if they can enjoy it.
    I would like to be on your mailing list of WILTON CAKES BOOK,because I have collected wilton for so many years too!.
    I get a very realaxing feeling when I do have time to relax just to goback looking over the yeras of Wilton Cakes.,people now day’s don’t want to pay and baker for all the hard work that is put in
    the time for making a great wounderfull cake or ecter,because of the icing either to bitter or that dibetic’s can’t eat enjoy that
    would shoout everyone tastebud’s. Keep up the good work Wilotn
    maybe in time thing’s will pickup as the world goes on thur the new beginers,and for the old school decater’s that love to do cakes and ect.things,by keeping thing’s very simply.I personal have enjoyed WILOTN FOR MANY YEARS,hope to keep on enjoying WILTON, untill
    I can’t hold the things to do any longer.Wilton YOU HAVE DONE A WOUNDERFULL JOB OVER THE MANY YEARS SO KEEP in mind how the world is in the shape NOW!!. PLEASE RELY BACK TO ME THANK;S PAT J.

  141. Teresa says:

    I am so happy that others besides myself, wanted you to do more buttercream cakes. The others might be great looking, but doesn’t taste the same as buttercream. I enjoy getting compliments about how good the icing taste and look forward very much to getting the new yearbook. Thanks for listening to your readers. Hears looking to the next fifty!

    I brought my first Wilton year book in 2013. Love it and all Wilton stuff, just still annoyed that you don’t post to England or have an English distributor. It’s a pain looking around and trying to find the Wilton things I want, there is also stuff I want that you can not get in England
