My how time flies! Wilton Educational Marketing launched its first cake decorating class in retail stores back in 1975. Since then 4,000,000 students have learned the art of cake decorating in a Wilton course. Imagine the millions of cakes that have been made for celebrations and the friendships that have been made while taking one of the four Wilton courses taught at retailers all around the world. We are talking about some pretty “sweet” memories!
During the month of October Wilton will celebrate its 4,000,000th student with a Sweepstakes! You can win an all expense paid trip to the Wilton School in Darien, IL or one of thirty-five $100.00 Wilton gift certificates for purchases direct through Wilton. Enter the Sweepstakes by visiting 4million.wilton.com starting on October 1 or be automatically registered when you participate in a Wilton course during the month of October. There is no purchase required. Either way you can “take the cake”, or “have your cake and eat it too!” To find out where Wilton classes are taught in your community, check out the Wilton method class locator.
I am one of Wilton’s 4,000,000 students! My Mom and I took our first course together in 1989. I wanted to create theme parties for my kids with the cake matching the plates and napkins and everything. The Wilton courses I took not only helped me be a “supermom” with my kids, but they changed my life. I had so much fun and success taking the classes that later I became a Wilton Method Instructor!
In my mind’s eye, I am imagining 4,000,000 cake decorating students presenting a cake to a smiling friend or their family! I am really excited to work for a company that has touched so many lives in a positive way.
