June 22nd, 2010 by Marvin Oakes

Over the past 4 decades, the Wilton Yearbook has been inspiring home bakers and professionals alike with amazing cake decorating ideas and illustrated step-by-step techniques for cake construction, icing decorations, candy making, recipes, and more.

2011 Wilton YearbookNow, the 2011 Wilton Yearbook is here—and it’s one of our most exciting ever! As you browse through all the exciting decorated cakes and treats inside, it’s easy to picture the sensational parties you can create in the months to come.

As always, the excitement starts on the cover, which we revealed piece-by-piece on this website to tremendous response. Imagine being able to take our big top cake to the birthday party. The 2011 Wilton Yearbook is filled with birthday cheer any kid will love. With its companion circus carousel cake, we had to expand the cover to fit all the fun!

You’ll find many more fantastic circus and jungle theme designs in our special section, “Party Animals!”. With these sensational cakes, you can really make a birthday boy or girl feel special. Check out the multi-level Amazon cake with a river of color flow connecting the tiers. The kids will love to take their own cookie jungle pals right from the cake, including lions, hippos, giraffes and zebras.

The 2011 Wilton Yearbook is packed with great designs for every occasion. Create the perfect holiday centerpiece with our gingerbread skating village. Charm shower guests with a cake that brings the “Hey Diddle Diddle” nursery rhyme to life. Whatever you are celebrating, there is a perfect design for you in the 2011 Wilton Yearbook.

Now it’s time to discover the Yearbook excitement for yourself. I hope you’ll turn to the 2011 Wilton Yearbook often as you plan a year of great celebrations.

    I have heard on facebook that if you sign up for a class in June you can get the yearbook for free. How do you do that? Or is that up to certain retailers? I paid for a class in June but the class does not start until July. Thanks.

      I just completed 2 courses in June and we did not receive a yearbook. We got the course book free with each course but the yearbook is not included.

    We’ll contact each of you directly to see what we can do, because we certainly want you to be satisfied. In both these cases, the offers are made by specific retailers, not by Wilton. So, in general, please check with your local retailer for their specific offers and procedures. Thanks for your interest in Wilton and in cake decorating!

      I paid for the class in June but now am taking the cake decorating class this July. The syllabus that was handed to us had the offer for the free year book, I wonder if I can still be eligible for it.

      Thank you.

    Michael’s is offering the free yearbook. But, the offer ends July 1. Wilton classes will be 50% off again in the month of July.

    I have been buying Wilton Yearbooks since 1976. I have loved every one and never been disappointed…..until now.

    I am crushed. Wilton (to me) was synonymous with beautiful, high quality cakes. Lots of icing flowers, swags and lattices (especially the wedding cakes). Now it seems to have devolved to cartoonish cakes. Yes, they are involved and take time and effort, but how unfortunate to not see the gorgeous cakes such as those that graced the pages in my very first yearbook.

    Had I known the yearbook would consist entirely of novelty, licensed characters and/or ‘contemporary’ cakes, including WEDDING CAKES, I truly do not believe I would have ordered it.

    Alas, next year I shall have to wait until the yearbook reaches Wal-Mart so I can peruse the pages and decide whether it is worth even buying.

    Hello! I have completed all 3 cake classes and have sent in for my Free 2011 yearbook it has been 5 weeks, would you be able to tell me if it has been mailed out to me yet?!

    Really liked the class 🙂
    Please advise

    Thank you

      It took every bit of 7 weeks to get mine. I ordered mine 6/7/2010 when I took the Fondant an Gumpaste Class. It was shipped from a site that is only 20 miles away from me. Hopefully you will get your’s soon!! =)

    I LOVE the Wilton yearbooks and I am really excited to see the 2011 one. Have you ever considered including the patterns with the yearbook? It would be so nice to have them all together like they are in your wonderful Cupcake Fun! book. It’s hard trying to find the pattern book. I’d be willing to pay the price of buying them alone, in order to buy them together.

  7. Tanya says:

    I sent in my offer for the free yearbook in June, but still have yet to receive it. Is there any way to check on the status?

    I have previewed your the 2011 yearbook and loved it. I think it shows that wilton is keeping up with the times(thank you). I can’t wait to buy the yearbook and patterens,so I can try the pillow cake and those cute little animals. I just love the updating you have done.

    I sent my forms for the free year book on May 25 and have not yet recieved it. it’s been 11 weeks. I just found it that The form says to allow 6-8 weeks for delivery from the close of the program.
    so does this mean that it’s 6-8 weeks from July 1st and not actually when I mailed it???? so it will be Septmeber or more till I receive it? crazy!!!! I will call customer service to see what the rules are here!

  11. tessy says:

    Hi, I did two of the Wilton Courses, and was told that I would receive the Yearbook if I sent the payment voucher.. I sent the forms sometime in June. It is now over 6 months and I have still not received the book, and I have now been relocated to India.
    Can I hope to receive the Yearbook?

    please be kind enough to send me a copy of your 2011 catalog. my address is gama enterprises 171 eisontown road jonesville sc 29353

  13. Cheryl says:

    Why is it that you can find the year book easy enough, but it’s so hard to find the accompanying pattern books? They don’t even mention the pattern books hardly. It would be nice if they came as a set!

  14. Marilia Augusto says:

    Hi. I live in South Africa. Where can I get this book?

  15. Steph says:
