We’ve Got Decorating in the Bag

April 12th, 2012 by Traci Chapple

As I grow as a decorator, my collection of decorating tools is growing too! I had tubs all over my kitchen with random tips thrown here, my rolling pin thrown there. Decorating bags were in a cabinet across from everything else. I was lucky if I could ever track down my spatulas in the same place twice. I needed a storage solution that I could tuck into the hall closet and pull out when I got the itch to decorate. I needed the new Wilton Decorator Preferred Carry-All Tote!

This past weekend is a good example of why I love my new tote bag. Decorator Preferred Carry-All Tote I wanted to decorate a great cake for a spring event, and I knew my tote had everything I needed right inside. I went to my hall closet, and there it was, sitting just as nicely as the last time I tucked it back there.

I adore the fact that this tote will sit upright on its own and won’t tip over regardless of what’s inside. The long padded handles are easy to grab, fit great over my shoulder, and won’t dig in. So away we go to start decorating!

I set the tote bag up on the counter next to my decorating area. I can easily grab what I need out of the tote without having to go too far. I can also place things back in the tote as I finish using them. Brilliant!

I first pull out my icing color organizer and my tip organizer and set them where it will be easy to access what I need when I need it. I love that all of the new Wilton organizers fit perfectly into the tote bag, it makes it so easy to have my supplies ready to go.

I am a messy decorator. You’d think the more I decorate the less mess I’d make, but no such luck. I managed to get pink icing all over the handle of the tote bag. But have no fear – this fabric is grease and color resistant, so I was able to wipe it off with just a damp cloth.

The tote also has zippers on either side of the bag that can be unzipped to completely fold open the bag for thorough cleaning. Such a relief that my tote bag will keep looking great, no matter how messy I get!

I am looking forward to taking my next Wilton Decorating Class. I know this tote will be great for transporting my supplies from home, to the car, into the class, and back again. With the large base, I am confident that the bag won’t tip over as I’m driving around town.

The pockets on the front and back will make it so easy to throw my cell phone, keys and wallet in to eliminate the need to bring my purse along. One less thing to worry about!

The Wilton Decorator Preferred Carry-All Tote has been a real life-saver for me! I hope you will love it, too!

    Just love all your new items. I am from canada & can not order from wilton.com. I wish we could order from wilton;s it would be so much easier. I would love to order the tote bag but I do know where to order it from up here in Canada. Do you know where I can order the tote & other products from wilton up here in Canada.

    • Althea says:

      I will also appreciate the possiblity to order directly from wilton. I am from Czech republic and there is really limited sortiment of wilton tools.

      • Traci Chapple says:

        Hello Roxanne and Althea,

        Unfortunately, we do not offer international shipping just yet. You can look at our list of distributors in your area and see if they carry the items you are looking for. Look at: http://www.wilton.com/about/contact/intl_distrib.cfm for more information on international distributors.

        Thank you for your continued support of Wilton!

    I wrote to your appointed Malaysian distributor and did not get any reply from her.

  9. Helen says:

    When will it be available in stores?

  10. madeitwithlove says:

    We too have very little access to Wilton products here in England. Those who carry Wilton are few and far between and have no variety. It would be great if Wilton opened up here which would provide the rest of Europe accessibilty to so much more.

  13. Remy says:

    What are the measurements of the tote?

  14. Jeani Flanagan says:

    Love your products but I need a storage tote with wheels. I’m not able to carry a filled tote and I don’t think the plastic one available will stand up to going to frequent classes every week.
