WILTON PUZZLE CAKES SET REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!
This is a really great review and giveaway. Wilton sent me the Puzzle Cakes Build-A-Cake Set. You can actually make a Bear with Balloons, a Fish with Bubbles, or a Turtle. You build them with shaped cupcakes. The set includes six round, six pie shape, six diamonds, and 6 half moon silicone cupcake cups. We waited to do this review because my oldest daughter C had her 25th birthday yesterday and my 12 year old, M, really wanted to use this set for her sister. Anyway, we made the bear with balloons. M mixed up the cake mix and filled the cups, after we placed them in the appropriate shape. When they were done baking and had cooled, we decorated with icing. We did use store bought, not the icing you make. All in all I believe it turned out very nice. It also works well because 1/2 my family likes chocolate icing and the other 1/2 vanilla. Everyone was happy! I think we are going to try the fish next, and make our icing. My grandmother used to bake cakes on the side and I loved to help her. She took several of the Wilton classes and became very good at what she did. I think I will need to work on my icing skills with the next couple of cakes.
This is a product I am enjoying sharing At the Fence. Wilton carries many other items for both amateur and professional bakers. As I stated before my grandmother made a home business out of doing birthday cakes, wedding cakes, etc. Their website carries cake pans, cookie cutters and supplies, candy molds, recipes, general supplies for baking, and they also share ideas for decorating. Wilton has a blog and a newsletter where you can gain more information.
