DISCLAIMER: The following post is only a review based on my personal experience. I have not received any compensation from The Wilton School, and I paid for my tuition and registration fee out-of-pocket.
Last Saturday I attended a 1-day class entitled “Basics of Cake Icing and Fillings” at The Wilton School in Darien, Illinois. While most of the classes at The Wilton School are hands-on, this was more of an instructional “watch and learn” type class. The instructor demonstrated how to make apricot filling, chocolate ganache, lemon curd, Italian buttercream, French buttercream, chocolate French buttercream, whipped cream frosting with stabilizer, and white chocolate cream cheese frosting. After the demonstrations, each student was given four store-bought cupcakes to decorate with the fillings and frostings as a take-home bonus. We also received printed recipes, two free frosting tips, and a 25% off discount from the retail store. The instructor herself was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Although the class was simple to me and would be considered easy for most of my blogging friends, it was well organized and professionally done. It definitely strengthened my understanding of frosting basics. If you take a peek at their website, extremely advanced courses are offered with industry-known guest instructors. I wouldn’t mind taking a few more classes myself.
