Happy anniversary to us! We’re celebrating Wilton’s 85th anniversary of making it easier for you to decorate! How does a company that’s been helping you celebrate special occasions since the 1920s celebrate a special occasion of our own? With cake, of course! But not just ANY cake and not just one! Through the coming months, we’ll be creating cakes that capture iconic imagery of each decade since our founding, starting with the ’20s cake. We’ll also be asking for your input on the remaining designs—more on that below. But first, let’s talk about the kickoff cake in our Decades of Cake series! Read the rest of this post »

We like to tinker, put stuff together, figure out how it works, play with cool tools, and conquer challenges. Something else I like to do – spend time with my kids. But I will be honest – I am not as patient or as selfless with my time as my wife. I want to find something they like doing but I like to do as well – yeah, I guess that makes me just a really old kid. So, I am always on the look-out for something fun to do with my children.
