Protect Your Tools in Transport and Storage with the Wilton Tool Organizer

April 19th, 2012 by Traci Chapple

It seems like the longer I work for Wilton, the more I like to decorate cakes! I had to start somewhere, so last year I took the Wilton Method Decorating Basics Course (Course 1) to learn the basics of cake decorating. I found myself transporting and storing my tools in plastic bags and cardboard boxes. I asked myself, do other decorators have this same problem?

As a designer, my brain is constantly looking for ways to improve anything I do. This was no exception.

I began visiting other Wilton cake decorating classes to see what challenges other decorators have. I went to several retail stores, The Wilton School of Cake Decorating & Confectionery Art in Darien, IL, and into decorators’ homes to see how decorators Tool Organizer are trying to solve the problem of “mess.” Across the board, decorators have a “dirty” pile of tools, and a “clean” pile of tools.

Out of this the Wilton Tool Organizer was born. If you’re a cake decorating student, the organizer functions as small tool caddy with a divider to keep your “dirty” tools away from your “clean” ones! EVERYTHING from your Wilton Course One kit fits inside, so it’s super easy to grab this organizer and your cake to head to class.

If you’re a seasoned cake decorator, we think you’ll appreciate these other great features and uses:

  • Store your spatulasicing smoother and icing combs to prevent nicks and bending
  • Store small rolling pins and brushes
  • Organizer fits perfectly in the Decorator Preferred Carry-All Tote for easy storage or transport
  • Snap lock keeps lid secure in transportation
  • Organizer is 14 in. x 5.25 in.
  • Store icing decorating bags in one side, spatulas in the other side
  • Transport tools for on site cake set-up
  • Transport sprinkles, a cake server, and birthday candles to take with your cake to a party

The Wilton Tool Organizer will help simplify your life! By organizing your space and keeping your tools at your fingertips, this case will get you decorating faster and having more fun while you’re doing it!
