As A novice. I found this difficult due to lack of real tools, in my possession. Also,being a disabled person, I do feel that Wilton tools would help me in many, many ways. On the otherhand I found this to be an enjoyable and fun filled activity to do with my three year old granddaughter who LOVED it, no matter how she or her "Nanna" got messy. It was a joy and a lovely tradition to start for our holiday memories together...we are going to finish it and put it in our "holiday Memory" Book. We could also put our own signature on it and use many other candy and cookie decorations we had on had to make it our own. For us it didn't have to be perfect, especially due to my disabilities. Perhaps Wilton could think of tools suited for the handicap (rhumitism/arthritis) ....or list those tools already in existence that would be a special help to this older generation. We are both looking forward to many more Wilton Projects and thank Wilton industries for creating such a great sharing project for both the young and the old to share......HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!
