Cake Byte: CakeSpy Gets To Tour the Wilton Test Kitchens!

Now, I don't want you to get too jealous, BUT.

In a little over a week, on June 9, your dear CakeSpy (along with a select handful of other sweetie-bloggers) will get the opportunity to attend a super-awesome event at the Wilton facilities in the Chicago area.

What is Wilton, you ask? Well, most cake lovers won't have to ask. But, if you aren't familiar with the name:

“For more than 80years, Wilton has been the industry leader in cake decorating, quality bakeware and food crafting. Wilton classes, publications and products help millions of people create celebrations filled with color, sweetness and fun.”

Basically, if you've ever decorated a cake, used a decorative cake pan, or piped icing onto something, you've probably used Wilton products.

I know! Awesome!

Featured events will include an overview and tour, a decorating workshop, a decorating challenge, and--the part that excites me most--a tour of the Wilton Test Kitchens. I know--it's the most exciting thing since I got to tour a butter factory!

And--even better--I get to meet in person several of the sweet dessert blog-writers whose work I admire. YES!

Now, don't worry, because even though you all can't be there with me, I promise to take pictures and take notes so that it can be just like you were there with me. K? Totally promise.
