I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)
The Wilton Tip Saver is the quick and easy tool you need to restore any size tip to its original shape. Simply place the tip over its pointed or cone shape end, put on the cover and twist back and forth.
Instructions To straighten tops of standard tips, slide tip into narrow end of barrel-shaped section. Fit knob end of cone shaped section into tip as shown and twist back and forth, using light pressure, until top of tip is straightened. Loosen with your finger or a pencil to remove. For large tips, place tip into wide end of barrel-shaped section, and follow instructions above. To straighten openings of tips 1 to 12 or to open star tips, push pointed end of cone shaped section into bottom of tip and through opening. Turn gently back and forth until tip regains original shape.
