Baking Stuff

Just a quick note about Wilton’s cake-decorating supplies.


The icing colours are no longer safe. The lady on the other end of the phone wasn’t too clear as to why … either they’ve changed manufacturing practices, or the labelling was never consistent in the first place.

It used to be that they were all peanut-free, then we started finding ones (in our own cupboards) that listed the dreaded may contain tagline. So Krystyne called, and since then we have had to scramble to find other alternatives.

So far, we’ve used liquid food colouring and Kool-Aid mix. Between the two, the liquid food colouring works better, but nothing like the way the Wilton icing colours did.

The search continues …


  1. Thought you might find this link of interest
    On their homepage they state "All of our colors are 100% kosher, gluten free and manufactured in a facility free of peanuts and tree nuts."
    I'm always on the lookout for cake decorating supplies too.

  2. Thanks, Colleen! Do you know of any retail chains that carry them as well, or they just available through their site?
