Wilton School of Decorating and Confectionary Art
The Wilton School of Cake Decorating and Confectionery Art is a private vocational school that has been the world leader in cake decorating education for generations. It was in 1929 that Dewey McKinley Wilton first began to teach the now-famous “Wilton Method”. The Wilton School Mission is to provide excellence in cake decorating education for technique mastery and inspiration for creative expression by school graduates. It starts with age-old cake decorating traditions, enhanced by constantly developing and ever-refining creativity. It continues with Mr. Wilton’s philosophy that “learning is best achieved through class participation”. This educational approach is embodied in today’s greatly expanded Wilton School faculty, curriculum and advanced techniques.
