Good afternoon everyone.

It is with tremendous heart break that I sit here and write this post to you all.  Being a cake decorating instructor has been one of the best jobs I have ever had the privilege to do.

Unfortunately, Wilton let me know yesterday morning they have decided to cancel their entire class program in the United States and Canada. My last day of teaching their class program will be March 31st.

Wilton’s unique program brought the ability to create beautiful cakes into retail stores and into our homes for over 50 years.

Over the last decade with the shifts in generations and advancement with technology customers and students have changed with how they want to shop and learn.  Many Wilton classes saw a steep decline in enrollment for their in person classes.  For Wilton to survive as a company, they had to make the hard decision on what to do with a quickly growing program that was becoming unprofitable.  After market research and talking with thousands of their students their message was sent loud and clear that in person classes was not going to be able to remain a viable option for cake decorating classes.

Because of the feedback received Wilton made their decision to end all in person classes in the United States and Canada effective March 31, 2018.  They are choosing to focus on more technology based learning formats.

Wilton has been teaching in person classes for over 50. This was a wonderful and unique program for so many years because with their classes and practice it was an affordable skill anyone could learn.

I have had thousands of students through my classes since the fall of 2007.  It was a wonderful opportunity granted to me and I have met many wonderful people, heard many outstanding life stories and seen some absolutely fantastic cakes, cupcakes, cookies etc decorate by you all.

What will I do, and where will I go from here?  I have a few things I am looking into and options on what I can do for those who are still interested in the in person classes.  As I know more, decide on things and get through the next few weeks with sorting this all out I will update you.

In the mean time you will be able to find me doing live streaming with crafts and gaming at Carolyn Is Crafty.  Twitch is a free to use program for you.  All you need to do is create an account and click on that link. You will be able to watch me live when I am streaming.  It has a chat room style interface for you to be able to “talk” and interact with me.

You can also find me via the following Social Media platforms





I am also still working as the Education Coordinator at the Joann Fabric here in town.  I manage the classroom program that they have and will be teaching sewing, crochet, quilting and if they decide to proceed with their own food crafting classes, that as well.


It has been an honor and privilege to have been your Certified Wilton Method Instructor all these years. I wish each and every one of you the best.


Confectionately yours,
