Earlier this year my friends began talking about the Wilton Tent Sale. I had no clue what they were talking about. Apparently every year the giant Wilton warehouse in Woodridge, IL has a huge tent sale. Wilton sells thousands of their products - from cooking pans to scrapbooking paper - for huge discounts. As an amateur cake decorator, I knew I had to attend.
While at the Tent Sale I found the Wilton 101 Piece Tool Caddy for $73.00. This Caddy normally retains for $144.99. This was my big purchase at the tent sale and I'm glad I found it.
The caddy is the same size as your average tackle box and is set up in much the same way. It has a large storage area to hold the bigger accessories and a lift-out tray which holds tips, couplers, brushes and icing colors. The caddy is a two toned blue - a light teal base and a dark teal lid and tray. It is made of very durable and strong plastic.
The caddy comes with 101 different pieces. It includes everything from icing colors to a fondant roller and seemingly everything in between. It comes with "8 incing colors, 3 Couplers (2 Standard, 1 Large); 2 Tip/Coupler Dishwasher and Storage Bags; Tip Cleaning Brush; 24 12-in. Disposable Decorating Bags; 3 Professional Reusable Decorating Bags; 4 Tip Covers; Tip Saver; Flower Nail; Flower Lifter; Garland Marker; 3 Spatulas; Decorating Cakes Book; 20 All-Purpose Disposable Decorating Gloves; Practice Board with Patterns; 2 Bake-Even Strips; 8 oz. Clear Vanilla and No-Color Butter Flavors; Cake Leveler; Quick Ease Roller; Easy-Glide Fondant Smoother; Decorating Brush; and 18 Decorating Tips."
This caddy saved me a ton of money as buying all of these items individually would be well over $200. I really liked that this caddy includes a 101 accessories that you will use often when decorating cakes. They don't include useless junk or unnecessary accessories.
I'm am exteremly glad to live near the Wilton warehouse and the amazing tent sale. However, this caddy would be worth it even if I didn't get it for half price. If you enjoy decorating cakes and need a great caddy with all the necessary accessories, the Wilton tool caddy is the way to go.
