Wilton Cake Ideas and More, created by Wilton Industries, is an app with a host of different features. Look at beautiful cake designs in the Wilton Yearbook, follow step-by-step instructions in the kitchen for decorating cakes, or read their FAQ to find answers from Wilton’s experts to commonly asked questions by aspiring cake decorating. This app is completely free of charge.
