Unlike the kits for the basic class and the flower class which you have to heavily supplement with other purchases, this kit contains pretty much everything you need to take the Wilton Fondant and Gum Paste class (except the fondant and gum paste, the roll and cut mat, the large rolling pin.. and maybe a few other things I can't think of off the top of my head). Also, compared to the old kits you get a lot more for your money (granted, you're still paying $35 for a bunch of plastic that cost a few dollars to make, but even though its still technically a rip off, its a very useful rip off! Some of the things you only use once or twice in class, but I've enjoyed working with fondant much more than buttercream or royal icing so I've been making cakes and flowers outside of class, and they give you enough in this kit to experiment for a while)

I think you can use this kit even if you don't take the class and want to learn cake decorating on your own (but buy the Wilton Gum Paste and Fondant Lesson Plan if you do that). The other two classes I felt like I benefited from having an instructor to guide me, whereas this class I really could have done on my own with the book and the kit.

Also (in case you were looking for a bit of unsolicited adivce) Wilton fondant and gum paste taste terrible. Even the best store-bought fondants taste sort of "ehh". but you can make your own! Wilton's website has recipes for marshmallow fondant and rolled fondant. Both are good. Marshmallow is easier to make and tastes better to me.. and for gum paste, buy Wilton Gum- Tex or a product called tylose and make your own. It tastes a million times better and saves lots of money!

I have not had a class and got this kit, although it comes with no instructions on how to use it, you can check out some Youtube tutorials that'll guide you. The set is pretty basic, so if you think you'll be working a lot with fondant save your money and get a nicer/bigger set of fondant cutter and tools.

I have only used a couple products in this kit so I will only comment on those...the painting brush in this kit is a piece of crap and I certainly expected more of wilton...I couldnt even use it because the bristles were falling out constantly. However, the other products i have used (pattern wheel and a few impression items) are good quality and I am quite pleased.

A great place to start and get ideas for fondant. If you haven't used fondant, try it, it's easy. Google 'marshmallow fondant'- it's easy and people seem to like the taste better. The little book that goes with this is probably worth the price to get with it, to help with ideas.

There is some overlap with the Wilton Gum Paste Flowers Set, but they make a good combo. It is also cost effective rather than buying items individually.

I needed this kit for the course i signed up for, and it had everything i needed. Although it had some of the same parts as the wilton flower kit i purchased and you can tell by comparison that the student kit items are not quite of the same quality- but this does not mean the kit wont work perfectly to make flowers!

I used these products in the Wilton Course 3. They were very easy to use and I was able to learn to make a variety of beautiful flowers and bows using gum paste and fondant. The only thing I did not like was the quality of the little brush that comes with the kit (bristles came off when I used gum glue to adhere flowers to a fondant-covered cake). I believe Wilton has replaced it with something sturdier in newer kits for this course. I have found the Wilton kits to be great!
