Re: Icing cake

Except that Wilton US do not deliver to households in Switzerland.

I have a basic range of items directly from Wilton, US. If there is anything specific you are looking for, let me know, so I can check availability.

There are different restrictions in the EU and Switzerland regarding ingredients and E-numbers in edibles (decorations, sprinkles, colours), so not all edible items will be permitted for retail here.

Licensed Wilton items (Princesses, Cars, Spongebob, Spiderman etc.) will also not be supplied to Switzerland and some European countries because of copyright issues.

Please don't hesitate to PM for further info. Or you can contact me via the contact form in the shop.

I didn't post it as a link for supplies (you're by far the best in Switzerland) but rather for links on the how-to aspect of cake decorating. There's a bunch of information and forums available to find things out (if you don't want to buy a book)

Re: Icing cake

The closest I can find for you to make from scratch is royal icing:

I did realise that - just wanted to let people know that you can't order products from their website for delivery to Switzerland.

It's a great site for tutorials and a infinite source of ideas.

Thanks for the compliment, by the way.
