About Us

Founded in 1929, Wilton is a marketer of consumer products and a nationally recognized brand of cake decorating and bakeware products serving over 105 countries. The Wilton story began in 1929 with one man’s passion and talent for making confectionery art. Dewey McKinley Wilton began his career in 1912 as a candymaker, eventually becoming an expert in the field. In the 1920’s he traveled internationally, teaching the great pastry chefs of Europe the art of pulled sugar. They in return, taught him the time-honored traditions of the art of decorating. Over the years Mr. Wilton formulated his own technique, the Wilton Method, combing the best of the past and present European artistry with an American desire for excellence and simplicity. The company continued to evolve under the direction of Dewey McKinley and Norman Wilton and would later include the sale of cake decorating products.
