2017 WILTON FAIR AWARD GUIDELINES

Wilton Enterprises is pleased to help support your fair in the Decorated Cakes Division. Wilton "Best of Class" awards are offered for winning cakes with some type of bag and tip or rolled fondant cake decorating. If your fair has two separate age divisions, i.e., Junior and Adult, we will award one "Best of Class" award for each age division. If you have one division, we will award one "Best of Class". Only one "Best of Class" award is available for each division, adult or junior.

"Best of Class" winners may choose one of the following awards:

Cupcake Fun! (The newest Wilton publication)
Tiered Cakes Book
Cake Decorating Basics (DVD)

Wilton will also award one current "Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating" for each 1st prize winner in all cake decorating categories. Only five Yearbooks will be awarded to junior division and five Yearbooks to adult division. All "Best of Class" winners always receive a Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating along with their choice of "Best of Class" prize. There is no need to list your "Best" winner as a 1st prize winner. Therefore, five additional 1st prize
winners may be submitted.
