We very much enjoy hearing from our web site visitors through the guestbook and email. Here are some of the questions we are most frequently asked.
Do you have an online catalog or one you could send me?
We're sorry, but we don't have anything available at this time. The original intent in setting up this site was to promote the store, to have another medium of advertisement. We have received so many requests for a catalog or other ordering information that we are investigating the possibility of creating some type of online retail catalog & ordering system. There are no plans to produce a printed catalog. (Since we do carry everthing listed in the Wilton Yearbooks, these can serve as catalogs to many of the products we carry.) In the meantime, if there's something specific you are looking for, drop us a line.
Do you have a recipe for _______________ frosting?
The Wilton Yearbooks have a number of different recipes for icings and glazes, plus one for making your own rolled fondant. This annual magazine/catalog is a terrific resource not only for these, but for all the ideas, tips and techniques it contains. The catalog section is indispensible for showcasing all the Wilton products available for every facet of cake baking and decorating. If you're unable to find a copy locally, email us and we'll send you information on ordering a copy from us.
How do you make black icing?
There is black food coloring for just that purpose. One thing to be aware of though, is that like red food coloring, black is a strong color and too much can make your icing bitter and can bleed off onto its surroundings. Mix in just enough to get a dark gray - it will darken considerably with exposure to the air as it dries.
Do you have a banner I could use on my site to link back to you?
When we started getting requests for a link banner, we asked our webmaster to make one up for us. Here's what he came up with (Since we use white backgrounds, we put a border around it here to isolate it from the rest of the page.):
If you would like to use this banner on your site, download a copy of it to your drive and upload it to your own site. (PC: Click the banner with your right mouse button and save picture. Mac: Click and hold the mouse button until the pop-up menu is displayed, then choose save picture.) DO NOT link directly to this image.
Now click and drag your pointer to highlight the following text, copy (PC: Ctrl-C, Mac: Command-C), and paste (PC: Ctrl-V, Mac: Command-V) it into your page:
<CENTER><A HREF="http://www.fantasyinfrosting.com"><IMG SRC="AdBanner2.gif" WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" BORDER="0" ALT="Fantasy in Frosting"></A></CENTER>
Although you are not obligated to do so, we would appreciate it if you would drop us a line and let us know you are linking to us. If you have any problems or further questions, our webmaster will be happy to help in any way he can.
