Many retail craft outlets offer Wilton Cake Decorating Classes and actively look for instructors to teach students how to decorate their own Wilton-style cakes. If you have basic cake-decorating knowledge, you can work with these retail outlets to host your own Wilton Cake Decorating classes and make a little extra money. According to its website,, this 80-year-old company is an industry leader in cake decorating, quality bakeware and food crafting.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Take a cake-decorating class to learn the basics or just refresh your skills. Begin with basic classes, and advance to the expert classes where you will learn decorating with fondant, tiers and other advanced skills.

  2. 2

    Fill out the Wilton Instructor Screening form at Include information about your skills, your availability as an instructor and how far you would be willing to travel for classes.

  3. 3

    Gather the tools needed for your classes. Once Wilton has accepted you into the instructor program, Wilton will provide you with a list of necessary tools to conduct your classes.

  4. 4

    Find a Wilton Method Instructor opening in your area once Wilton has accepted your screening form. Instructor openings are regularly updated at Wilton's instructor site online.

Tips and warnings

  • If there are no current openings in your area, Wilton will place your information on hold until an opening becomes available. To better qualify for openings, be willing to travel to openings 30 to 50 miles from your area, especially if you live in a small town.
