May the 1982 Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating be with you

The Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating 1982 had been on TVTA’s ‘to get’ list for a few years …

Mainly because of this cake-tastic Star Wars ad …

Star Wars ESB cake pans, candles, molds and toppers. The Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating 1982. US.

And this …

Star Wars ESB cake toppers. The Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating 1982. US.

But the US baking publication also serves up some other interesting pop culture goodies …

Like these …

And these …

And these …

And these …

Then there’s this cheestastic and delightful happy family in the kitchen ad … hotdog! I think they’re making a happy lion cake …

And … You’ll be a baking star …

And finally, Wooof’s favourite, a most adorable big cat big cake cover … it’s the happy lion …

Right, we’re off to find our aprons and chef’s hats for a round of happy lion cake making in the TVTA kitchen. Until next time, you can have your cake magazine but don’t ever eat it, and remember kids … a lion is not just for Christmas but forever. Thank you for sweetly decorating with us 🙂

  1. My aunt used to do this for her kids when they were younger! Being born in 1982 myself, she was out of the cake decorating when I was having my own birthday cakes. But seeing this was a wonderful flashback to what she used to do. Aw, how fun!

  2. This brought back good memories of walking around the local hobby store as a kid. I always looked at all the great cake pans hoping I would get a Star Wars or Disney cake over the normal rectangle boring cake for my birthday. Yeah, still hoping…lol

  3. These are amazing! I had no idea cake decorating was such a big thing! Magazines and catalogues for decorative treats!

    … I tell you what, though, I’m now in the mood for some cake to go with my coffee!!

  4. Thanks TVTA…for making me feel hungry! Those Star Wars tins would have been high on my list of “need to buy” items. And here’s a little question for you…do you know the connection between Cookie Monster from Sesame St and Star Wars? Well, the puppeteer (and voice actor) for Cookie was in fact Frank Oz who also operated Yoda! (And even more unbelievable, Frank Oz was the voice and puppeteer for Miss Piggy!) Another great post thanks!

    • Hi FT, yes the talented Frank Oz. Did you see the episode of The Muppets with Mark Hamill in it in full Luke Bespin costume with C-3PO and R2-D2? I think Chewie as well. As a drummer my fave Muppet is Animal and the others in the Dr Teeth band, Janice, Zoot, Lips and Floyd. I also liked Miss Piggy, Pigs in Space and the Swedish Chef. Very happy times watching the Muppets on TV, and I almost have anough ads now to make a Muppets / Sesame Street post 🙂

      • Hi TVTA, I have seen that episode, where Mark draws his blaster and points it at Fozzie. I think I related more with Rolff the piano playing Muppet when I was younger as I am a keyboard player. But nowadays I’m more like Steadtler and Waldorf 😀 !
