I went in to pick up a book for a Christmas gift for a friend and, of course, I just happened to be near the baking books while trying to get to the cash register (that's my story to my hubby anyway...just in case he asks) and saw a book called "The Essential Guide to Cake Decorating" put out by Borders. I was skeptical...but its great! And its only $10!! You have to check it out if you have a Borders near you.
I bought that book too!! The cakes are just gorgeous in it!!
Yep, my Dh bought me that book a yr or so ago...one of my favorite books !
