How do I go about finding out which are the best or most educational cake decorating instructional dvd's on the market? Are there any favorites of CC members that you would recommend?

I have come across a few names in the threads here on CC but I don't know of any websites to look into this.

Thanks for your help! icon_biggrin.gif

Here are some websites for you to look at. There are more, but these are the ones I know of off the top of my head. You can learn gumpaste, icing a cake or covering it in fondant or stacking it, or sculpting it.

I highly recommend sugarshack's DVDs www.sugaredproductions.com They are reasonable and very detailed. She covers butter cream, stacking and fondant and will have more on the way next year.

I have to say, Sharon's dvds are the best I've seen so far.

I love Sharon and Jennifers DVD's both are wonderful. Nicholas Lodge also does wonderful DVD's and you can learn so much from them.

Does anyone know of animal gumpaste/fondant dvd tutorials?? I don't really want online tutorials, I'd like dvd I have a rainforest baby shower cake to do in less than a month. Summernoelle gave me great written instructions, but I'm more of a visual learnericon_smile.gif[/u]

Kaye Unisa makes some for animals but the DVDs are a bit pricey IMHO.

I have Sharon's Buttercream DVD and both of Jennifer Dontz's DVDs. They are both wonderful. I want to get Sharon's stacking and fondant DVDs.

Both ladies are immensely talented and you can learn from both of them. If budget allows - get both!

I have all three of Sharons and they are priceless. I can't believe how much I learned. I just ordered Jennifers.
I also ordered Michele Fosters Bloomin Garden. I'd really like a good gumpaste flower dvd.
