Besides the Wilton standards, can anyone recommend some of their absolute favourite decorating books?
the whimsical bakehouse and confetti cakes are pretty good.
A few of my favorites: Confetti Cakes by Elisa Strauss, Romantic Wedding Cakes by Kerry Vincent, Colette's Wedding Cakes by Colette Peters, Cakewalk by Margaret Braun, Quick and Clever Party Cakes by Lindy Smith, Christening cakes by Linda Pawsey. Happy Reading!
One of the most overlook books that Wilton ever put out is their Encyclopedia, Vol 3.
For fondant: Fay Gardner(sp?) has one that is a step-by-step on making flowers
I loved my "Writing on cakes" by Mary Ford!
I love Colette Peters' Cakes tor dream on, and any of the Debbie Brown books are great as well!
In addition to the greats books named above...you may want to just visit your local Barnes and Nobles and just browse the books for yourself, but first walk down through the discounted books (sometimes you can find some great things there).
