For a lot of years, the only cake decorating books I bought were a couple of Wilton yearbooks. There's enough techniques to practice in the center section of it to keep you busy for a long time.

Check your local library for other cake decorating books. The library here has Debbie Brown and Collette Peters books, plus a lot of older books with some really interesting techniques that I didn't want to try, but that were really neat to read about.

check www.abebooks.com
I buy all of my cake books there. I paid half of Ebay's price on Debbie Brown's Favourite Character cakes! icon_biggrin.gif Maybe then you can get more than one!

Perhaps my question was not clear enough.

I would like to know which cake books are favoured.

What is your favourite cake book?

It does depend on the type of decorating you do.
Are you all for fondant or b'cream?
Wedding cakes or kids/b'day types?

I prefere to work in b'cream so my recommendation would be Wilton's Encyclopedia Vol 3. It is out of print but is available on eBay often.

If I could have only one, I'd buy Nicholas Lodge's International School of Sug arcr aft Book 2.
