I subscribe to American Cake Decorating and Mailbox News.

What kind of decorating do you do? What are you interested in most?
There are very few available.
Both ACD & MBN are more for the hobby decorator. They give some very short, general information on how something was created.
ACD has more instructions whereas MBN is mostly pix sent in by folks like us here on this board.

There are a couple of great English ones available - " Cake Craft & Decoration " & " Wedding Cakes, A design source ".
Then, there's " Modern Wedding Cakes " ( an Australian magazine ) - there is another Aussie one but I can't think of the name right now !

Hope these help icon_biggrin.gif

I find American Cake Decorating a little on the expensive side but I really enjoy both it and Mailbox News. ACD always has a project cake that they teach you to make and have experienced decorators do the tutorial. Also, if you send Mailbox News pictures of your cakes they put them in the magazine. Its kind of fun seeing your cake in print!

Monkess-Yes, I LOVE that magazine. Read it for hours when it comes. My family thinks I'm nuts. Only real 'cake' people understand. I'm not a pro, just hobby baker though with no classes under my belt. If your a pro, it might be boring.

Oh, forgot that there is a coupon for subscription on the back of one of my cake flour boxes. Wish I had seen that before I paid the subscription..sorry, dont remember which one but the prices was a lot cheaper.

I ordered a back issue of ACD and MBN just to see what they are like and I enjoyed them so much I subscribed to both. It's a bit pricey as far as subscriptions go, but what isn't nowadays?

Enjoy your day!
