I live in Greece and thus cant follow any of the decorating classes I have often read about in the forum.
Can you please suggest any books that offer a more step-by-step approach for a beginner like me? I have already purchased the 3 books of The international Scholl of sugarcraft, the Confetti Cakes, Enchanted Cakes, the Home Guide to Cake Decorating and Cakes to inspire and Desire, as well as the on line tutorials of Lorraine McKay
Also, can you please tell me if there is a site based in Europe that offers cake decorating supplies?
Thank you for all your valuable help,

post #2 of 4 do european shipping, as do
i havent used these ones but they have been recommended to me and

carol deacon and debbie browns books are good fo caracters and noveltey cakes.
colette peters books are beyond what a newbie can do, but are so gorgeous, and give you something to aim towards, and you can pick out little bits to try. plus in cakes to dream on, theres some good step by step instructions.
Sweet & Simple Party Cakes by May Clee-Cadman is a good one too.
anything by alan dunn is good for sugar flowers too.

Toba Garret has a great book called Professional Cake Decorating. It has lots of great techniques, from piping to modeling and gumpaste flowers.

If you want DVDs, Sharon Zambito's (Sugarshack) DVDs are wonderful for learning to stack, ice, and apply fondant.
