What would they be?

My budget is seriously non-existent the moment, but I'm scrimping hardcore because I just HAVE to learn something and there are no classes around me after Wilton classes.

What DVD could you just not live without? (Just as an FYI, i see the Sugarshack Buttercream one as a favorite on here, but I work with SMBC so I'm not sure enough of that DVD would work for my uses?)

Which book? Which one is the most clear to learn from, has the best pictures, best styles, etc?

I'm interested in everything - fondant, gumpaste, figures, etc.

AND, if you could only have one specialty tool, and by that I mean something other than what you can purchase at Michael's and Jo Anns, what would it be? What tool just makes your cakes so much better or is the most fun to work with?

I love Martha Stewart's book "Wedding Cakes". It has huge pages of cakes and a lot of pictures too. It also has the instructions. Here's the link!

I have his book and I like it. I also like Alan Dunn's and Debbi Brown's books. If your on a budget I wouldn't recommend buying Scott's DVD's though as they are quite pricey.
I do hear however that Nicholas Lodge has some good DVD's out and are way cheaper. I also have Sugarflowers dvd which is great also, she shows you how to make the cake in her avatar in that one.

Oh my goodness, I made a very similar thread but didn't see yours first!

Maybe we'll get some different responses this way!

Do I have to pick just one? Any of the Sharon Zambito DVDs would be my choice. Love Her!!!
