I love. love, love books.
And for part of my Mother's Day gift, my hubby gave me a $200.00 gift certificate to amazon.ca
What's your favorite cake books?? or cookie? or baking?
I have 1000+ cookbooks,but I haven't bought any in the last year- and i know there must a few great books out there now...
I love the following authors: Lindy Smith, Colette Peters, Elisa Strauss. They all have great books. I have also heard that Debbie Brown has a really good one out.
I also love Martha Stewarts Wedding Cakes.
Have fun spending your gift certificate!
I love Cakelove by warren brown if you're looking for some scratch recipes, he breaks it all down!!
I love my Confetti Cake books. I'm not a huge fan of the Debbie Brown books. While she has some cute ideas, I need a bit more detail in the step by step. Martha Stewart's Wedding Cake book (and cupcake book) are great. Anything by Julia Child is great too.
I love Martha's cookie & wedding cake book. The Cake Bible is on my list of must-buys.
You can check for cake books at your local library. Check them out, give them a once over, see if there's anything you like. Then if you don't like it, you can choose another.
I love the Debbie Brown books, but they're very specific themes and mostly child (or child-at-heart) oriented. I have been able to create some spot on characters from them however.
I've recently bought the Planet Cake book and LOVE it!!! Check out their website www.planetcake.com.au
The instructions in the book are really clear with step-by-step photos. And their ideas are creatively awesome.
What a lovely gift from your hubby!!
If your looking for gumpaste instructions I'd look for books by Alan Dunn. I also have Scott Clark Woolley's book and think it's really good too. Check out Nicholas Lodge as well.
