I've already ordered a couple of Debbie Brown books, and I'm waiting for them to arrive. However, I noticed another author by the name of Carol Deacon who seems to have written similar step-by-step books. I've also noticed that Carol Deacon's books are much more inexpensive than Debbie Brown's.

If you have seen or used books by both authors, what is your opinion? Whose books are better?

TIA!

I haven't seen Carol Deacon's books but I love my Debbie Brown one!

I have used both books and find them both great... but learned the hard way after spending tons of money buying them that all I had to do was check them out at my local library.

You will be pleasantly surprised at what you will find there and I still have several books checked out that I have had for several months now.

I just call the library on the phone and re check them out.

If you've had them that long, perhaps you should think about buying them. Someone else may be looking for them, too. If you can't afford to buy new, try used book stores, ebay, amazon. Just a thought.

carole deacon is great too. i think she does different cakes to debbie brown, in that debbies are more fondant based, with caroles are simple and quick bc, to fancier more time needed fondant cakes. good to look at and browse for pretty pics, id recommend. do try your library tho, and be careful if you buy, some of the books are updated old ones, with many of the same cakes.

Actually they allow me to re check them out only if no one else has requested them...but no worries it's all good!
