I'm just finishing up my Wilton classes but want to go on learning. Could anyone recommend some DVD's that are worth purchasing?
I keep watch and have seen the tutorials here and love them but looking for some good DVD's that are easy to learn from. I'm going to purchase Edna's Stargazer Lily DVD.
Thanks

I'm also new to decorating. Took some Wilton classes which were ok for a starting point but want to learn more. I'm trying to decide whether to get buttercream/fondant DVDs by Sharon Zambito or Susan Carberry. icon_rolleyes.gif

I've got Sharon Zambito's they are wonderful, I saw a difference in my cakes immediatly, I still put them in while I'm working. But it will still come down to practice,practice and more practice. I'm hoping to buy some of Nick Lodges and Scott Woolley DVD's or maybe I'll get my DH to get them for me for Christmas.

Sharon's are more along the lines of general instruction (for example a fondant video, a buttercream video, both how-to). Susan Carberry has very specific cake videos (how to do a this kind or that kind of cake) out through Yummy Arts.

Thanks for asking Rusti!

Every Christmas my husband is stumped on stocking stuffers. What a great idea to add to my list!

I am new to cake decorating as well, in fact I am still in Course 3 of Wilton.
I feel like I can't absorb enough - fast enough! I just bought Jennifer Dontz 'Fun with Fondant and Frills" and loved it!

Any dvds by Sharon Zambito, Nick Lodge and Jennifer Dontz. Edna and Marcela Sanchez's sugar flowers dvds are also amazing. I just ordered Scott Woolley's Sugar Orchids Dvd as well!

The tutorial thread is in my signature, it is called Rylan's tutorials, because he found all of them, and put them together on here.

I would definately recommend Sharon Zambitos vidoes. Sugaredproductions.com She is very detailed. She has a buttercream, fondant, topsy turvy, stacking and idea video. Have them all. Love them all.
