I really hope that Cake Central publishes a monthly magazine. There are no monthly cake decorating magazines at the newstands. Most of the resources for cake inspiration or information are the bridal/wedding magazines. The only cake magazine that I see at the bookstores, is a British publication that comes out quarterly. What a delight it would be to receive in the mail or purchase monthly a magazine about my favorite hobby/passion!

Cake Central you have my support. I really think the magazine will be a success. If the magazine is anything like this awesome website it is going to be great!

I know Im so excited there is a chance for this magazine. I am always buying wedding magazines just to look at the cakes and I feel like everyone thinks I am crazy since Im not even engaged yet lol. Oh well. I really hope a cake central magazine happens. (:

i think the newsletter said they need 2000 to think about it - you would surely need a massive number to have proper distribution ie: in news agents, supermarkets etc.
and it will be a challenge or them to make a magazine worth paying for, when really everything you need is on this site. could work really well, but the cake magazines in the uk dont intrest me unless i want to make that speciic cake. so hopes are low for this one - which probably wouldnt come to the uk anyway!
not read the survey, so i might be missing lots of info.

Yeah it would be so hard for them to start up but it just seems like a great idea. Everytime I see an all cake magazine I always buy it. I like the fact that I have a hard copy of cake ideas, recipies, tips, etc. Just in case my internet is not working and I really want to know how to make something. Or if I go on a long trip and I need a magazine I love looking through the magazines to get inspiration so I can plan out in my head what my next cake will look like.

Awfully brave of them to start a magazine in this economy, as well as the general crappy state of the magazine industry. Hopefully they'll be able to drum up enough advertisers to make it worthwhile -- unfortunately it's the advertisers that keep a magazine going, not the subscribers. Just look at what happened to Domino magazine....

You should subscribe to american cake decorating and mailbox news
you get them about once a month or once every two months and they are very reasonable, $28 a year for american cake decorating, and $20 a year for mailbox news and they have tutorials and recipies in them and they are all cake.

I hope they have success with the magazine too I cannot wait.

I just hope that it won't be a clone of American Cake Decorating, which doesn't have any useful information for anyone over an intermediate skill level in it.
