Hello everyone,
I want to purchase a good cake decorating book for my SIS. She is getting better and better every day! Nevertheless, she was kind of wondering about how to make those beautiful purses, sushi dishes, etc. that she sees in this website. Can anybody recommed a good book with patterns, step by step? Her birthday is comming up and I want to surprise her. I have checked amazon, but I do not know which is worth. From my own experience... I have bought several cookbooks for my daily meals and got so disappointed when reading them because they were not what I expected. So that I ask for your help.
Thanks!!

Debbie Brown's books are great! They are more detailed then some of the other ones I have purchased from amazon.

Hi,

I purchased this book last year and I love it! I think the instructions are very easy to follow. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0316113077/?tag=cakecentral-20 The Confetti Cakes Cookbook: Spectacular Cookies, Cakes, and Cupcakes from New York City's Famed Bakery (Hardcover) by Elisa Strauss and Christi Matheson

If she is visual, I recommend the sugar shack videos. There is not a purse tutorial but to me her techniques are so solid they can be applid to any cake. My 3 favorites are perfecting the art of buttercream, flawless fondant and tipsy turvy. You can order them at www.sugaredproductions.com

please for give my typos. I'm sending this from my phoneicon_smile.gif
