I know I've seen previous posts about different decorating books but am not coming up with anything in my searches.

I am looking for some inspiring cake decoaring books with creative and different designs, not wedding cakes, more party and kid cakes. I have been looking at some of Lindy Smith's books online. Anyone have any suggestions? Or if you can direct me to a post that has book reviews I would appreciate it. Thanks!

The Planet Cake Book is a good one. Confetti Cakes Cookbook and The Whimsical Bakehouse book is a good one too. I hope that helps. icon_smile.gif

Have you tried your library yet? Fortunately my library has several so I was able to read them first to see if they were worth buying.

Anything by Debbie Brown...I own 6 of hers and each has creative, non-wedding, fun designs.

I've made her yarn ball & cat and her Queen's throne cakes so far. Can't wait to do more!

I third Whimsical Bakehouse! Great book.

Also my grandmother just picked up both of the "Hello, Cupcake" books for me. I thought they were going to be a little too "Mom makes cute birthday cupcakes" if you know what I mean. But I actually really liked them. I dont like all the use of store bought cookies, twinkies and candy but you can easily substitute those for more hand crafted stuff and make them your own. Some really cute ideas in them.

OMG! I just realized that the "Whimsical bakery" is one town away from me. I have to stop by and check it out.
