When looking for inspiration (not to copy, just to see the possibilities and marvel at others' talents!), where to you go?

PS - Thanks for the book suggestion thread...I have several of those mentioned, but will look up the others tonight!

I usually google what images I happen to feel like looking at that moment. Whether it be wedding cakes, birthday cakes etc. I also love to look at the galleries right here in CC. There are some very talented people here, and I love looking at everyone's creations. icon_lol.gif

For inspiration I look at wrought iron patterns on buildings and subscribe to home decorating magazines to look at fabric patterns on rugs, chairs, etc. There are some cool images there.

For baking and cooking (but not decorating), I love www.smittenkitchen.com. She has compiled some really great recipes and always has gorgeous photos to look at.

I do a lot of cookies, so I like to look at www.cookiecrazie.blogspot.com and sweetsugarbelle's flickr pages. Also cookieartisan and debbiedoescakes on flickr. Sweetopia has some really great tutorials, especially the Kopykake one.

I also love to look at the cookies here, not really for inspiration, just to be amazed by the incredible talent and creativity of many decorators here.

LOVE Cookie Crazie and she is always willing to help when someone has decorating issue. She posts the recipe she uses and tip and hints.

There is a group at Mixingbowl.com that is good and has a forum attached for questions.

I love browsing blogs for inspiration! There are so many talented decorators out there! Sorry, I am not sure how to post the link (cut+copy?) Here are some of my favs:

www.enjoycupcakes.com/blog
www.icingdesignsonline.blogspot.com-they just featured enjoy cupcakes!
www.love-a-cupcake.blogspot.com
www.holysweet.blogspot.com
www.poshpastries.blogspot.com
www.jessicakesblog.blogspot.com

also standards, but amazing, like:

www.cakejournal.com
www.bakerella.com

I have my own blog, www.swellcakes.blogspot.com, but can't find time to do any caking or updating with four kids and a full-time job across the state, many soccer games too. In my next life I will be able to cake : )
