I know there was a thread on this some time ago but I can't seem to find it. If you have a good book could you post a note on the name and why you like it?
what type of book are you looking for?
Decorating? if yes, geared towards what type? buttercream, fondant, piping, gumpaste details?
Wedding cakes? party or all celebration cakes?
Or are you looking for recipe books? Scratch recipes? or modified box mixes?
Probably more like the recipe type. If I remember correctly the Cake Bible was a good one to have. Does my memory serve me correct? I usually use box mixes but would like to start baking from scratch.
Yes, the Cake Bible and Rose's Heavenly Cakes are both very good. I like the first Whimsical Bakehouse book, and I recently made an excellent chocolate malted cake from the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. I also like All Cakes Considered, which is cake recipes compiled from NPR's All Things Considered.
I have an extreme weakness for cookbooks...2 bookshelves full of JUST cookbooks, two dozen more on my Kindle and there are still many more I want to get.
