Are you self-taught so far? Why books? Ever tried dvd's? Try Alan Dunn, Nickolas Lodge or Scott Clark Woolley

YouTube has some great tutorials and I agree with what Lucyem said. Craftsy has some wonderful cake decorating classes.

sugarteachers.blogspot.com is great. They have many tutorials. I have a book called Sugarcraft Flowers by Claire Webb. I absolutely love it. My sister gave it to me for a gift. I think she found it on line from Walmart or somewhere like that. Last, but not least, youtube has instructions for just about anything.

Cutter Class Flowers for Australian Cake Decorating by Gail Dorter is a great book for flowers.  It is quite old (first published in 1987) and hence the reference to Australian cake decorators as I think Americans were mainly into buttercream and piped flowers during that era.
