Funny, I was thinking of starting this exact thread.

 

Alan Dunn books are beautiful and have good instructions-Ultimate Collection of Cake Decorating has a multitude of different flowers.

 

Maisie Parrish does fabulous fun figures and cakes.  I have all her books.

 

Debbie Brown has some good books and her instructions are easy to follow.

 

There are so many and my library is growing and growing.  My latest addition is Animation in Sugar by Carlos Lischetti.  Another very appealing book.

 

I suggest you go on to Amazon and put in cake decorating and then read some reviews for books that you like the covers of.  Have fun.  Oh and you don't have to stick to the cake decorating books.  Polymer Clay and plasticine books can be a really good source as well.

Thanks for the tip! I didn't think of that! :-)

AThe art of royal icing by Eddie spence is the best cake book I own. It's a tad pricy(you can find it for around $50 on Amazon or eBay) compared to most but there is sooo much more info packed in it! Worth every penny!
