I have Pretty Party Cakes and I like it a lot for inspiration. Haven't tried any of the recipes though.

The library is a great resource. If you are hesitant check to see if your local library has these books. I have checked out the enchanted cake book and I thought it was a pretty good book.

I have the enchanted cakes book and I love it, it's full of great ideas with easy to follow instructions...I don't like the taste of the madeira cake, but it's easy to work with and carve...The gnome home toadstool in mi photos is out of a similar book, and it went fairly well for a first attempt...good instructions

I have the Enchanted Cakes for Children by Debbie Brown and love it. I would recommend any of her books. The instructions and pictures are detailed and helpful.

Thank you, everyone. I have not been able to get my hands on the Enchanted book through the library or any of the bookstores, but it looked so good, and I do have another of Debbie Brown's book and have enjoyed it. Plus, I found it on Amazon for such a great price!

Thanks for the replies!

If you look for the books on Amazon.com or on Debbie Brown's website you can usually "look through" the book on the site.
