How many of you ladies have subscribed to ACD?? Do you think it's worth it?? I have been considering subscribing and found a website that sells a year for $28.00, but to me it's still expensive for only 6 issues.

Do you think that the magazine is worth the money....or could I learn all the same things here??

I got it for years but now that I have found cake central, I see more than I could ever see in ACD. I put the money that I would have spent on ACD and Mailbox news and donated to cake central!

I find it much easier to search on the computer than go page by page in all those issues to find an article that I want.

I subscribed for this last year and I wasn't really impressed. Like Cakequeen50 says, I get more info off cc. I'm not renewing.

I love getting it. I also get Mailbox News. I have all the ACD that have been published. I have also collected Mailbox News clear back to the Late 50's. They are my prized collecton. I disovered Mailbox News when I was planning my parents 25th anniversary cake, and now I am making their 50th anniversary cake this month. Alot of the older ones are my favorites. I am a buttercream fan and that is mostly what was stressed. I love getting a magazine that highlights my hobby. I always think of how I can make a cake in buttercream. I like to get ideas from them and also love to learn new techniques.

I had it and let it expire. I get so much info from CC, but I find myself looking periodically through the year of back issues I had, so I'm thinking of re-subscribing. icon_smile.gif There are good recipes and how=to's.

I just received my first issue this month and I was disappointed, but, hey I'm willing to see thru my first year and go from there. Like other members I get more from CC.

I got a subscription for xmas and just got my first copy. The magazine is great but there wasn't a lot of cakes. The ones they did show they gave detailed instructions for them. I do think that cc has/will help me more than the magazine though!

I think ACD is an awesome publication....BUT, I think the money is better spent being donated to Cake Central...I don't know about most of you folk but I spend way more time on this site than I do thumbing through pages of ANY Magazine...Just seems like the money is better spent keeping CC up and running SMOOTHLY!! JMHO

Thanks for the replies everyone...I think I'll hold off...seeing how money is a little tight right now anyways. I can learn so much here it's not even funny....Great idea milissasmom..I may just donate that money to CC instead....when I have it to give again!! icon_smile.gif

I get it- and I mainly use it to cut from- I cut out pics of cakes to show potential clients, and also for my own inspiration. They don't stay as wwhoole magazines for me- they go into an album icon_smile.gif

It is OK, I don't think I will renew my subscription unless there is a special offer or something.
