I like Mailbox News and American Cake Decorating. They're a little pricey, for 6 issues a year, but I love getting them and I think they're worth it.

I think the two Moxey suggested are about all there are printed in the US. ACD is better than MBN, I think.

I like Wedding Cakes: A Design Source. It's printed in the UK and I get it at Barnes and Noble. It's not a monthly, and it's expensive, but I pour over each page and use them a lot when I have bridal consults. Martha Stewart wedding magazines usually have nice pictures of cakes in them, too.

Im with Moxey I love Mailbox News and American Cake Decorating both. Mailbox News has all styles of cakes , a lot of amatuer cake decorators and they publish a lot of cake photos as well. American Cake Decorating is more on the professional side I guess you would say , They feature a lot of the bigger name people in the cake world but some of the cakes they feature an amatuer could do as well . They have cake decorating websites and advertisements for supplies as well in both magazines, One or both you wont regret getting a mag.

I absolutely love Wedding Cakes A Design source. There is nothing traditional about all of them, so if you like doing tiered cakes you can use them for any event.

It is put out by Squires Kitchen in the UK, they actually have a few and my other favorite one is Contemporary Wedding cakes. You can get them at Barnes and Noble or Border (Waldenbooks) when they come out, they are issued every 3 or 4 months depending on which one, but they are ALL cake.

And there are even some by people here on CC shown in there!! I can look through and say I "know" that person icon_lol.gif
