Hi everyone,

I've been looking at a few DVDs as suggested on this website. I'm also looking for more books and came across Debbie Brown's. I remember seeing them in the book store several months ago and thinking her idea of simple and my idea of simple are not one in the same! I started reading online reviews and many of them said she really does a good job breaking down the steps in an effort to make all of the cakes doable. Before I drop more money, I thought I'd ask for feedback here.

Thanks (again!)

i have 2 of her books (50 Easy Party Cakes & Enchanted Cakes)...but unfortuantely I havent tried any of her designs yet.

even though i am not an expert in cake decorating, the steps seem relatively easy to follow.

if i go to the amazon website, you can actually scroll through these 2 books and see the instructions before buying

I have almost all her books and I love each one. She gets down and breaks it into easy understandable steps and you can see what she's doing too. Good pics and explanations.
I highly recommend them.

debbie brown is really my favorite, because she's so whimsical. several of my cakes have incorporated things that i've interpreted from her the next month or so, i'll be doing 2 of her designs...the wizard owl from the cover of "magical cakes", and the boxers from the " naughty cakes" book. i also have the "extra naughty cakes" book, along with "enchanted cakes" and "cartoon cakes". i love them all!

I have her naughty cake book (I swear, I bought it because of the figure making one seems to believe that, though) and I did make the car with the hineys (Only I made a T-Bird, not a VW). It is actually in my photos (without the hineys. I wasn't sure if I could put that in or not, so I took a pic before I added the hineys). I found the book very easy to follow. And her directions for making figures out of fondant (people) is great. I would recomend her any time. HTH
