Good question! I'm definately watching for new ideas too! I like to read Colette Peters, Alan Dunn, and Debbie Brown's books.

The best way to pick one is to go to the book store and just sit at a table with all of the ones that look interesting to you, and go through them to see which one has the most stuff that you're wanting to learn. You'd be surprised how many cake decorating books they have just at the regular bookstore.

I'd recommend the Nicholas Lodge series (three books, which can be bought from between $16 and $21 each from Amazon), called The International School of (the word that goes here gets blocked, I'm not sure why, but the title isn't hard to find, and he hasn't written anything else with a similar title). For my money, these have the largest number of techniques (all well-illustrated) in one place.
