I'm looking for a good, high end book on artistic cupcake decorating. A few killer recipes in it would be a lovely bonus. IDEAS?

I have the "Hello, Cupcake" and "what's new, cupcake" books. While I don't use many actual designs of theirs, I do get a lot of inspiration from them.

Planet Cake is releasing a cupcake book soon. I found that the Book Depository US is offering a really good pre-order price on it - 50% off now, I think. Their first book was really nice. Good, solid cake recipes.
They are a designer cakeshop in Sydney, Australia and I had the great fortune of having my wedding cake made by them. It tasted great and looked fantastic. They also made cakes for celebrities like Nicole Kidman, etc.

I also love all the books by Peggy Porschen. Very classy creations that look manageable to make. If anything, they're a feast for the eyes. Peggy Porschen has an amazing eye for colour. I could just look at her books all day long. You'll get raves just leaving her books on the coffee table.
She doesn't do just cupcakes but the colour palettes and ideas can easily be translated.
