Hopefully there aren't a million of these, and hopefully I posted in the correct forum.

But I'm looking to update my collection of cake decorating books, and I don't mean like cookbooks, I mean cake decorating books. Like the beautiful books of established cake decorators like Peggy Porschen, Eric Lanlard, and Toba Garret ...people like that.

I was wondering if any of you cake decorators, whether you do it for fun or professionally, have any favorites that you'd suggest I buy. I only have three books right now:

Eric Lanard's Glamour Cakes
Peggy Porschen's Simply Spectacular Cakes
Peggy Porschen's Beautiful Cakes

I'd love to hear suggestions and anything else you'd like to suggest. Hopefully no one is like: icon_confused.gif Not this topic again. And if I did miss a topic on this, feel free to link me and i'll delete this. Thank you so much in advance!

I'm sort of new to all this but a book that helped me get started was
It covers alot of the basics so I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for or not. Good luck in building your library though!

Thanks to you both! I'll definitely check them both out.

kakeladi: Nic Lodge is right up my alley! Definitely just what I was looking for. I'd love to hear your other suggestions if you remember them! Do you have a specific Nic Lodge book you like the best?

icednice: I'll check that one out too! Thank for your suggestion!
