The book that they are giving away as a prize for the Mother's day contest, the Whimsical Bakehouse, looks really great. I saw it one day at Barnes and Noble, it had great ideas on how to mix colors, do choloate work, lots of really great ideas for kids cakes, and recipes (I've heard several folks on here rave about). I'm kicking myself however because I didn't buy it that day, someone must of bought it quickly because they haven't had a copy since. Guess I'll just have to enter the contest or order my own icon_smile.gif

Lindy Smith's books are great. You'll see the covers and think they may be difficult but once you see the directions you think...I can do this!

The last book I bought was one of Lindy Smith. She is just great. I am really a book freak, and buy several books a year. If you find out what you are interested to learn, and then find a book of that. Most of my books are British english.

DedeWilson has good cake decorating books too. I have a lot of Wilton cake decorating magazines as well! I love those the most b/c they give you all the details/instructions for each cake in the book.

You can check the following websites for The Whimsical Bakehouse:

www.barnesandnoble.com
www.amazon.com
www.ebay.com

Or you could type in the name of this book in a search engine and I'm sure several results will come up.
