Hello Everyone! I thought I would share one of my favorite cake decorating books with you! This is simply the best book out there for novice and expert cake decorators! The Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating is a comprehensive how-to book about all of the most popular cake decorating techniques, including piped frosting, fondant, and hand modeled figures. For each technique, there is an overview of the tools and materials used and complete instructions with photos!

Even in the back of the book, there is a gallery of decorated cakes thats great to flip through for ideas!
