I adore books. They are a passion and have provided countless hours of enjoyment and instruction over the years. On top of my boxes of fiction and non fiction favorites and thousands (yes!) of e books I also cart around at least 100 cake design and baking volumes. I prefer actual books rather than digital copies for my cookbooks and especially cake decorating reference manuals. Over the years I have ruined many books by propping them up while trying a certain recipe or design and many of my favorite texts have pages that stick together on my favorite sections. This is unfortunate but the books are very loved!
I highly recommend starting your own book collection dedicated to the passion of cake decorating because reading these books can teach you valuable skills and inspire you to greater heights of creativity. Choose books that have clear detailed instructions, vibrant photos, delicious recipes and above all books that speak to your particular passion or taste. I personally adore flowers on cakes so Sylvia Weinstock holds a special place in my heart. Her cakes are simply spellbinding. Discover your style and love and I'm sure you will find a book that addresses your needs.
