I am looking to try my hand at cake decorating, I need a good book that teaches the basics.
Wilton is the best way to go-years of experience.
there are a lot of books that are available, but try this site, it should be helpful! Good luck!
Wilton has a national teaching class for cake decorating. There is a beginner, intermediate and advance class. Use their book for the beginner, you can't go wrong. They are available at WalMart and Michael's Arts and Crafts.
My mum used to decorate wedding cakes and she taught herself from a book from Marks & Spencer's. It's really good, nice and simple instructions. Or another place to try is women's magazines, they usually have good simple ideas that are excellent for beginners.
Hope that helps xxx
This is the one I have. Hope this helps. Cheers,
go to any walmart or arts and crafts store and buy the wiltons cake decorating yearbook. i do cake decorating and i still learn alot from the book. go online to www.wilton.com and they have decorating tecniques.
