Many people in our industry publish books, hard bound, paper back, ebooks and magazines. Want to know a secret: I don’t buy any nor do I subscribe to wedding magazines anymore (shhhh, don’t tell them or they will stop publishing my work!).
For 2012, my only recommendation so far is Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas. I’ve enjoyed her work for quite some time. I dabbled in a candy bar scenario once for a wedding, then I saw one of her setups somewhere and thought, WOW. For any bride, baker or party planner of any type of party, you must take a look at this book. I love it for two main reasons. First – recipes! I love trying out new recipes. Second, the set ups. You just can’t argue with the beauty of an Amy Atlas dessert display.
