Good professional gateau books?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I'm an intermediate level baker/cake decorator and am wondering if anyone might have a suggestion for a good professional French pastry/cake book with ample color photos. I know, it seems a lot to ask. I'm currenly considering The French Professional Pastry Series, I think it's volume 4: Decorations, Borders, Letters, Marzipan and Modern Desserts, copyright 1998. I can't thus far find any info on the number and quality of photos. Does anyone own this title, or is familiar with it? Or know of any other titles that have a lot of good supporting photos and covers whole finished French decorated cakes rather than plated individual desserts?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have the entire series and it is excellent. There are alot of photos in these books and the instruction is excellent. There are also drawings to illustrate how each component should be layered for a finished product. All in all--these books are definitely worth the money. I probably own over 2000 cookbooks and the French Professional Pastry Series are my absolute favourites. I considered purchasing a second set just for work.
