The International Cake Exploration Societé (ICES), an organization comprised of over 4500 sugar artists, cake decorators and vendors from all over the world. Our sugar art masterpieces can be as small as one exquisite gum paste rose or as large as the beautiful towering sugar sculptures you've seen on televised competitions. Whether you'd like to learn more about the sugar art craft, or if you've been teaching cake decorating for years, ICES has a place just for you.

The Virginia Chapter spreads SHARING and CARING of cake decorating through meetings, social events, cake shows and "Days of Sharing", throughout the year.

 Letter from the Rep.


 With love and warm thoughts in the air on these cold nights I just wanted to give you a few updates.  

  We are currently planning April 3rd for out DOS in Virginia Beach.  We are ironing out the details and will give you more information soon.


· webpage has just completed an overdue face-lift/restructure.  You should find it more convenient to navigate.  They are currently working on correcting outstanding issues with the ICES app for IPhone/Android.  I have it download on my phone and find it quite useful, hope you will take the time and download it as well.


  I have bought my ticket and ready to go to Midyear in Spokane Washington, this is the time to address and concerns or ideas for ICES.  Have put together an anonymous form on Google

  Please fill out this form for me to address.


  One last thing, the National Capital Area Cake Show will be held April 16rh-17, 2016.  Classes are online.  Please don’t wait to sign up for the classes you want to take.  You may not know this, but our teacher have to often fly out to our show and have hotel expenses.  If the teachers do not make their minimum number of students to offset the cost of travel, they will often cancel the class.  We are also planning a special event from Norman R. Davis.  More information will be available soon, please visit or our Facebook page to keep up with new information.  


   Hope I have covered everything and look forward to seeing you at the next DOS.
