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.

Happy summer everyone,

  I hope you are doing well  especially on these hot days.  Our annual ICES Convention is right around the corner August 4th thru the 7th in Mobile Alabama.   I am looking forward to my first convention and starting to get excited.  Hopefully you will be attending the convention.   If you are attending, please bring any new toys/tools you pick up to our September 25th meeting in Richmond and give a quick demo.  We do this at my local cake club, CASANOVA, and it is always fun and informative. 

  If you would like to demo at our Richmond meeting, or any DOS meeting, please let us know.   We also have Satin Ice Fondant and gumpaste if you need any to use for your demo and or hands on.   Have some left over from the National Capital Area Cake Show.  Also anyone who wishing to teach after our Days of Sharing let us know as soon as possible so we can get students to attend with enough notice.



If you are attending our NEXT DOS on July 10th in Fredricksburg please let us know in the following link.
