Welcome to Ohio ICES…..

Ohio ICES is a certified chapter of the International Cake
Exploration Societé and we’re proud to say that we are
consistently among the top ten largest chapters/affiliated
member groups of the ICES organization, worldwide.
Among our purposes as members of ICES are the sharing,
promotion, perpetuation and practice of cake decoration
and sugar art.

Our members are bakers, confectioners, pastry chefs, and
cake stylists, as well as enthusiasts who practice sugar
artistry for their own enjoyment and those who simply
appreciate the sweet works of OTHER  sugar artists.

Members of Ohio ICES practice a wide variety of
techniques and bring different skill levels to the table…….
But, whatever we do and however we do it, we’d like to
share all of it with YOU…!!!

Ohio ICES Days of Sharing

When ICES groups meet to learn, teach and have some
fun, we often call that meeting a Day of Sharing. Currently,
the Ohio Chapter of ICES holds two official Days of
Sharing each year, centrally located in or around the state
capital of Columbus. Traditionally, these meetings are
held on the last Sunday of September and the last Sunday
of April.

An Ohio ICES Day of Sharing features a full schedule of
activities, including demonstrations, vendors, ideas,
information and a relaxing luncheon, where attendees can
network and make new friendships.
