The Ohio Chapter of the International Cake Exploration Societé is one of the larger chapters within the organization.
Ohio has one of the oldest organized memberships in ICES, with several Ohioans among the original charter group.
The first president of ICES was Ohio member Peg Seeger, a respected and admired sugar artist, teacher and competition judge.
Along with Peg Seeger, two other innovative icing artists and teachers from Ohio - Kay Ogden and Mary J. Howard - are in the ICES Hall of Fame.
Columbus, Ohio was the host city for the 1994 ICES Convention. Columbus continues to be our central meeting place for current chapter activities.
Our second go-round as ICES Convention host, came in 2018 in Cincinnati, OH.
It is our tradition to meet on the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in September. This routine is changed only with prior notice and only in the event that a holiday or other major circumstance conflicts with the traditional date - Or, when a special program or guest instructor’s appearance takes precedence over maintaining the traditional date.

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…!!!
We invite you to browse our site and experience the opportunities we make available to anyone who wishes to learn more about this exciting and creative art form.

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.
