Just got back from the International Cake Exploration Societe (I.C.E.S.) convention. So many amazing sugar artisits were there.
I could drop names, like Kerry Vincent, Bronwyn Weber, Nicholas Lodge, Zane Beg, Earlene Moore, Norm Davis, Margaret Ford, Laura Ragano, Rebecca Sutterby, and Autumn Carpenter, but they would be just the start of a very long list of extremley talented sugar artists that attended.
Every year we have 4 days filled with not only cake information, but everthing you could imagine in the world of “Sugar Art”. Some of the demostrations and classes available were, Air Brushing, Chocolate, Edible Gems, Draping and Stringwork, Edible Photo Printing, Pulled Sugar, Gelatin, Cookies, Fondant, Gumpaste and on and on….
If you wanted to see some breath taking sugar art the “Cake Gallery” was the place to be. I understand there were over 700 displays.
I did have a display which took hours
to create and was so much fun.
“It’s a Sweet Life” was a world I created where candy apples and orange slices grew right on trees. A root beer falls empties into a barrel of ice cream, strawberrires grow already dipped in chocolate, and a chocolate rock wall is ready to climb.
