On May 11, 2016, the International Cake Exploration Societé (ICES) announces that registration is open for their 41st annual convention, to be held in Mobile, Alabama from August 4th to August 7th, 2016.
ICES is a long-running organization dedicated to educating cake decorators and sugar artists with the mission to “preserve, advance and encourage exploration of the sugar arts.”
The annual convention is the highlight of the year for many ICES members, attracting sugar artists from all over the world, and features learning opportunities and cake and sugar showcases. The convention will offer learning opportunities for cake and sugar enthusiasts that will include both demonstrations and hands-on classes by experts and celebrities in the field.
The convention's Sugar Art Gallery welcomes displays from convention attendees and the general public. The gallery, a fan favorite, frequently showcases talent from around the world, including single tier and tower cakes, buttercream, fondant, pulled sugar and more. Pre-registered displays will be eligible for prize drawings. A portion of the proceeds from the Sugar Art Gallery's one-day pass sales will benefit the Wilmer Hall Children’s Home in Mobile.
This year, the gallery will also present a Gingerbread Talent Showcase featuring entries ranging from beginner-level to professionals. Live “construction crews” will also recreate some of Mobile's iconic landmarks using gingerbread.
Booths in the convention's popular Vendor Hall will debut various vendors' new decorating and sugar art products and tools; visitors can look forward to demonstrations, special offers and appearances by cake decorating celebrities.
