PEOPLE with a sweet tooth looking to take their cake artistry to the next level are being invited to join the state’s leading authority on cake decorating and sugar craft in WA.

Cake Decorators’ Association of WA (CDAWA) Swan Districts Branch president Sarah Paul said shows like Masterchef and The Great Australian Bake Off had encouraged more people to get excited about baking and decorating at home.

“These shows prove that with a bit of practise and creativity it’s possible to make amazing cakes and that there are many people out there with similar interests,” she said.

“Our branch has more than 30 members of all ages and ability with members who have been cake decorating for over 30 years and others have just started.

“The CDAWA is a great place to share ideas, gain skills and meet other cake decorating enthusiasts.”

Cake Decorators’ Association of WA State President Shirley O’Reilly said the group started in 1979 and now has 13 branches located across metropolitan and regional WA.

“It’s an exciting time for CDAWA and we are here to support anyone at any level on their cake decorating journey,” she said.

“It’s all about creating, learning and sharing, and there is always plenty of cake to be had.”

The Swan Districts branch meets on the first Saturday of each month at the Swan Districts Senior Citizen’s Centre in Midland.

Annual membership is $45 and gives members access to attend exclusive workshops, demonstrations as well as newsletters, tutorials, tips and techniques on cake artistry.

This year members can attend the Australian National Cake Decorators’ Association’s three-day seminar in Scarborough in August to see demonstrations from world-renowned cake artists as well as participate in the National Sugar Craft Competition.
