Debi is excited to have been elected to the position of state rep for the CO/WY Chapter of ICES. She began exploring her growing interest in cake decorating by taking the Wilton courses. Debi's fabulous instructor informed her of the upcoming Sweet Times In The Rockies Cake Show. She was immediately hooked! She entered the following year and soon after, she joined ICES. Two years later, she co-chaired the annual show. Last summer Debi became ICES state rep. She looks forward to serving with the other great board members and growing our chapter with hard work and fun activities.

CO/WY ICES began as the Mile High Cake Club in the mid-1960s and became a chapter of International Cake Exploration Societe in 1977. Our Colorado chapter meets on a quarterly basis. We have "Days of Sharing" three or four times a year. At these events the members meet other decorators, see demonstrations, participate in cake contests and do other hands-on sugar confection activities.
Our sugar art show, Sweet Times in the Rockies (STITR), is held annually in conjunction with the Colorado Garden Foundation's Spring Garden and Home Show at the Colorado Convention Center.
A little about our international organization...
The International Cake Exploration Societe (ICES) was founded in 1976. It is now the largest cake decorating and sugar artists club in the world with approximately 1,600 members. There is an annual convention to display beautiful sugar art. A variety of demonstrations on techniques and methods, both innovative and tried-and-true at beginner through advanced levels are offered. The convention has the very latest in cake decorating products, tools, and supplies from international vendors. There is an opportunity to meet and talk with vendors, professional sugar artists, and authors of books about the confectionery arts.
We are always looking for new members who share our passion for cake decorating and sugar art. Our "Days of Sharing" are open to anyone, member of ICES or not.
