There were cake artists from all over the country as well as cake artists from Canada, Australia, Brazil, England, Peru, Argentina, Mexico and other countries.
I recommend any cake artist (beginner or advanced) to join ICES (http://www.ices.org).
Below are two examples of cakes that were part of the demos.
Very talented people from all over the world had displays in the cake gallery. Next year's ICES Convention will be in Illinois. Hope to see you there!
