They are also posting some fantastic artist spotlights, with a special focus on Australian artists''.
"I'm very proud to be a supporter of ACADA. We have many diffeent cake decorating groups so why have I chosen ACADA and why is it different?
I believe this is the first group within Austrlaia that is forward thinking. It believes in staying relevant with the newest techniques, trends, skills and ideas whilst also having the knowledge skills base and training of the traditional styles. Its the best of both worlds and non-profit so any money raised goes back into the cake decorating industry to teach and help members grow.
I'm excited that ACADA will truly be part of the greater cake world bringing the best of decorating globally to Australia. Its appealing to decorators young and not so young. The show and competition are truly innovative, fresh and inspiring. I'm really excited to be a member of this wonderful association"
