New Zealand Cake decorators guild
The New Zealand Cake Decorators Guild was formed in 1986 and is the parent body for 39 Cake Decorating Guilds and Clubs throughout New Zealand. Membership stands at nearly 800 and includes those for whom cake decorating is their profession, teachers and hobbyists. Their aims are to promote the art of cake decorating at a professional level, and as a rewarding and satisfying hobby.
I am proud to be a member of the NZCDG. I thoroughly enjoy my monthly meetings, which I have been attending for the past 10 years. The wonderful members of my club meet the first Tuesday of every month. I couldn't hope for a more supportive and friendly bunch of ladies to share my craft with.
If you haven't attended a meeting before. PLEASE DO!. You won't regret it.
Details of the NZCDG and the nationwide list of branches can be found at
Members that join receive a quarterly magazine posted out Jan/April/July & Oct each year.
