South Australia holds a State Seminar every year. In the National Seminar Year the State Seminar is a one day event, in the alternate year it is held over 2 days. Demonstrations are provided by all our branches as well as guest demonstrators from interstate.
CDASA hosts a State Cake Decorating Competition each year. It is held in a regional shopping center. Cakes are on display for 4 days, with the presentation of prizes on the final day. Many members enter their competition cakes into the Royal Adelaide Show as well.

Time is allocated at the regular branch meetings to discuss any sugar art problems and outside of meetings members ring and rely on each other for help. Meet fellow cake decorators at the meetings and open a new world of ideas and knowledge.myspace profile view counter
