About us

The New Zealand Cake Decorators Guild was formed in 1986 and is the parent body for 41 Cake Decorating Guilds and Clubs throughout New Zealand. Our current membership stands at 893 and includes those for whom cake decorating is their profession, teachers and hobbyists. Our aims are to promote the art of cake decorating at a professional level, and as a rewarding and satisfying hobby.

Our members are very enthusiastic about their art form and this organisation, borne out by the fact that 25-35% of total membership attends our Annual Conference weekend, held alternately in the South and North Islands. The 2021 Conference will be held in Taupo.

The conference is a time for sharing knowledge and learning new skills, with the assistance of demonstrators from New Zealand and overseas, and for seeing the products on offer at the Trade Stands.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in cake decorating, through their local branch, or Lone membership is available to those not living within 50 kms of a club. Traders and companies involved in the Industry are able to join directly as Affiliate Members.
