WTSA Calendar

We are a group of women and men who meet when our schedules allow us for the purpose of sharing the Sugar Arts through talent, instruction, friendships and fun!

We offer hands on workshops at our meetings, as well as sharing our experience with handling clients, using tools of the trade, technique instruction, and various demonstrations for our members.  With our varied and highly experienced members, you can feel free to ask questions and learn more about the wonderful world of Cake Decorating and the Sugar Arts. We love questions! 

Some of our artists are members of the International Cake Exploration Societe
(ICES)  What is ICES you ask? Follow this link to find out more and join today!

Our members include shop owners, beginners in cake decorating and the Sugar Arts, Up and Coming Sugar Artists, and many who are teachers, former teachers, or family cake artists! 

All levels of Sugar Artists are welcome!
