The Queensland Cake Decorators Association (QCDA) is a ‘not for profit organisation’ that has been operating for over 34 years, in affiliation with the Australian Cake Decorating Association, with members throughout Australia and is Australia’s longest standing cake decorating association. We promote and share cake decorating and sugar art knowledge to assist this wonderful art to continue and grow.

Every year the QCDA has a cake competition where Novices and Children right through to Masters compete. This also provides a wonderful display for the public and showcases what can be achieved in cake and sugar. Last year the Expo attracted over approx 2000 guests, members and interested members of the public. The Expo aims to provide a platform for competition, to continually raise cake decorating standards by teaching, while promoting interest for fellow and prospective decorators and the public.

We have demonstrations, workshops and branch displays to facilitate learning and interest. We are pleased to welcome new members and are finding that many young and older, enthusiastic prospective decorators attend our Expos, looking to learn exciting, innovative and new methods to decorate cakes and to produce sugar art. With the excitement of hosting well known, international, interstate and local special guest demonstrators, everyone eagerly awaits this special event. This also provides a perfect place for related businesses to showcase products with vast numbers of the right and excited customer base attending in one place.

Again, this year the QCDA is presenting the ‘Qld Cake Expo’  and we have put in place some, changes to ensure that this Expo will be the best ever. This year we presented the Expo Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of August 2019  At Logan Entertainment Centre in Queensland, located between Brisbane and the beautiful Gold Coast.
