The ANCDA is the leading authority on cake decorating in Australia.

Our goal is to foster and improve the art of cake decorating by exchanging

ideas and techniques through a common bond of friendship.

The Australian National Cake Decorators' Assoc. Inc. (ANCDA) began on the 9th November 1981, with the foundation Members being the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.

They were joined by the Cake Decorators Assoc. of NSW in 1982 and the Northern Territory Cake Decorators in 1985.

Gaena Duncan from the Cake Decorators Association of WA was instrumental in the forming of the Association and went on to become the first President of the ANCDA.

Management of the ANCDA

The ANCDA is managed by a National Executive Committee who is made up of individuals from within one of the Member Assoc.

The National Executive holds the position for two years and the responsibility is passed on, on a rotational basis through Member Associations.

The role of the executive is to manage the day-to-day administration of the ANCDA, fundraising, running the National Competition at the National Seminar every two years, and providing support to its Members.

The ANCDA is governed by a Constitution & BY-Laws.

Being Part of the ANCDA


Becoming part of the ANCDA is easy.  All you need to do is contact the Association in your State, who can then put you in contact with a branch local to you.

Why join your local Association?

Being part of your State's Association allows you to join a group of like-minded people who are passionate about Cake Decorating & Sugar Craft.

You will have the opportunity to attend workshops and demonstrations, where you will get to learn new and exciting techniques.  Many of our Member Associations also produce their own magazine which is distributed to members.  These magazines contain useful tips and techniques, mini-tutorials, along with loads of pictures from individuals who have taken part in competitions or displays.
