Established in 1981 by sugarcrafters for cake decorating enthusiasts everywhere

    The Guild aims to:

    • Promote and stimulate interest in sugarcraft
    • Share knowledge
    • Develop talent
    • Improve standards


    The British Sugarcraft Guild was inaugurated officially on 17th March 1981 with the first meeting of the steering committee. Their backgrounds varied but these enthusiastic cake decorators were united firmly by their love of the art of sugarcraft.

    With a swan and its reflection as a logo a Newsletter for new members and its motto ‘My Craft is my Art’ the British Sugarcraft Guild was born.

    Activities and Events

    We organise activities such as demonstration days, workshops, residential skills schools and our own exhibitions as well as trips to other exhibitions and shows. We also have stands at many commercial cake shows where we provide demonstrations and hands on workshops. We also provide other services.
