MORE members to share a love of creativity and edible art would be the icing on the cake for the Ipswich Cake Decorators Association.

The group will host an open day to showcase its work and attract new members in March.

President Katie Young said about 10 people now attended each meeting of the Ipswich branch of the national association, with many other members hailing from outlying areas such as Laidley.

"We get guest demonstrators in, share ideas, and sometimes we have workshops," she said.

"It's for everyone - for hobbyists and people with an interest in learning the basics.

"A lot of ladies have done cake decorating for years, but we'd love to see new faces and welcome people who might be learning."

Ms Young said cake decorating was a great way to express creativity and have fun.

She said some cakes were baked and decorated, while other competition cakes were purely a shell - a deceptive layer of fondant laid over styrofoam or other long-lasting material.

Some of these "fake" cakes can last for months, and Ms Young has kept some of her competition cakes on display at home.

But it's not all about taking part in competitions.

People keen to pick up some tips on creating the ultimate birthday cake were also welcome, Ms Young said.

The open day will run from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, March 23, at the Central Church Hall, cnr Limestone and Gordon Sts, Ipswich.

Entry is by gold coin donation and there will be demonstrations, with cake decorating equipment and materials available for purchase.
