"Being a part of ACDN has been a true highlight for me over the last few years. I have made many lifelong friends, had the privilege of working on such cake projects along with seeing behind the scenes of the cake industry."
ACDN is so professionally run and I get so much fulfillment out of interacting and having input into any further activities and opportunities that are coming up. My husband says the annual membership fee is the best money we spend all year due to the amount of enjoyment I get out my membership.
I can honestly say I love ACDN and I have well and truly found my 'cake squad'!
"I love being part of the Australian Cake Decorating Network."
"When I joined the Australian Cake Decorating Network I didn’t know what to expect.
Would I get anything out of it??
Would I learn anything??
Would I make any connections in the cake world??
Well a giant YES is the answer."
I have participated in many ACDN events. There have been classes, special projects like the wedding chapel at the Cake Bake and Sweet Show, Cake Camp, Cake Crawls, and even a Cake Crawl in New York, yes New York.
Being able to take advantage of the many member discounts is also appreciated. Along the way I have made great friends, without whom, I am sure, my cake decorating would not have progressed as it has.
So a big THANK YOU to Liz Wright and the ACDN team for all the opportunities afforded to me as a member.
