Take a look at our News and Events page to see what exciting activities we have coming up…

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in sugarcraft and cake decorating, ranging from the complete novice to professionals in their field; everyone can benefit from the sharing and learning experience that BSG membership can bring.

We hold over 100 sugarcraft demonstrations and events each month at branches across the UK. Branch meetings offer the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people who are similarly passionate about cake decorating and sugarcraft.

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.

Our members receive the quarterly Sugarcraft magazine and can access member only social media sites for sharing cake photographs, exchanging ideas and viewing online demonstrations.
