You might take a look at the Google product groups topic on it: How do I get a two-way sync to work between my google calendar & iCal? how do I get iCal events to sync on google cal? Looks like a lot of people have the same question.

I wasn't able to find anything from apple ical support.

This worked: "LOL! OK as usual as soon as I pipe up I figure out the answer to my question.

Try this.....

When you create an event in iCal, you need to select your Gmail Calendar (go to the Calendar option and in the drop down menu select your Gmail Address).

By default, when you enter an event in iCal, your default calendar will be selected.

So you just have to make sure you select your Google Calendar in the Calendar drop down menu and save the event with that Calendar selected.

Also, depending on your sync settings (iCal Preferences - Refresh Calendars - every 5 minutes etc.) you may have to wait a few minutes before you see the new event in Google Calendar.

I set my sync settings to every 1 minute, waited a minute, refreshed Google Calendar and the new event was in there."
