PME Diploma Courses
Inspired Creations are unique in that we are the ONLY specialist international school of sugarcraft who are linked to an 'on site' retail shop. Which means that as a school, our priority and focus is providing professional quality courses taught by experienced, qualified senior tutors approved by Knightsbridge PME.
We are proud to be listed on the PME Wall of Honour having received their 'PME Professional Diploma Award of Excellence for UK and Ireland 2014' and their awards for the 'Highest Number of PME Diploma Certificates Achieved by Students in UK and Ireland for 2017 and 2018' and 'Highest Number of PME Professional Masters Certificates Achieved by Students in UK and Ireland for 2016, 2017 and 2018'. This is a testament to the quality and popularity of our courses.
These internationally recognised PME Professional Diploma and Masters Certificate qualifications are highly sought-after within the cake making industry. They are suitable for all skill levels and are open to the hobbyist as well as those who plan to or are already running a cake decorating business. They are of particular interest to those who want to produce decorated cakes to a professional standard and advance their skills to help them stand out from many 'self taught' cake decorators.
There are three PME Professional Diploma Courses to complete, each specialising in a particular area of sugarcraft. You will be awarded a Diploma Certificate upon full attendance and successful completion of the skills outlined in each Diploma course.
Once you have achieved all three Diplomas, you will be awarded the PME Masters Certificate.
Our courses are taught in English, are intensive and fast paced. To get the most out of them, if you are a complete beginner, you may find it useful to gain some basic cake decorating skills, perhaps by attending one or more of our Beginner Certificate Classes / Wilton Method® Courses before you take the Diploma courses or at least consider attending the PME Sugarpaste Diploma first. As our courses are taught over consequtive days there is NO homework.

Our comfortable classroom based in Surrey seats up to a maximum of 8 students and is accessible worldwide. We are only 25 minutes from Gatwick Airport by train/car. We are close to the M25 (Jct 6) and there are 45 minute fast transport links via East Croydon to London Victoria & London Bridge Stations (ideal if flying into Heathrow Airport), Accommodation is available at our venue and nearby.
Inspired Creations will provide FREE use of all the equipment needed to complete each diploma so you will not incur huge additional expenses. Each student also receives a complimentary course kit, there is a different one for each diploma. The kit contains the majority of the equipment required to complete each course (the contents can be seen in the images above). If you have travelled a distance and are staying in 'away from home' accommodation please consider organising an additional suitcase allowance as there will be a lot for you to carry 'back home' especially if you are attending our 12 Day course. The combined weight of all 3 kits is 4.5kg (each individual kit weighs 1.5kg). The dimensions of each boxed kit differs slightly but as a guide the largest box size is 30cm wide, 41cm long and 12cm deep. The projects you create can be taken with you but will be best as hand luggage, it is likely that you will want to photograph your creations and only take home your favourite pieces.
With the exception of our 12 Day 'all inclusive' course, we ask that you supply your own materials, we send you a list once you have made your booking but you can ask for a copy before you book so see what you will need to prepare and source.
Items for Sugarcraft Centre, our 'on site' shop offer a 'pre-order & delivered direct to the classroom service' with a 10% discount on these purchases and any others made whilst attending your course. For your convenience, if you are travelling a distance or are short of time Inspired Creations are able to bake /supply sponge and fruit cakes. We recommend that you bring reading glasses, a notebook, pen and a camera / video camera to each lesson, you will also need to bring your lunch each day as food is not provided.
A full summary of the skills taught in each PME Diploma course together with our dates currently scheduled for 2019 are listed below. Please feel free contact us if you have any questions or need help deciding which course(s) to book.
