PME Diploma Course - Fondant/Sugarpaste - 4 Day Intensive (25 hours)
|Skill Level:||All Levels|
The PME Sugarpaste Skills Diploma is an Internationally recognised Certificate course packed full of everything you need to know about working with sugarpaste to professionally cover cakes and make cake decorations.
If you are self taught or fairly new to cake decorating this 4 day intensive course is an ideal way to get to grips with cake covering skills and working with sugarpaste. This course is FAST PACED! If you are completely new to cake decorating, it may help if you have some experience using sugarpaste before you attend. Our one day beginner level workshops 'Introduction to Sponge Cake Covering & Character Modelling Skills' or 'The Wilton Method - Course 3 - Gum Paste & Fondant' will teach you the basics, although this is not a requirement.
Working on three main projects you will learn and practice many basic techniques such as:
- Coating fruit cakes, sponge cakes & dummies, Crimping & Embossing
- Fabric Effects, Swags, Drapes, Frills & Flounces
- Ribbons, Bows, Sugar Embroidery, Pastillage,
- Modelling Fun Figures, Simple sculpted Novelty Cake
- Texturing, Fabric Flowers & Leaves, Inlay & Applique
- Stacked Cake Design & Handling
- Designing Celebration Cakes & Colour Balance
- Basic Business Guidelines, copyright & licence
You will have free use of all our equipment, such as turntable, rolling pin etc. You will also receive a NEW complimentary Course Kit (worth approx. £90) containing a workbook and all the other equipment you require to complete the course. We do ask that you supply your own materials such as marzipan, sugarpaste, boxes, boards etc. A list is emailed to you once you have made your booking, as an estimate these items will total about £45. In addition you will need a particular size fruit cake, two sponge cakes and a quantity of buttercream, recipes will be provided. If you prefer and for your convenience, you can 'pre-order' from our 'on-site' shop and receive 10% off your purchases, everything is then placed into our classroom ready for your first lesson. For all our classes, we recommend that you bring a notebook, pen and a camera to your lessons, you will also need to bring your lunch each day as food is not provided.
