Or, book your own class for 5/6 people. Let us know what topics you'd like to cover and we'll organise a date for you - just contact us if you're interested!

2. PME Professional Diplomas

There are three PME Professional Diploma modules which count towards your Masters Certificate: Sugarpaste, Sugar Flowers and Royal Icing & Piping. Each module is a completely separate course and it is not essential to complete all three modules as PME Professional Diplomas will be awarded on completion of each module. The Masters Certificate will be awarded on completion of all three modules. Please remember that the PME Diplomas represent a considerable commitment due to the length of course, associated homework requirements and materials list, so read the notes and Terms and Conditions below thoroughly.
