PME Five Star Sugar Artist Programme

We are pleased to present the revolutionary new and recognition programme in the sugar art industry, designed for those cake decorators looking for the ultimate educational challenge. To develop, refine and enhance existing skills where creativity and design are the ultimate goals.

The PME Five Star Sugar Artist Programme is a competition level course only for students who have attained a PME Professional Diploma Masters Certification. The five stars are the five awards you can achieve. Each star represents a different sugar artist skill that is truly a sign of a Five Star Sugar Artist. From Royal Icing to Sugar Flowers, students will be tested like never before in the industry. When you receive your first star, you will receive a Medal that has been designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom by the designers appointed by Her Majesty the Queen of England. Every time you achieve another star, you can wear the extra star on your medal. When you earn your fifth star, you will receive the Final Certificate and be able to call yourself a "PME Five Star Sugar Artist", the most honourable award. You will be able to wear your medal with five stars very proudly on your chef's jacket.

​The Five Star experience is a road of development and discovery that is full of surprises. The journey of a true Cake Artist is never easy, but the rewards can be truly unique, especially when you have made everything yourself from start to finish and can stand back and say 'I Made that'.
