The Ultimate Educational Challenge
PME Five Star Sugar Artist Programme
We are pleased to present the revolutionary new and recognition programme in the sugar art industry which is designed for those cake decorators that are 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 5 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 are able to wear the extra star on your medal. When you achieve 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 5 stars very proudly on you chefs 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 amazing especially when you have made everything yourself from start to finish and can stand back and say 'I Made that'.

Five Star Sugar Artist Course - Royal Icing and Piping
Filigree icing is a very intricate and elegant cake decorating technique. In this 3-day workshop, you will learn how to control your pressure piping to create stunning panels with filigree work, overpiping, 3D butterfly and more! We will allow the piped pieces to dry and assembling those pieces into a three-dimensional design. We will pipe butterfly wings flat and assemble as a beautiful butterfly sitting on a branch. The techniques learned in this class can be applied to design your original pieces. There are many ways to incorporate filigree work into a cake once you understand how to pipe and how to ensure the pieces are strong built.
