In this post I’ll be showing you my final presentation pieces, which included a Technique Board (I themed mine on The Four Seasons) and a Celebration Cake (the celebration I received was 21st Birthday and I themed the cake on Shabby Chic Vintage).
My Presentation Board demonstrated the following techniques that I learned on the PME Diploma in Sugarpaste course:
Crimping, Twisted Rope, Rolled Rope, Cut Outs, Fabric Effect Flowers, Creative Plaques, Embossing, Basket Weave, Frills, Inlaid Plaque, Swags, Ribbons & Bows, Modelling, Doves and Textured Rolling Pins.

as well as Modelling and cut-outs.

Completing the course was also expensive. In addition to the £300+ fee for the course, and despite having a good range of basic cake decorating equipment, I estimate I spent a further £400 on equipment that was deemed “essential”. Most of it I will use in future projects, but some of the techniques we learnt were no longer fashionable and I am unlikely to use the techniques again any time soon. I would have hoped that there would have been equipment available to students to use within the classroom, given the cost of the course, but this was not the case.
I really enjoyed doing the PME Diploma Course in Sugarpaste and am really pleased with the skills I learnt. The course provides a very solid foundation in cake decorating and the core skills that you learn will enable you to produce a high standard of celebration cakes, whether that’s for pleasure or commercial use.
My two presentation pieces earned me a Bronze Award along with my Diploma.
