yes they are, but at very few places at this time. They were only introduced last summer.

Check with local cake classes they might be able to help you. I just found one near me but there is a waiting list. Good Luck.

take a look at the PME pages http://www.knightsbridgepmeschoolofcakedecorating.co.uk/80730/info.php?p=3

it doesn't list it, but you could email them for a list of US cake stores that hold these classes

I took that course in England, like 20yrs ago. OMG it's great. I encourage everyone to take it.

Have you checked with CakeCarousel, they are in Richardson and they are very friendly and I loved their basic class and hoped to build up to their PME courses.

PME classes are 3 courses that are divided into sections....royal icing...sugar paste flowers....fondant. After each course you get a certificate that says you finished that section of the course. You do all 3 levels and they give you a masters certificate. It is an advanced course...or use to be anyway. They are somewhat like wilton courses I guess.....but they are a lot more advanced. You need to know what you are doing to start with. Now that was 20yrs when I took the course, I don't really know what it's like today. Depending on your teacher, some also touch on the lambeth method also. Hope that helps. It's mostly detailed icing, crochet icing, extentions. How to do frills, crimping etc.

thatslifeca - that is very cool that you got to take the PME courses. I have to say though, there isn't any comparisons to PME and Wilton...PME is high end cake craft, while Wilton is the very basics! I wish there was a place near me that offered their classes, I would take them in a hearbeat.

OHH I know there is no comparisons, I was just saying that it is split up into courses like wilton is. That's why I described it as an advance course, you have to know what you are doing all ready. It isn't a course for beginners. icon_smile.gif

OK, I get it now! icon_redface.gif So each of 3 certifications are 4 classes? I still would take them in a heartbeat if they were offered anywhere close by.

Well it's split into 4 courses, fondant is 5 classes each about 5 and half hrs, royal icing is 5 classes also about 5 and half hrs, and sugar flowers that are split into sugar flowers 1 and 2, both sections split into 5 classes. I wish everyone can take the pme courses, they are great. I have been using these tech. for years. I hope that it's an art that never dissappears.
