Hi all, i've just finished the third and final PME here in the UK and can really recommend them. Ours were split into the 3 groups of sugarpaste (fondant), sugar flowers and royal icing with a certificate at the end of each and a masters certificate for completing all 3. Each section lasted 3 weeks with a class each week. It really was great and inspired me to start making cakes. What started out as something I'd always wanted to do has turned into a cake obsession lol. If you can get a course in the USA I would grab it! icon_biggrin.gif

Can you put a bug in their ear to do one of those sets of classes in or near Columbus Ohio? (we are with a days drive to 2/3 of the United States from here!~)

LOL I will try and tell them there some great ladies on Cake Central who would love to do your courses! I've only ever heard of the Wilton ones in the USA - what are they like? I was tempted at one point to travel over and do some but then the PME appeared. Its hard over here to get cake classes unless you want to do 2 years of bakery school full time. The only other option appeared to be night school but they are just so basic and only cover decorating one cake. PME is really good but I would say a beginner could start it because I was a total beginner. However I would say start with the sugarpaste (fondant) course first because that is the basics upwards. showing you how to bake and ice cakes and the different types of icing etc. Sugar flowers was hard!!!

DO NOT travel here to take the "regular" wilton classes, they are VERY basic. Now, if you were to come to the ICES convention and sign up for the classes that are offered there, that might be worth your while! (and you could hang out with cake buddies for the week too!) icon_biggrin.gif

i have taken the PME Royal Icing Piping class here in TX. Each course is 25hrs of class time. We meet 5 times for 5hrs each time. I would highly recommend you ask about the instructor, see samples of what is taught in the class before making the investment. These classes are about $250 per course. The tips alone are $100 if you decide to get the PME set. There is no set curriculum for these courses, although you do recieve a booklet outlining what should be in the classes. The instructors have to put their classes together them selves, so its going to differ on what you learn by who your teacher is.

That is true sweetcakes, but wow the price to take the classes has sure gone up over the years lol. For example, the teacher I had took 1 whole class and showed us how to do the lamebth design, which I believe wasn't in the program. If you purchase the books from Nicholas Lodge, The international school of Sugarcraft book 1 and book 2, he teaches in those books how to do a lot of what you learn in the pme courses. If you decide to go this route remember to use his recipe for royal icing, and of course practise, practise and practise some more.
