Skill Upgrade : PME Professional Diploma Course (Sugar Flowers)

Hooray! I can now make different varieties of sugar flowers! I completed the PME (UK) Professional Diploma Course in Sugar Flowers in October 2010. This was a  6-day intensive course, conducted at Artisan Cake Craft by Calvin Mark Ng, wedding cake designer and founder of Black Forest Tavern.

All blooms and buds were handcrafted from gumpaste then hand painted with food colors and dusted with edible petal dust. Although the PME course content  focuses on  commercial  type flowers but Calvin also taught us the biological version of some of the flowers.  He really is an excellent and dedicated instructor.
