Part of the course will consist in live sessions, 3 hours per week, so before booking, you must make sure you will be available to attend each session, using a video and audio connection to allow you to interact with your instructor.
A MAXIMUM OF 4 STUDENTS PER SESSION
Live sessions will run one day per week for five consecutive weeks, from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm ( UK time). Doors will open from 6.20 pm and close at 6.30 pm. Ribana will cover many topics related to the skill of working with sugar paste.
During each live session, she will demonstrate while answering your questions, each technique included in the course's topic.
All videos (offline and live recorded) will be available for you to watch at any time three months from the course's starting date.
You can complete the homework offline, submitting the photos/ videos showing the results at your convenience. Close up photos/ videos showing the final projects (tasks) will have to reach us for evaluation.
If the craft level meets the criteria at the end of the course, you will be receiving the PME professional diploma sugar paste course.
For your final assessment, you will have to send us to close up ( step by step) photos/ videos of a decorated 3 tiered cake, a decorated cake with corners( either square or oblong), one decorated carved cake, 2 decorated cookies and 2 cupcakes, 2 hand modelled figurines of your choice.
On preparing your projects, you can use your own designs or reproduce the designs taught by your instructor during the course, your choice.
A MAXIMUM OF 4 STUDENTS PER SESSION
Our suggestion will be to use real cakes to practice if possible. You will gain a better understanding of how to control the fondant at different temperatures and humidity.
The assessment will not consider your baking skills, so if you prefer, you can use dummy cakes where possible. The carved cake project will be based on a real cake.
In case you need more time to practice accomplishing the expected results, you can submit your homework within three months from the date the course will end. Sending the photos later than three months will incur a £10 charge.
In case the quality of the artistry does not meet the criteria, you will need to redo the projects and resend the results. Starting with the third submission, a charge of £ 10 will be payable for each reassessing session.
If you cannot attend a live session for any reason, this will be available for you to watch it recorded. You cannot miss more than one live session, so make sure you can attend the dates selected when you proceed with your booking. If something unpredicted will happen after booking the course, you will be able to transfer the booking for the following session after paying a £ 30 admin fee.
