Bath Cake Company has been awarded with the PME Professional Diploma UK and Ireland Award of Excellence 2016 as part of PME’s Wall of Honour 2016.

The accolade was presented to Bath Cake Company for its “outstanding contributions on all levels where the PME Professional Diploma courses are concerned”.

The PME Professional Diploma and Masters Certificate consists of three diploma courses – PME Sugarpaste, PME Sugar Flowers and PME Royal Icing.

At the end of each course, a student is awarded with a PME Diploma Certificate, and if they go on to complete all three, they will also receive their PME Professional Masters Certificate.

Celia Adams, managing director of Bake Cake Company, said she was proud to have been awarded for the business’ efforts in teaching the PME Diploma courses and Masters Certificate.

“We’ve been teaching these highly sought-after courses for over three years, and it’s wonderful to have been recognised by PME themselves for the work we have done,” Adams said. “I couldn’t recommend the courses more – they’re perfect for people looking to better their cake decorating skills and those looking to start their own cake business.”

She added: “We have both beginner to advanced students who attend and everyone comes away having learnt something new and with more confidence in their skills. As well as learning sugarcraft techniques, each course includes discussing basic business guidelines for setting up a cake business.”

Bath Cake Company’s Decorating School opened at the beginning of 2014 and is home to the south west’s largest range of cake decorating classes.
