Skills validated by the certification

  • C1. Design a personalized event cake project based on the customer's requirements (type of event, theme, number of guests (portions), cake height, colors, flavors) and budget, in order to produce a price proposal including the format, content and sketch of the proposed final result of the cake, and have it validated by the customer before going into production.
  • C2. Produce the cookie bases for the artistic tiered cake, using specific sponge cake recipes and ensuring the right density of textures and balance between lipid and carbohydrate levels, in order to make it easy to cut, preserve its taste balance and guarantee that it holds up well during the event.
  • C3. Build up the composition of the artistic event cake by choosing or combining several types of creams (buttercream, ganache, cream cheese) and biscuits, taking care to balance the various fillings in order to finalize the cake's structure while ensuring that it holds up well at room temperature, as the cake is exposed for several hours at the event venue.
  • C4. Smooth the decorative event cake by distributing the ganache (white, dark or milk chocolate, or buttercream) over the whole cake, ensuring that it is even and just the right thickness, to give the cake good external rigidity, make it more airtight for better preservation, and thus secure its structure before working on the sugar paste and various decorative elements.
  • C5. Finalize the tiered cake with the sugarpaste covering, giving it a smooth, thin consistency, using specific kneading techniques to avoid cracking and tearing, and choosing the types of colorants compatible with the sugarpaste and in keeping with the chosen theme of the event, so as to ensure that the decorative elements hang firmly and the finished aesthetic effect is perfect (smooth, impeccable right angles, etc.).
  • C6. Construct the entire structure of the sculpted cake (object, character, animal, etc.) from the designed project, creating it with specific materials, then insulating them with materials compatible with food contact to ensure the solidity and balance of the whole, while preventing contact of the materials with the edible part to guarantee food and health safety.
  • C7. Add edible decorative elements in volume, such as floral compositions, draped fabric effects, lace, reproductions of objects or characters, etc. by modeling decorative objects and cutting flower paste or wafer paper to reproduce realistic flowers, or other complex artistic effects of great realism and extreme finesse to personalize the creation to a very high level of expected quality.
  • C8. Decorate tiered or sculpted event cakes, using specific edible painting techniques (airbrush, brush, stencils, printing, reproductions, etc.) and ensuring that the theme of the event is respected, in order to give the cake a highly accomplished artistic finish by adding texture and relief, and possibly highlighting realistic elements of the decor.

This certification is registered with France Compétences with code RS6632.
