Certification / Certificates of completion

The Ecole de Cake Design de Paris proposes two certifying courses.

The “Design and create tiered or sculpted cakes (Cake Design)” certification is recognized by the French State (registered by France Compétences under code RS6632 in the Répertoire Spécifique (RS)).

To obtain certification at the end of your training, you must have a CAP patissier diploma or be in the process of having it, have an interest and taste for decoration and aesthetics, and have basic graphic and artistic skills.

You will obtain this certification if you pass the end-of-training examination.

As a certifying organization, we will register this certification in your name with Caisse des Dépôts.

For non-certifying courses, if you are successful, you will receive a training certificate at the end of the course.


To register, simply complete the registration form.

The registration will be validated after the payment of a deposit of an amount equal to:

  • 100% of the price for courses that cost less than 350€.
  • 50% of the price for courses that cost less than 900€.
  • 30% of the price for courses that cost more than 900€.

There is no registration fee.

Registration for our certifying courses will be confirmed once we have validated your skills and motivation.

Payment methods

Payment possible in cash, by check, transfer or bank card (transaction secured by Banque Populaire).

You can choose to pay in instalments when you apply.

The full price of the course must be paid on the first day of the training.

You can pay the balance of the course by credit card in full or in installments via the link provided in the registration confirmation email.

How to register?

A place is reserved only after payment of a deposit, receipt of a funding agreement or validation of your registration on Mon Compte Formation.
For professional courses, it is also necessary for the student to return the contract signed.

In case of too many requests, reservations are accepted according to the date of receipt of the deposit or the certificate of support.

Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF) / Mon Compte Formation

Our professional certifying courses can be financed with your Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF) on Mon Compte Formation.

Financing with your Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF) is only possible if you have a CAP pâtissier or are in the process of having it. You will be asked to provide proof.

Our short courses cannot be financed with your CPF, as only certifying courses can be (article L.6323-6 of the French Labor Code).

Funding organizations

The Cake Design School of Paris (Gateaux sur Mesure) is Qualiopi certified (certificate visible here).

La certification qualité a été délivrée au titre de la catégorie d’action suivante: actions de formation.

This certification makes our professional courses eligible for public funding. Only our professional training can be financed, the leisure workshops do not fall under professional training.

Our training has already been covered by the following organizations:

  • Agefiph
  • Agefos
  • Conseil régional Hauts de France
  • Conseil régional Grand Est
  • Fafcea
  • Fafih
  • Fongecif
  • OPCA Transports
  • France Travail (Pôle Emploi)
  • Servair formation

This list is not exhaustive, contact the organization on which you depend to know if you can be taken care of and know the steps to take.

Quote to obtain financing

To obtain a personalized quote requested by the funding organizations, simply make a request to register for the chosen course and select “Request a quote” as the request type.

We are registered on France Travail Kairos system and are therefore able to provide a dematerialized quote if your advisor requests it. For that you will have to communicate us your France Travail identifier. You will then have to validate this quote in your personal France Travail area for it to be sent to your advisor.

We advise you to do it as soon as possible because the response times of organizations can be long.

Registration for courses supported by a funding organization

Your registration will only be final after receipt of the following:

  • The agreement to cover the costs from the funding organization.
  • The payment of a deposit of 30% of the rest to be paid in the event of partial financing.
  • The signed course contract.

We will not block places without the above items.
