Peggy Porschen Cakes
Fascinated by baking and cake decorating from childhood, Peggy moved from her home in Germany to London in 1998 to study at the internationally renowned cookery school Le Cordon Bleu. After successfully completing ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’, Peggy held a number of prestigious Pastry chef positions in London. Quickly developing her own style, Peggy set up her own business in 2003 founding Peggy Porschen Cakes, a bespoke British design company that not only reflects her life-long love of baking but also celebrates beautiful craftsmanship, inspired by romance, fashion and femininity. Peggy has since become one of the most prominent and pioneering names in contemporary cake design and is renowned for irresistibly pretty and elegant designs that are not only visually stunning but also taste delicious. Author of four highly acclaimed titles, Peggy is widely known to have redefined the art of modern sugar craft. Her first book Pretty Party Cakes was voted ‘Best Entertaining Cookbook’ by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. Peggy also regularly contributes to a number of influential titles including Condé Nast Brides and Wedding Magazine.
