Seasonal baking recipes for special occasions, from the world’s prettiest bakery.
With its fairytale pink façade and picture-perfect cupcakes, the Peggy Porschen Parlour has become a destination bakery for sweet-toothed Londoners and tourists from all around the world. Over half a million people follow Peggy's creations and seasonal floral displays on Instagram and her customers flock to her London Parlours – often dressed in 'Peggy pink' – for an exquisite sweet treat.
This book pays tribute to the magic Peggy weaves with her bakes through every season. Going through the year and punctuated by special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and Christmas, the recipes cover cakes, iced cookies and cupcakes and reflect the changing seasons. The more technical bakes are illustrated with clear step-by-step photography. Peggy also shares some of her unique style secrets – covering spring, summer, autumn and winter – so that fans can recreate this stunning lifestyle at home.
Peggy Porschen moved from her native Germany to London in 1998 to study at Le Cordon Bleu cookery school. Quickly developing an individual sugarcraft style, Peggy established her own business in 2003.
Her cookies and cakes have graced many A-list events, such as Elton John's White Tie & Tiara Ball, the weddings of both Stella McCartney and Kate Moss, and parties for Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
She also regularly contributes to Condé Nast Brides and Wedding, with many of her celebrity commissions featuring in Tatler, Vogue, OK!, and Hello! magazines. Her previous books include Cakes in Bloom and Lovely Layer Cakes, both published by Quadrille.
