As many a cake lover will tell you, the culinary delight of a sweet treat is not dependent on taste alone. The appeal of sprinkles, swirls and twirls is usually what makes us post our fancy Red Velvet on the ‘gram (sorry, Rice Crispy Cakes). Fortunately, Peggy Porschen Cakes will leave both your followers and taste buds more than satisfied. Stop by at perhaps the most Insta-worthy café in London and you (and your feed) won’t regret it...
Peggy Porschen Cakes is headed by award-winning cake designer, author and Creative Director, Peggy Porschen and her husband Bryn Morrow. Peggy grew up in a small village near Cologne, Germany, and always knew she wanted to make her passion for baking her career. Having worked as a flight attendant, Peggy visited London numerous times and went on to hold a number of prestigious pastry chef titles, and completed her Le Cordon Bleu’s ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’ in 1999.
Situated in London’s Belgravia, Peggy Porschen Parlour opened in 2010. For the first time, Peggy was able to offer her previously made-to-order only designs to everyone on a daily basis. The parlour’s pastel pink walls and stunning bouquet arch leads to patisseries galore and charming fairy-tale décor. Peggy is passionate about creating intricate, edible works of art. The chandeliers glitter above a selection of cupcakes, cookies and layer cakes. Sitting in the café (or just outside) sounds like the cherry on top.
Leading her talented team of pastry chefs, January 2011 marked the opening of Peggy’s Cake Academy, London’s first cookery school dedicated entirely to baking, cake decorating and sugar-craft, which is situated opposite the Parlour in Belgravia. Peggy bakes for special occasions, birthdays, weddings, corporate events, baby showers and more. Her beautiful creations have graced A-list events such as the 2011 wedding of Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, and Stella McCartney’s Wedding.
It’s fair to say that Peggy Porschen Cakes will guarantee not only delicious cupcakes and a splendid afternoon, but tons of Instagram likes. However, beware. You may never want to leave.
