“Really,” says Peggy Porschen, “all I wanted to do in London was my training as a patissier. But then Elton John came along.” What sounds like the prelude to a modern fairy tale was in reality the starting signal for a remarkable career as a “cake designer”.
In London’s high society, Peggy Porschen, who hails from Düren, North Rhine-Westphalia has long been known as “Queen of Cakes”, and even Hollywood stars order wedding and birthday cakes, tarts and biscuits from her. She finds her inspiration for successive new creations in the streets of trend metropolis London. Whether Retro or Baroque, Peggy Porschen has perfected the art of transforming the latest trends into cake form. Yet she invariably remains faithful there to her own style: very pretty, romantic, detailed and filigree.
With her “Pretty Party Cakes” book of recipes, Peggy Porschen invites readers into her world of biscuits, muffins, small cakes and celebratory cream cakes, the making of which is explained with much love of detail and numerous photos of her creations. So emulating her as a hobby cakemaker becomes a creative experience and ensures the success of that next coffee-and-cake session.
