IN A NUTSHELL
Renowned for irresistibly pretty and elegant designs that are not only visually stunning but also taste delicious, Peggy has acquired an enviable client list including many celebrities, Royals and members of high society. Her cookies and cakes have graced many A-list events such as the 2011 wedding of Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Elton John’s White Tie & Tiara Ball, Stella McCartney’s wedding, Sir Anthony Hopkins’ 70th birthday, Damien Hirst’s auction at Sotheby’s and parties for Sting and Trudie Styler, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, all of which make her a highly sought after name on the party-planning circuit.
Autumn 2010 saw the opening of the Peggy Porschen Parlour in London’s Belgravia. For the first time Peggy was able to offer her previously made-to-order only designs to all on an everyday basis. The Parlour serves freshly baked cupcakes, cookies and layer cakes and also offers a selection of Peggy’s own blend teas, inspired by flavours found in her kitchen. The Parlour is also home to Peggy’s Bridal Boutique, available to clients by appointment only.
January 2011 marked the opening of Peggy’s first Cake Academy. London’s first cookery school entirely dedicated to baking, cake decorating and sugar craft which is located opposite the Parlour in Belgravia. Following unprecedented demand for her past master classes, Peggy has personally created a comprehensive year-round curriculum with project-based and technique-lead courses and classes to suit a variety of proficiency levels, from those wishing to complete the professional diploma and kick start a career in cakes, to those looking for a fun and enriching day out.
