Peggy Porschen is one of the leading bakers and cake decorators of our generation. With her unique individual style, the business was an instant success, receiving commissions for exclusive celebration cakes and cookies. Her first book, Pretty Party Cakes won Peggy the award for "Best Entertaining Cookbook" from the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. More recently, at the prestigious 2011 Great Taste Awards, Peggy won four commendations, including the highly coveted Great Taste Gold Award for her Chocolate Heaven and Black Forest Cupcakes with the judges describing her cupcakes as "virtually faultless." In an exciting development, October 2010 saw the opening of the Peggy Porschen Parlour in London's Belgravia, where Peggy's ready-to-eat collection of handcrafted cakes are available daily. In January 2011 she opened the Peggy Porschen Academy, London's first cookery school entirely dedicated to baking, cake decorating and sugar craft.
