Visiting Peggy Porschen Cakes //

Dear Readers,

I was lucky enough to be able to have one of my recent magazine meetings at the simply splendid Peggy Porschen cake shop.

Opening Times: Monday - Sunday 10am-6pm
Located chicly on the crossroads of Elizabeth Street and Ebury Street in Belgravia, it is the ideal spot to watch the busy people of London carry out their lives whilst you sip from a baby pink teacup. It is something out of a young girl's fairy tale and the pastel hues brought me back to my childhood. It was very reminiscent of Barbie and the Nutcracker

The Peggy Porschen company, which boasts of clients such as Kate Moss, Stella McCartney and Elton John has a team of pastry chefs and sugar artists who manage to create the most decadent cakes, cupcakes and cookies. You can sip on tea or coffee or even a glass of pink rosé too.

Typically places that are highly recommended come with a catch, like a long wait time or lacking quality, but Peggy Porschen Cakes manages to hit the spot every single time. I was also pleasantly surprised by the pricing of the food and drink and found that it was affordable. The large scale cakes however, were on the dearer side. (Scroll down to find the Gingerbread Winter Village).

The staff working there were very polite and welcoming. I appreciated that they were also understanding of the fact that I could not stop taking pictures.

Peggy Porschen also offers an Academy, a programme which has been running since 2011 by Peggy herself, which gives cake lovers from across the world the opportunity to develop their skills and share their passions with like-minded people. You can go for a short one or two day course, or even get a diploma. There is lots to choose from so why not give it a go?

These Christmas inspired cookies are the perfect stocking filler this Christmas - from £6.95

Gingerbread Winter Village - 'With a heavenly scent of sugar and spice, this edible winter wonderland hides three indulgent tiers of rich fruit cake covered with marzipan and royal icing, plus a two tier gingerbread church, perfect for devouring on Christmas Day.' - £650

I highly recommend that you take the time to visit Peggy Porschen's Parlour now whilst the windows are still adorned with festive baubles and the cosy interior invites you in even more. It is a place full of so much charm, it would be almost sinful not to take a trip there.

Stay Sweet,

Alice xx
