Christmas Celebrations at Peggy Porschen

There is something magical upon entering the Peggy Porschen tea parlour in Belgravia. The pretty pastels and sparkling cakes, the artisan teas and the beautiful exterior displays, all make up one of the most photographed venues in London.

As a child growing up in a small village near Cologne in Germany, Peggy always knew she wanted to become a cake designer.  Discovering the art of 'British Sugar Craft' while working as a flight attendant, a job which took Peggy on regular trips to London, Peggy saw a way to make her passion for cakes, a profession.  

Peggy went on to complete Le Cordon Bleu’s ‘The Grand Diploma of Cuisine & Patisserie’ in 1999, holding a number of prestigious Pastry chef positions in London before ultimately fulfilling her ambition of launching her bespoke cake company in 2003; Peggy Porschen Cakes. To this day, Peggy Porschen Ltd is a hands-on British company that not only reflects her life-long love of baking, but also celebrates beautiful craftsmanship, inspired by a love of romance, fashion and femininity. 

The Lady caught up with Peggy to find out her festive inspiration and creative process of designing cakes...
