Peggy Porschen is a renowned cake designer known for her elegant, feminine style.  She has inspired countless brides and cake designers over the years with her delightful creations and three cake books.  I can remember finding Peggy’s book, Pretty Party Cakes, years ago and falling in love!  It was one of my first cake books… so I must admit that this is a bit of a treat for me today!  I squealed slightly when they invited me to physically come in to The Parlour for the ‘full experience’!  Oh my, if I only had wings!!  Definitely the next time I’m in London….

With it’s signature pink exterior and distinctive canopies, the Peggy Porschen Parlour opened in London in Autumn 2010.  Peggy was kind enough to share a few thoughts with us about her lovely shop:

“Opening the Peggy Porschen Parlour has been a life-long dream come true. There is nothing better than coming to work and opening up the doors to my pretty pink cake shop. It’s like walking into cake heaven, it has such a sense of specialness and nothing pleases me more than the delight on my customers faces when they enter  – especially the little ones!”

Customers can enjoy freshly baked cupcakes, cookies and other treats like their Lemon Limoncello layer cake.  Don’t you wish you could jump into this picture?!  I’ll take two, of everything!

And of course, Peggy still creates amazing cakes like this sophisticated pink anemone design.

While you enjoy the parlour’s dainty surroundings, you can also shop an exclusive line of goodies designed by Peggy herself.   Shelves are stacked with signature oven mitts, cookie cutters, homemade jams and cake accessories.

    After completing the Wilton’s 5 Course classes, I was so inspired to make beautiful cakes that I purchased Peggy P.’s
    Pretty Party Cakes book – a delightful book. How I would love to visit her parlour in person. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Always great to see such really nice shops. But it is such a shame that Peggy Porschen blocked users and delete comments of her fans at her facebook site if there write really constructive criticism. That is really a shame
