Cakes and flowers. Not just any cakes, Peggy Porschen cakes. A name synonymous with exceptional quality and the best wedding cakes money can buy. Oh, and the taste. Out of this world. I remember scrapbooking about 3 or 4 of Peggy’s cakes for my own wedding but with my family owning their own bakeries, it would have been silly to turn down their generous offer. Peggy has just released her new Floral Collection and we were lucky enough to preview it. If you fancy sampling some of these delicious delicacies then you can head to the Peggy Porschen Parlour.
The blog received a beautiful invite to view and sample Peggy’s new Floral Cake Collection, were we going to turn that offer down? No. Emily was exceptionally excited to receive such an offer and I was exceptionally jealous. I also asked the wonderful London based photographer Kari Bellamy if she would do us the honour of photographing the cakes and flowers (created by the ever so talented Nikki Tibbles of Wild at Heart).
I’ve always found cake decorating fascinating. I love watching the TV shows where they make cakes into a giant whimsical creation, like the tajma hall or to look like your favourite pet. But what I find incredibly fascinating about Peggy’s Cakes is that they are just as extraordinary, but so refined and elegant. When you first look at the cakes, you make the assumption that the flowers are real. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
The cake samples tasted amazing. They had a new flavour called Salted
Caramel that pretty much made me consider re-doing my wedding so I
could have that cake. (perhaps a birthday cake would be a much more
practical approach :))
