More About the Author

Peggy Porschen moved from her native Germany to London in 1998 to study at Le Cordon Bleu cookery school. Quickly developing an individual style, Peggy established her own business in 2003, Peggy Porschen Cakes, a bespoke design company that not only reflects her life-long love of baking but also celebrates beautiful craftsmanship, inspired by romance, femininity and fashion. Her cookies and cakes have graced many A-list events, such as Elton John's White Tie & Tiara Ball, the weddings of both Stella McCartney and Kate Moss and parties for Madonna, Sting & Trudie Styler and Gwyneth Paltrow. Peggy's first book, Pretty Party Cakes, was voted Best Entertaining Cookbook by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. She also regularly contributes to Condé Nast Brides, Wedding and Sainsbury's magazine, with many of her celebrity commissions featuring in Tatler, Vogue, OK! and Hello magazines.

Autumn 2010 saw the opening of the Peggy Porschen Parlour in London's Belgravia, then in January 2011 she opened her Academy, London's first cookery school dedicated entirely to baking, cake decorating and sugarcraft.

Product Description

Review

'Cupcakes by Peggy Porschen is filled with cute and quirky bakes for all year round. Try the spiced pumpkin cupcakes, just the right thing for a Hallowe'en bash, with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove spicing up the pumpkin, and a cinnamon frosting.' --Your Home, 1st October 2013

'Imagine lemon meringue cupcakes with curd oozing from the centre, or pink marshmallow cupcakes which taste as sweet as they look. Perhaps cosmopolitan cocktail varieties and toffee apple tasters are more your thing? This book will show you how to take them out of your imagination and on to your baking tray...' --Wedding, October 2013

'This pocket-sized book from London-based baker Peggy Porschen contains 25 recipes for dainty and delectable cupcakes. The creative cake designer shares some of the best-loved confections sold at her Belgravia shop, including Chocolate Heaven, Blackforest, Vanilla Chiffon and Sticky Toffee as well as seasonal variations such as Spiced Pumpkin for Hallowe'en and Gingerbread for Christmas. The friendly introduction offers handy tips that are suitable for bakers of all skill levels - making the fairly complex finishes and decorations seem much more achievable - and the selection of classic and more unusual recipes is nicely balanced.' --The Great British Food Magazine, October 2013

'This little gem of a book includes 25 cupcake recipes, all of which are firm favourites at the Peggy Porschen Parlour in London. With a range of delicious combinations such as lemon and raspberry, toffee apple, and carrot and walnut, there are flavours to delight even the most discerning of customers. The recipes are clearly explained, with an additional section for hints and tips, and are accompanied by beautifully styled photographs to provide presentation ideas.' --Cakes & Sugarcraft, 31st October 2013

'The bargain of the year is Peggy Porschen's Cupcakes, a teeny collection of recipes from her fabulous cake emporium. These cakes cost more than three quid each; for the price of two you can get the book. And they're yum; trust me.' --Evening Standard, 5th December 2013

'The trend of exquisite baked treats lives on, and Cupcakes by Peggy Porschen is the ultimate compilation... With dreamy photography and a dazzling array of immaculately iced beauties, this is one for those who love a bit of culinary eye candy and aren't shy of a piping bag.' --Good Housekeeping, November 2013

Huge fan of Peggy's but she's milking it a bit here. Fine for beginners but waste of money if you know what you're doing.

Lovely recipes, but would have liked a bit more content on how to achieve the look at the end result. Felt there could be a bit more instruction with the book regarding application.

Very poor example of a professional cake makers book. Just buy the 2 bigger books they are more extensive and include more examples of her work. I am a big fan of peggy porschen but this book is more of a present item for say teenagers who like cupcakes.

As you would expect from Peggy Porschen this book is delightful. It's a small book and contains a relatively small selection of cupcake/frosting recipes, all of which look delicious. I already own Boutique Baking and most of the recipes are repeats from there, albeit presented differently. I think there are about 4/5 new recipes, however, I'm glad I bought this as it's a handy size for the kitchen. If you don't own any of Peggy's books then it's certainly a good starting point as the recipes are very simple and you certainly don't need much in the way of equipment to achieve great results.

I couldn't wait to start baking. Dates are soaking ready to make sticky toffee cakes as I write. (Stocky tiffee cakes as my hubby accidently called them). Really like the way the frosting instructions are all together at the back of the book. I already have Boutique Baking so I know these recipes wont let me down.

I have tried two recipes out so far which tasted great but trying to get 24 cupcakes out of the recipes given proved impossible! I managed to get about 14 out of one recipe. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem?!
