Synopsis: Cakes in Bloom is a celebration of Peggy's skill, style and experience and the first time that she has shared her repertoire of incomparable sugar blooms with her legions of fans. The ultimate reference and inspiration for sugarcrafters, this book reflects Peggy's mastery of a breath-taking array of flowers, creatively used on a variety of cakes. Peggy demonstrates a broad range of techniques, embracing all the basics as well the particular skills needed to make each individual flower. As with all her creations, Peggy's cakes are as good to eat as they are to look at, so there are signature recipes for delicious cakes and fail-safe fillings. Peggy reveals the secrets to making more than 30 gorgeous life-like flowers, from roses, peonies and pansies to cherry blossom, orchids and poppies. The range of 24 cakes includes miniature cakes, large cakes and tiered cakes, demonstrating the simplest use of a single flower as well as inspired combinations of blooms. The wealth of ideas and variations includes a wide range of occasions from birthdays, anniversaries and weddings to simple but special tea parties.
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 Conde 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.
