Peggy Porschen has spearheaded the whole shift of cake decor from traditional to cutting edge. After the enormous success of her Pretty Party Cakes and Romantic Cakes, Peggy now focuses her considerable creative talents on an idea close to her heart and for which she is increasingly in demand - super stylish cakes for all manner of occasions. In this book she combines her amazing gift for matching charming design with striking colour and her effortless flair for accessorizing cakes like fashion outfits to produce her most striking and elegant collection of cakes yet. She also puts even more emphasis on making her cakes taste every bit as good as they look, adding new and exciting flavours to her basic cakes, as well as using the best and most flavoursome of organic ingredients. There are ideas for events like milestone birthdays, girly tea parties, baby showers, and hen nights, as well as more exotic occasions like cocktail parties, anniversaries and pool parties. However, Cake Chic isn't necessarily just for girls, but will suit anyone who wants to put on a memorable show with the minimum of fuss.

Author Information

Peggy Porschen grew up in Germany, a country renowned for its cakes. She moved to London in 1998 graduating top of her class at the prestigious Cordon Bleu school. From there, she went on to work as pastry chef at the Lanesborough Hotel and with master baker Gerhart Jenne at Konditor and Cook on London's South Bank. Quickly developing her own highly individual style, she left there to set up her own business, which was instantly successful. Soon she was making cakes and cookies for major events of all kinds, including chocolate Faberge Eggs for guests at Elton John's 2003 White Tie and Tiara Ball. Most recently she supplies Fortnum & Mason with an exquisite range of decorated cookies and speciality confections. Her cakes have been featured in the Daily Mail, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times, Wedding Flowers, Brides, You and Your Wedding, Wedding Day, OK, Delicious and Marie Claire.
