Publishers Text

Peggy Porschen is one of the most prominent and pioneering names in contemporary cake design. Renowned for her exquisite craftsmanship combined with a love of baking, her passion is for creating delectable works of art that taste as good as they look. This new book captures the essence of Peggy's technical skill and inspired use of colour while also ensuring that each cake is both achievable and delicious to eat.

Boutique Baking has an unrivalled range of recipes that combines traditional baking with chic, simple decoration. The first chapter, Sweet Treats, features all-time favorites such as Meringue Kisses and Macarons as well as Peggy's take on Cake Pops. In Beautiful Biscuits there are recipes inspired by her German origins including Springerle and Mulled Wine Stars. The third chapter focuses on the most desirable cake phenomenon of the decade—the cupcake, and Peggy gives away the secrets of her incredibly scrumptious repertoire of gourmet cupcakes. The Luscious Layer Cake chapter provides stunning ideas for sophisticated occasions while Classic Cakes & Bakes shows how to revive traditional recipes, creating gorgeous looking and delicious cakes, such as Neapolitan Marble Cake and Chocolate Battenberg. Next follows a chapter of delicious ideas for home-made drinks that perfectly accompany the preceding cakes. Last but certainly not least the book closes with The Icing on the Cake, a resource of fabulous tips, techniques and finishing touches from this leading expert baker.

Both seductive and indulgent, this is Peggy's most accessible book to date.
