New softcover book, 144 pages, first published 2005, reprinted 2011. Gorgeous full-colour photos and step-by-step instructions.

A romantic Three-Column Wedding Cake adorned with fresh roses; eye-catching Kaleidoscope Cakes iced in geometric designs; glittering Bollywood-inspired lollipop cookies - you don’t have to go to a high-end bakery to be able to serve these beautiful desserts at your next party. Master cake decorator Peggy Porschen shares her designs for the gorgeous cookies, cupcakes, and cakes that have graced some of the world’s most discriminating tables - and they’re as easy to create as they are spectacular. Written for everyone from beginning bakers to seasoned pros, each design in Pretty Party Cakes is broken down into basic steps that turn even complicated cake sculptures into rewarding, accessible creations.

Pretty Party Cakes is brimming with dozens of innovative designs that are all based on fundamental recipes provided in Porschen’s introduction to the basics. This section also covers the equipment and techniques needed to make her luscious creations. Once you’ve mastered the key skills, you can confidently move to chapters on cookies, cupcakes, miniature cakes, and large cakes. Designs range from sparkling heart cakes and butterfly-topped pastel cupcakes to enchanting, edible Treasure Boxes that can be used to present gifts. Ambitious bakers can create stunning desserts such as the Romantic Rose Tower cake and Gift Box Cake, and even simpler sweets such as Alphabet Cookies and Chocolate Canapés will wow your guests with their alluring presentation.

Packed with tips, step-by-step images, and striking photographs to accompany every design, Pretty Party Cakes brings together everything you need to re-create Peggy Porschen’s delicious masterpieces. Whether you’re preparing a wedding cake for dozens of guests or creating a showstopping dessert for an intimate dinner party, these stunning designs will be sure to rival the cakes that line the windows of the chicest designer bakeries.

An all-encompassing guide to creating shockingly simple - yet stunning - cakes, cookies, and cupcakes that rival those from even the most fashionable designer bakeries.

About the author

Fascinated by baking and cake decorating from childhood, Peggy Porschen moved from her home in Germany to London in 1998 to take a Cordon Bleu course in French patisserie. From there she worked as a pastry chef at London's Lanesborough Hotel and celebrated caterer Rhubarb Food Design, followed by a position as cake decorator at Konditor & Cook, the bakery and restaurant near London's Old Vic Theatre.

Quickly developing a highly individual style, she set up her own business, making cakes and cookies for events of all kinds, including chocolate Faberge Eggs for Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball - featured in several magazines world wide. She also created Stella McCartney's wedding cake as well as cakes for many movie premiers and parties for stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna and corporate parties for companies of the fashion and music industry.

Peggy is a supplier to Fortnum & Mason who have commissioned her to create their seasonal ranges of hand decorated cakes and cookies to adorn their shelves & hampers. She is a regular contributor to various magazines, such as You & Your Wedding, Brides, Harper's Bazaar, Wedding, Marie Claire, Delicious, and her work has appeared in many more.
