New softcover book, 144 pages, published 2009. Gorgeous full-colour photos and step-by-step instructions.

Peggy Porschen has established herself as the doyenne of stylish decorated cakes, cupcakes and cookies, having designed them for world-famous partygoers including Elton John and Stella McCartney.

In her very successful first book, Pretty Party Cakes, celebrity cake designer Peggy Porschen brought us a range of fabulously stylish decorated cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Now, in Romantic Cakes, she has applied her inspirational vision to her own favourite subject area - cookies and cakes for romantic occasions. There are delights to celebrate all the steps on the course of true love, from the earliest stirrings of affection on St. Valentine's Day, through the proposal and engagement, the bridal shower and hen or stag nights up to the big day itself. And for the weddings, Peggy has included all manner of irresistible inventions, from decorated cookie favors, bridesmaids' gifts and decorations for the children's table.

Beginning with an easy-to-follow introduction covering all the equipment, basic recipes and techniques needed to make the cakes, the book is designed to suit both beginners and more experienced cooks. Chapters cover Cookies, Small Cakes and Large Cakes and include delights such as Venetian Mask Cookies, Je t'Aime Fondant Fancies and the breathtaking Bed of Roses. User-friendly text and clear step-by-step photography make even the most elaborate creations achievable so that every romantic occasion can be made a little bit sweeter. Peggy's first book, Pretty Party Cakes won the 2005 Gourmand Award for Best Book for Entertaining in the World.

This book is a UK publication, all measurements are in metric and imperial.

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.
