Overview

Peggy Porschen is the doyenne of fabulously stylish decorated cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Charming designs in striking colors have become her trademark. By turns enchanting and dramatic, her intriguingly shaped cakes and cookies feature flora and fauna, like flowers and butterflies, or geometric and abstract patterns.  Her first book, Pretty Party Cakes, drew such comments as ‘[she is] like Cath Kidston meets Nigella Lawson’. In this, her second book, Peggy applies that vision to her own favorite subject area—romance. There are the glorious wedding cakes for which she first rose to fame, but she has also devised wondrous flights of fancy to celebrate true love, from its earliest stirrings on Valentine’s Day, through proposal and engagement, the wedding shower and to the big day itself—and even anniversaries.

Designed to suit readers of all skill levels, the book also contains an easy-to-follow Basics section covering equipment, recipes and techniques. Readers can then confidently tackle projects like Peggy’s evocative Venetian Mask Cookies, her irresistible Je t’Aime Fondant Fancies, the sweetest way to pop the question – and even attempt a spectacular, like her breathtaking Bed of Roses.

There is something for everybody from projects so simple beginners can achieve rewarding results to more complex assemblages, but clear text and step-by-step photography make even these easy. Peggy’s edible fantasies will make you want to take up palette knife and icing bag to create these irresistibly pretty cookies and cakes. Romance radiates from every page and no one could fail to be seduced by Peggy’s vivid world of love.

    Great book

    I loved this book. Not only are the pictures beautiful but they inspire you to perfect your baking and decorating skills. I have used one of the cookie recipes as well as a cake recipe and they were delicious. But, I love referring to it for decorating tips !

    Beautiful Cakes true to name

    The cakes and other tasty treats are very beautiful, however seems unlikely that a novice will be able to successfully create most of them. Very neat ideas and themes.
