My lovely father treated me to a lovely little trip to the Peggy Porschen Parlour earlier this week to eat some lovely lovely cakes. We had been planning to go for ages so it was good to finally find a time to do it. I hadn’t been there before but apparently he walks past it all the time and thought that as I’m someone who loves making cakes and loves cake shops that it would be a good place for us to go, and we do both love a cup of tea and cake. The parlour is a pretty little cake shop close to Victoria station in London. Even from the outside it looks wonderfully pretty and pink! Inside is very small but just big enough at the same time and you are greeted with a beautiful display of cakes at the counter as soon as you walk in including strawberry and champagne cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes and some gorgeous layered cakes decorated with stencils. There is also a tea and coffee menu so you can sit and enjoy your cake with a drink at one of the tables in the shop. The cakes aren’t cheap but they are very delicious. I opted for a dainty and delightful lemon chiffon cupcake with a floral rose tea and my Dad went for a huge slice of lemon and passionfruit cake with a peppermint and green tea, he certainly gave it the thumbs up. They sell books, cake stands, cookie cutters and cake filling as well in the shop, I loved the little cupcake cake stands, I think one of those might have to become an addition to my cake stand collection at some point. The Peggy Porschen recipe books were gorgeous and may have to be my next recipe book purchase, some lovely looking recipes! We had a walk past the Peggy Porschen Academy too with its lovely display of wedding cakes in the windows, tiered cakes are something I want to master. I had a look at the Academy online, there are so many fabulous sounding courses on offer….maybe one day when I’m not a student!
So next time you are near Victoria and have a fancy for tea and cake, I can recommend Peggy Porschen! You can find it on the corner at 116 Ebury Street, Belgravia. Enjoy!
