Welcoming Peggy Porschen

“As the couturier is the fashion, Porschen is to cakes: an artisanal maverick who wees the finished piece as unique thing of beauty. But as the best couture is wearable, so the best cakes are more than edible”. – Financial Times

We are honoured to have celebrity cake designer, Peggy Porschen, join us as a guest teacher at the Bonnie Gordon School. Popularly known for her fine, hand-crafted cakes, Peggy’s work can be only described as flawless, unique and highly sought after A-list celebrities that include Elton John, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney.

Her career in baking and cake decorating began when Peggy moved from Germany to London to take a Cordon Bleu course in French patisserie. After graduating from the course, she worked as a pastry chef at London’s Lanesborough Hotel, and as a cake designer at Konditor & Cook Bakery and Restaurant before opening up her own business.

Peggy is an author to two highly acclaimed books, Pretty Party Cakes and Romantic Cakes. In April 2010, she will be launching her third book titled, Simply Spectacular Cakes. But as a special preview, this book will be available at the Bonnie Gordon School when Peggy comes to visit in November!

Join us at the Bonnie Gordon School on Thursday, November 19/09 from 7-9:30 and spend an evening with Peggy Porschen. She'll be there discussing her design experience and inspirations, along with a question & answer period and book signing.

Not enough Peggy?

Well, sign up for a three-day workshop to Design a Wedding Cake with Peggy Porschen. All supplies and lunch will be provided as you follow the life and style of working with a celebrity cake designer. This one time class will be held on Friday, November 20/09 – Sunday, November 22/09, 10-4:30pm.

See you in class!
