A celebrated Belgravia bakery

Looking pretty in pink, this cute candy-floss emporium from patisserie queen and cake designer extraordinaire Peggy Porschen is an absolute wow – whether you’re purchasing some of her outrageously elaborate confections from the boutique or sitting down for cake and a cuppa in her self-styled parlour. There aren’t many tables, so be prepared to wait for your chosen treat – perhaps ‘glorious Victoria’ sponge, vanilla cloud or dark chocolate truffle cake. Best off all, try one of her sexy cupcakes (red velvet, cookies and cream, etc) with a glass of champers, a ‘babyccino’ or one of PP’s own-brand teas (sugar plum, anyone?).

Like everyone else, I'd seen the Instagram pictures for this and really wanted to go. We went on a Sunday afternoon and queued for around 20 minutes and then got a table inside. Whilst queuing, be prepared to have to continuously get out of the way of people posing in the doorway.

When seated we then tried to order and the first few drinks we wanted we were told they didn't have or the machine was broken, no spiced latte, no hot chocolate, so I ordered a peppermint tea which was ok. We both ordered a slice of cake which was huge and again, ok, nothing special. This place is definitely all about the exterior, it's lovely from the outside and in the interior is cute but a bit disappointing after seeing the outside and having high expectations and the toilets are actually pretty grim! It is very small in here and obviously busy and my coat was repeatedly stepped on by staff and people passing through and I did feel very rushed out of there. All in all, I wouldn't return here sadly.

Finally made the time to visit Peggy Porschen Cakes at the weekend. It had been popping up on my instagram for a while! We went on a Saturday afternoon, and it was fairly busy. We had to wait for 30 mins to get a table. Luckily, it was a warm Autumn day, so were able to sit outside. 


It is true, there are hoards of people, who turn up just to take photos of the floral display on the shop front. Currently, they have decorated it in a halloween theme. With pumpkins, and skulls, but it still looks very pretty - with pink, purple pumpkins & gold skulls.


I ordered the cookies & cream cupcake with a spiced chai latte - new in for the autumn season. Considering the cupcakes cost over £5, I was expecting more. The cookies & cream I found was  quite dry. On the other hand, my friend had ordered the chocolate heaven cupcake, now this truly was heavenly. Moist, and very chocolatey. 


Overall, I really enjoyed my time at PPC. It was definitely a treat, & would probably call back there again for a special occasion.


My Fiance and I went here for some tea and cake on Valentines day. We had tea, two cupcakes and shared a slice of cake. We had a strawberry and champagne flavoured one. A cookies and cream one. The cake was vanilla flavoured. The sponge was unreal. I also had to try a hot chocolate. Definitely the best cake I have had so far in London. There was a wait to get in but it was worth it. I want to go back and try more flavours. Its so pretty inside too! and out.

Yum! I had the salted caramel cupcake and forest fruits tea and both were delicious, if a little pricey (£4.80 for a small cupcake is pushing it a bit). Lovely atmosphere and very Instagramable, but only a few tables inside and out. Would love to go back and try other cupcake flavours.


I'm a sucker for cupcakes and all things pink so it's no surprise that I'm a fan of Peggy Porschen. The popularity of this shop is probably its biggest con as you have to nudge your way through eager Instagrammers just to get through the front door! It's usually tricky to get a table to eat in but the cupcakes are delicious and beautifully presented, albeit a bit overpriced. My favourite is the strawberry and champagne cupcake, wonderfully sweet but not overpowering!


I was so disappointed by the cake here. My friend and I got two different ones, the chocolate and the vanilla, and both were incredibly dry. It's all about the looks here and not about the quality and freshness.

I was really looking forward for my visit to Peggy Porschen after seeing what she can do to a wedding cake. But, as it usually happens, expectation is a killer. I visited on a busy Saturday so the staff was friendly enough, but just trying to survive the rush from cake-o'clock. The cakes looked nice, but on the small size considering the price you pay. I hanged on to the premium location and ingredients, and ordered a slice of the salted caramel cake with 3 different sponges stacked up to form the cake. While I could really taste the salted caramel between layers, the sponges were dry and dense - maybe to hold on all the stacking a wedding cake needs? Over all, I pushed myself to finish my small slice, even thought the environment was pleasant and entertaining enough. From what I've read, maybe the cupcakes have a better chance to stand out.

There's a pink cupcake shop in Belgravia that's straight out of a Disney fairytale and it's called Peggy Porschen. Situated on the corner of Elizabeth Street; it's like a candy coloured gateway to sugar heaven that's so popular that married couples often head their way for a newly wed snap shot. You can sit outside of this slice of heaven in Belgravia and watch the elite go by. Or you can sit inside with a cup of tea and peruse the books, treats and delights inside. The cakes are beautifully baked and you'll find old favourites like red velvet alongside slices of dreamy vanilla cakes. The street also has plenty of specialist shops to peruse so making it a pleasing way to spend a few hours and within ten mins walk of Victoria and Sloane Square tubes. So...I'll meet you down there for a mid morning sweet treat...tomorrow good? ;-)

The cakes look fantastic and the cupcakes are delicious in this cake parlour in Belgravia. My favorite is the banoffee cupcake. You can take away or eat in one of the few small tables inside or outside.
