Peggy Porschen review
Peggy Porschen has had a rather enchanting Halloween makeover in the lead up to the best holiday of the year – in my opinion anyway, Halloween is fabulous.
Still pretty and perfect in pink, the celebrated cake shop’s décor features some slight adjustments, with pastel pumpkins, cutesy bat bunting and sugar skull cookies aplenty temporarily garnishing its interior.
I paid a visit one morning to their quaint Belgravia bakery to sample some of the exciting new seasonal menu, absolutely delighted by the Halloween and Autumnal overhaul that welcomed me on arrival.
Peggy Porschen’s well-known floral garland door frame was emblazoned with pastel pumpkins, golden skulls and painted broomsticks, nestled amidst the beautiful and vibrant kaleidoscope of coloured flowers woven into the frame.
Each table had its own munchkin pumpkin and the shop had the prettiest (not overly eerie in all honesty) and most welcoming feel as expected – can you even make somewhere so pretty in any way scary?
So, what did I think of the Peggy Porschen Halloween collection?
Sitting inside, I chose a cappuccino which was embellished with cutesy sugar skull shaped topping and a spiced pumpkin cupcake. Although a tad on the expensive side, I must admit this handmade cupcake was delicious, with a fluffy spiced sponge and delicious cinnamon cream cheese frosting – which proved a little too indulgent in the end.
Peggy Porschen are known for their picturesque products and décor, and the Halloween spiced pumpkin cupcake was no exception, with an edible rose gold sugar skull with floral decal.
Teamed with freshly brewed coffee, it is certainly a delicious morning or lunchtime pick-me-up – and is a fabulous date idea if you are looking for something a little different.
It is definitely one of the most Instagramable spots in London. I will certainly be back to revisit their exclusive products this festive season and perhaps even for a little morning time treat again in the meantime…
