From the outside in, Peggy Porschen is sweetness unlimited. The pastel pink parlour exterior gives a hint of what’s to come inside this luxury cake shop. The cakes on offer are designed with creativity, fantasy and opulence in mind. While their cupcakes are spectacular, it’s the celebration cakes that we want to talk about. Each cake is designed with a story to tell, and so you can expect fantastical adornments on the outside and sumptuous flavour on the inside.
Light Bites – Maître Choux – Kensington & Soho
Three locations across Kensington and Soho mean that you can always pop in to visit this specialist purveyor of eclairs.

Gift boxes are perfect for sharing, or just pop in for a light as a feather pick me up while you’re on the go.
Sharing Treats – Cutter & Squidge – Soho
Sometimes, the great thing about cakes is sharing them. And there’s no easier way to do this than with a sharing platter of mini treats. This is why Cutter & Squidge have soared in popularity with their signature product, the Biskie. This is a dessert sandwich that’s half cake and half cookie filled with deliciously flavoured cream. There are also full cakes and brownies, shortbreads, and cupcakes on offer. If you can’t swing by, simply order an afternoon tea delivery!
Elegant Cupcakes – Primrose Bakery – Primrose Hill
Head here for the original trailblazing purveyor of cupcakes. The Primrose bakery was founded in 2004 and is still the place to go for pretty as a picture cupcakes. Whether you want to celebrate with a box or just indulge in one, the cupcake menu is mouthwatering. All cupcakes are baked fresh and with a daily special in addition to the standard flavours. So if your heart is set on chocolate marshmallow, make sure you visit on a Thursday!
