If you do not know Peggy Porschen, she studied her Pastry course at Le Cordon Bleu, London before opening her own. She has also published a books "Romantic Cakes" and "Pretty Party Cakes". She also created some beautiful pieces for celebrities like Elton John's wife, Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. Not only that, her masterpiece have been featured in various magazines too.
You must be thinking how does she relate to what I am going on about...Because here I am, thinking of taking up a Patisserie course from Le Cordon Bleu. So I would have proper fundamentals and therefore hopefully would be on my way to becoming my own Pastry Chef.
Here are some of her masterpiece :)
