miss b loves ........Peggy Porschen's festive treats and some stylish decorations.

I'm just back home after spending a couple of days in London ......amazing Christmas lights, exquisite and creative window displays....a visit to the V&A 'Pearls' exhibition and ......Christmas shopping (of course!)

I knew there would be plenty of festive sweet treats at Peggy Porschen's boutique bakery and I couldn't resist a visit before starting my shopping ........ 

The windows had been hand-painted with cute festive scenes and characters.......

.... and inside, as expected, there were some very special cupcakes .....

Festive Chocolate, Red Velvet Snowman,
 Sticky  Toffee, Festive Vanilla,  Sugar Plum

.....and what did I choose?......

Lightly spiced gingerbread sponge with
 a lemon cream cheese frosting

 and a mini gingerbread man

 ... and how could I resist this little reindeer biscuit.....

Intricately iced hanging cookies adorned the Christmas tree too ......

......and I can tell you that everything tastes as good as it looks! Such attention to detail......even the receipts are pink!

No wonder Peggy Porschen has so many fans!

Before heading back to the tube station, I stopped to admire some very stylish decorations...

A detour down Pavilion Road, off Sloane Street.....

What a lovely door wreath

Just time for a quick cappuccino and a cookie at Cocomaya before heading over to Regent Street. 

Please join me next time ......to see London all dressed up for Christmas......

  1. Gorgeous photos. I used to love walking through london just admiring the decorations, the wreaths and the window boxes. Love that bakery - how beautiful the windows are! Love that gnome in particular, I remember how that book swept the world back in the late 80's, it's probably due for a revival. Thanks for the lovely Christmassy post xx

  2. London is wonderful when is dressed up for Christmas, And that place-they I didn't know- looks really cute!

  4. I'm going to town on Thursday, may have to grab one of those cupcakes! x

  5. Hi Miss B! I just want to go to Peggy Porschen now, it looks fantastic! Next time I am in London (and I really hope soon), I have to go there. The cupcakes are so adorable, I like your choice, maybe I would have had the Xmas tree, also the reindeer biscuit is so sweet. Have a lovely week ahead dear, kisses! xo

  6. elle a l'air trop mignonne cette boutique !


  7. Yes, I'm taking up that offer to join you around London! Because I live and work here, I very rarely look at it in wondering and wandering touristy eyes. Was in Regent St 2 weeks ago, after 2 years or so, and it felt and looked so festive it reminded me of my first Christmas here. Looking forward to your next set of photos x

  8. Thank you, thank you for this post! I am off to London next THursday and I will try to visit as well! These cupcakes look awesome! --- You are so right with your comment on my blog - these Ladies look much more stylish! Christa

  10. I love pearls, work near the V&A, and still haven't been to the exhibition! Was it wonderful?

    Glad you had a great weekend! I travelled the other way, to Manchester to celebrate a dear friend's 30th. It was magical, and I am very glad to be home!


  11. Yum! You had a very sweet time. Sorry, could resist that bad pun. It looks amazing and had my mouth watering. I look forward to your tour of the decorations. It's my favorite time of year. xo

  12. Ahhhh Miss B! Peggy Porschen never ceases to amaze me. That gingerbread cupcake and reindeer cookie look so good. Her details floor me each and every time. I'm impressed with her windows! The little cupcakes! So beautiful. Glad you went again around holiday so I could see it. I remember you going before. London really looks beautiful for the holidays. Glad you enjoyed yourself. I want to thank you for providing those two links: Bloomburys and Beas. I remember them now!!! And I SEE the difference. That's why I like a history of blog posts, because you can always use them as reference. Thanks for noting them in your comment. It will help me and others. THANKS!!! :D
