♡ Peggy Porschen's Nutcracker winter collection 2020! ♡

Good morning Sugarplum fairies♡

A couple days ago, I finished all my assignments for this year, and so decided to celebrate by visiting Peggy Porschen, one of my favourite cafes for winter time!꒰⑅ᵕ༚ᵕ꒱˖♡ Despite the cold weather and harsh wind, we still ended up having a lot of fun, and enjoying the gorgeous décor and treats Peggy's had to offer.

Upon arrival, my friends and I were so in love with the nutcracker themed entrance and wreath! I recently saw a gorgeous pink wreath outside Jenny Packham's London Flagship Boutique that was so perfect, but Peggy's wreath may be even more beautiful...

I also attempted to put together a Clara inspired outfit..! I had originally planned on wearing something to emulate The Sugarplum Fairy, but as it was so cold, my original dress choice wouldn't have been warm enough~ ꒰⑅ˊ͈ ˙̫ ˋ͈⑅꒱ I was however, more than happy to wear this Lodispotto flowery op which I just purchased!♡

Dress: Lodispotto, Ribbon: Lodispotto, Necklace: Ted Baker, Bracelet: Ted Baker, Bag: Samantha Vega, Charm: Ladureé, Boots: offbrand

How beautiful is this ornamental branch display, next to the gorgeous sugar cookies and gingerbread? The candy cane and Christmas tree treats are so perfect...

The other festive items include beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy and Jolly Gingerbread cupcakes, as well as the Baileys & chocolate cake!.⑅*♡ I had already decided that I wanted to try the Sugar Plum Fairy cupcake, however if I visit again whilst this menu is available, I'd love to try the Baileys & chocolate ꒰♡ˊ͈ ु꒳ ूˋ͈꒱

The cupcake I chose...! How beautiful is this baby pink box? 

Due to the current restrictions, Peggy's had to cancel their table bookings, and are currently only available for takeaway. ꒰⁎′̥̥̥ ⌑ ‵̥̥̥ ꒱ Despite this, I'm happy to have still tried out takeaway from Peggy's, as I would have never thought to do so before!

The 'Sugar Plum Fairy' cupcake is described as being 'spiced buttermilk, spiced plum jam and plum meringue buttercream with ballet sugar shoes, snowflakes and sugar pearls' 

Although I don't usually go for plum flavour items, I was excited to try this one, as I find fruit jams so delicious, and thought perhaps the plum flavour would be a nice change.

The buttercream icing certainly did taste like meringue, however I couldn't detect much plum in it~ the icing was light and fluffy, which was a lovely contrast to the slightly spiced gingerbread sponge, which I adored! The plum jam in the centre of the cupcake was absolutely delectable, and combined with the sponge was perfect ♡

My sweet friend Sian tried the 'Jolly Gingerbread' cupcake, which is described as 'gingerbread sponge and lemon cream cheese frosting, with a sugar gingerbread character, snowflake and chocolate pearl' ꒰´꒳`∗꒱ According to her, it was delicious! Although neither of us are gingerbread fans, we still found these festive cupcakes so tasty and cute.

Our trip to Peggy's was so lovely!♡ I had such a wonderful time wandering around the shops on our way there, taking cute photos and admiring the festive décor outside various hotels and restaurants. It's been difficult trying to get into the holiday spirit this year, but I'm so grateful to have beautiful cafes like this I can visit, even if its just for takeaway or to admire!

I'm wishing everyone a wonderful day, and hope that you're safe and well during these difficult times.
