Peboryon Cakes

Crowlas and Ludgvan W I was treated to a zoom meeting and demonstration by Christine and Phil Jensen of the famous Peboryon Extreme Cake Makers. Peboryon, Cornish for Bakers, makes innovative cake creations which are famous across the globe. It all started when Christine recalled the wonderful memory of her 4th birthday cake and decided to be creative for her own children’s’ birthday cakes. Despite a few errors Christine continued and over the years, gained expertise from cake classes and college courses in patisserie and confectionery. She won professional cake show competitions and international awards. Peboryon became famous and its demand for extreme cakes. As the business grew Phil joined Christine to add his expertise. Levitating cakes, a 6ft replica of Stonehenge, a giant signpost or a baby hippo relaxing on a sun lounger are some of their famous creations. As well as the design, a variety of flavours is also important. As Christine said “Cake is often the last thing eaten at an occasion and we want people to remember the taste”

From their own kitchen Christine and Phil demonstrated to us how to make Italian Meringue Buttercream. A buttercream which tastes delicious, is far less sickly and has far less calories. Throughout the demonstration they explained the method in detail and willingly answered members questions. A fun, informative evening enjoyed by all. You can read more about Peboryon HERE
