At Ph.D.-serts, we take our cakes seriously – especially wedding cakes! When you contact us about our wedding cakes, here’s the process we go through:
1. We sit down with the bride and groom to design your wedding cake from the inside out. This means, we bring cake & filling samples – yay! And we pick your brain to find out what kind of style, mood, theme describes you and your wedding. By the time we finish our initial meeting, you will leave with a fully designed wedding cake.
2. We sketch out the cake and send the sketch and wedding cake order form to you for review. You can review it on your own time and discuss the details, without the pressure of us sitting there next to you.
3. You return a signed copy of the order form with a $100 deposit to hold the date of your big day.
4. Two weeks before your wedding, we’ll contact you again to make sure you still like the cake we’ve designed. We also get a final head-count to ensure that you’ll have enough cake to feed everyone at the reception. At this time, the remaining balance of your cake is due.
5. The week of the wedding, we get to work creating your dream cake! We work with your reception venue to set up a delivery time and deliver the cake before any of your guests arrive. We will leave the cake table “picture ready” so that is the last thing you have to worry about!
Super hero-themed birthday parties are so IN! We’ve been dying to try our hands on a super hero cake, and the opportunity finally arrived when Kenneth’s Mom (aka Katy at Birdie Baby Boutique) asked us to make his cake. Yes!
Camryn decided to celebrate her 5th birthday with a Garden Tea Party so we created a girly, elegant cake for her. The cake was iced in light blue buttercream with buttercream grass, leaves & stems. The flowers themselves were made of fondant, and we topped the whole thing with a miniature edible tea set.
This week we had the honor of creating a fun and unique cake for Jared’s Bar Mitzvah. The Bar Mitzvah was held at MOSI in Tampa, FL where the guests would be surrounded by dinosaur museum artifacts and have access to a Jurassic Park motion simulator! Honestly, the party looked like it was going to be a blast – we were bummed to have to leave after delivering the cake! *wink*
But the cake was fun to make too. We iced the cake in green buttercream and airbrushed it with shades of yellows, greens, and browns to add depth and make it – well, ugly! Then we added hand-cut edible paper dinosaur shapes and lots of buttercream “greenery.” At the party, we added Jared’s favorite dinosaur figurines for the full come-to-life, 3-D effect! And what dinosaur cake is complete without a volcano overflowing with lava!?
The flavors they chose? Red velvet cake with cream cheese filling (for the volcano, of course), chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling, and vanilla cake with buttercream filling. Scrumptious!
Last weekend, we had the honor of making a luau-themed cake for an office family picnic. The office hosting the get-together happened to be Mel’s husband’s office…but that’s just a minor detail. *wink*
“No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks…School’s out for summer!”
-Schools Out by Alice Cooper
Yes, school’s out! The kids are on the loose in the neighborhood. But before they left the classroom, the teachers probably tried to teach them one last thing before their brains turned to much over the vacation.
During the last week of school at Burney Elementary School in Plant City, the children celebrated the opening of a brand new butterfly garden on school grounds! And to make the celebration just a little bit sweeter, we made butterfly cookies for the students.
We can’t wait to hear what kinds of butterflies the students see when they return to school in the Fall!
