Here’s a beautiful wedding cake we had the honor of creating a few weeks ago. We sat down with the bride and groom months ago to design the cake, and Vanessa, the bride, had great vision!
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!
We decorated a very special birthday cake this week. Well, all our cakes are special in their own way, but this one stood out because this is the 3rd cake we’ve made for this family.
Vivian’s birthday was quickly approaching and she was browsing our website with her Mom. Vivian said, “Mom, there’s Kyle’s cake (the Graffiti cake under “Graduations”) and there’s Ava’s cake. I’m the only one without a cake on their website!”
Well, that just won’t do! Vivian’s only request for her birthday cake was that it include their family pets – an American Bulldog and a Pug. No problem!
We’ve been doing a lot of cookies lately, but we’ve been very bad about posting them on the blog. So, today, let’s do a little cookie catch-up!
By the way, did you know that a percentage of the proceeds from all cookie orders in 2012 will be donated to the Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure??? Yes-siree! Of course, you can always make a donation without placing an order but you might as well get some cookies out of the deal too, right?!
What would cookies for a man turning 39 years old who loves the University of Florida Gators, the beach, and surfing look like? Like these, of course!

Earlier in the month, Rebecca asked us to create a sparkly cake for her daughters’ birthday party. The theme would be enchanted forest fairies and the colors were pink and purple. So, with Rebecca’s help, we designed this cake:
We topped it with a spray of ruffled polka dots that read “H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y” and a couple of elegant daisies.
The sides of the cake were adorned with edible numbers and name banners for the birthday girls, Reese & Hadley. And the entire cake was very, very sparkly!
Check out that sparkle! Every little girl’s dream!
Rebecca also needed some cupcakes for Reese to share with her class at school. Two of Reese’s favorite things right now are the color purple and rainbow sprinkles. And, so, these cupcakes were created:
And, as party favors, we created yellow and green glittery sugar cookies. The girls at the party received the yellow ones, which were mounted on lollipop sticks and looked like fairy wands. The boys received the green sparkly ones without the sticks (because we all know the boys would use them as weapons instead of magical wands).
Today is Day 2 of cake catch-up week! Here’s a cake created for a fun bat mitzvah party in Gainesville, FL.
