Baby shower cakes are always fun to make, and they can vary widely in style, color, and theme. Here’s one we did a few weeks ago where they wanted it classy and elegant, but still clearly for a baby shower. We adorned the cake with edible, hand-made whimsical flowers and topped the whole thing with hand-made, edible baby sneakers. Who doesn’t love baby shoes?!
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!
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.
Happy 5th Birthday, Camryn!
Ok, it’s official (…well, not really). The most popular theme for a 1st birthday party in 2012 is Mickey or Minnie Mouse! And while it’s easy to recreate a design over and over, we also love when people bring us a new design to try!
Last weekend, we made TWO Minnie Mouse cakes! The first one was based on the cake with the edible convertible and Minnie Mouse topper, but they wanted to replace the car with a set of ears and a bow. Done!
Another of my daughter’s friends has turned 1! Jude’s parents are big Beatles fans (hence his name) so they threw him a Yellow Submarine-themed 1st birthday party. How fun and adorable!
We’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately because September and October are big months for us! But right in the middle of September, Mel’s baby girl turned 1 so we have to share a few photos.
We went with a rainbow themed party because color makes Mel happy, and Mikaela isn’t old enough to express any opinions yet. Although, we’re pretty sure she enjoyed herself. *wink*
Here’s the cake table set-up with Mikaela’s personalized birthday banner, cookie favors, goodie bags, and of course the cake!
We love repeat customers! In July, Sara asked us to make her daughter’s 1st birthday cake – a Mickey Mouse cake and cupcakes. The month of August brings her Mom’s birthday so she asked us to create a sunflower cake.
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*
In any event, the cake was fun to make! They gave us free reign to decorate it however we pleased. And we gave them this tantalizing sneak peek on Facebook.
We’ve been seeing a LOOOOOOT of Mickey Mouse birthday cakes lately. And, while we love Mickey, we were thrilled when Natasa asked for a Minnie Mouse cake! Alright! We’re talking sweet, girly, polka dots, bows, and PINK!
