"A PARTY WITHOUT CAKE,
IS JUST A MEETING."
At Patty's Cakes of Vero Beach we design your special occasion cake together.
Then I take your ideas and desires and create a one-of-a- kind design that is uniquely yours.
When I was about 10 years old I would take orders from neighbors and bake cream puffs in my mother's kitchen and deliver the pasteries.
After a lot of messy kitchens and missing ingredients my mother decided that I could purchase my own ingredients and clean the kitchen.
Mom always called (with pride) my creations "Patty's Cakes". So in honor of my mother, who taught me so much more than how to bake, Patty's Cakes of Vero Beach was introduced in 2016.
I work hard to maintain the excellence that my mother would have expected. Your cake will have a truly homemade taste with a designer twist!
Elegant Almond Cake is everyone’s favorite. Its moist almond flavor and delicate almond butter cream frosting is perfect for wedding cakes and sure to please crowds of any size. This cake can also be made with amaretto for a more mature crowd.
Midnight Chocolate Cake is a chocolate lovers dream! This decadent deep moist chocolate is often filled with whipped cream or dark chocolate ganache.
Very Vanilla Cake is not any old boring vanilla recipe. This celebratory cake is over the top pure vanilla with yummy vanilla butter cream frosting. Definitely for the purist and for wedding cakes.
Red Velvet Cake is like a rock star- people swoon over it. Shocking red with a hint of chocolate this cake seems all flash. What warrants such attention? Is it the moist cake or the cream cheese frosting? You be the judge!
Pecan Carrot Cake is now one of my favorites. Before I found this recipe, I wasn’t a fan of carrot cake. I practically had to bribe my 89-year-old neighbor for this recipe. It’s moist, pecan nutty and delicious!
Lemon Blossom Cake: is a delicious creamy cake that has just the right amount of fresh lemon flavor plus the lightness of a chiffon cake. I usually make it with lots of layers filled with lemon flavored frosting often “Naked” on the side or can be frosted It’s fresh, light and creamy. This cake also make a unique wedding cake that all will enjoy
Damn Good Chocolate Cake is utterly decadent served and it is also versatile. It makes wonderful cupcakes as well and an elegant birthday cake. The sour cream and chocolate chips make it moist and it can be topped with vanilla, chocolate frosting or ganache. It can be filled with cherries, whipped cream or more frosting. Whatever, this cake is always ready for a party!
Fresh Strawberry filled Vanilla Cake hardly describes this wonderful cake. I bake a traditional moist vanilla cake and cover each layer (while warm) with a homemade strawberry syrup Then while the cake is chilling I add a few tablespoons of crushed fresh strawberries to the butter cream frosting. To assemble I frost each layer then add a layer of fresh sliced strawberries scrape the sides for the “naked” cake look and decorate. Yum! This is also a popular wedding cake!
Crazy for Coconut Cake is the coconut lovers dream! It start with six layers of coconut flavored cake; then each layer is topped with coconut custard,whipped cream filling. Then it is topped with a butter cream, whipped cream frosting and covered with sweetened flaky coconut. It's creamy and delicious!
Rum, Rum & more Rum Cake is simple. If you like rum and you like cake you have it “made in the shade” with this cake. This moist yellow cake is brushed with a Jamaican rum syrup as soon as it comes from the oven. Then several times as it cools. It is then refrigerated so that the rum does not settle on the bottom of each layer. The buttercream frosting is flavored with rum extract. Oh My!
Glutton Free Chocolate Cake: is not your usual flourless chocolate! It is a chiffon chocolate cake that is lighter than air. Cover each light layer with rich chocolate ganache or whipped cream and frost with a light chocolate buttercream and this cake is often requested whether glutton free is needed or not. I've even made custom wedding cake with this recipe.
Rolled Custom Cakes (serving) 12-14
Glutton free Chocolate Cake Roll is filled with whipped cream and covered with ganache then decorated for a traditional “Buche Noel”. When decorated, this can be the ultimate Christmas cake.
Pumpkin Cake Roll: a is light chiffon pumpkin cake filled cream cheese frosting rolled and cover with pecans. A wonderful addition to Thanksgiving dinner.
A Note about:
Chocolate Ganache is a French masterpiece. It’s easy to make with heavy whipping cream and chocolate and a little flavoring. It’s the quality of the chocolate and the pure extract and/or alcohol flavoring the makes the difference.
