Edible Photo Frosting & Photo Cake Toppers — Custom Made To Order

Custom Decorating Brownies At Home Guide

Decorating Brownies

While my friend Deb was visiting, we made brownies and decided to custom decorate the brownies using melted white chocolate – easy and yum! I like using melted white chocolate, the topper sets as soon as the white chocolate dries and is simpler to transport.

To begin, melt the chocolate according to the packaging. We used Nestle white chocolate morsels, which are available at any supermarket. Follow the direction on the packaging. Since our microwave did not allow us to lower the power, we used the double-boiler and followed these instructions  exactly for melting white chocolate and it worked perfectly.

Once the white chocolate is melted spread the melted chocolate on the brownie – or any cookie you are want to decorate.

Building Specialty Cakes with YouCake Prints

All of our cakes are special, but these cakes get the term “specialty cakes” because of the “irregular” edible prints that they inspired for sculpted cakes.

There is a tremendous opportunity to tell your story visually on cakes. For example, when you turn fifty – a todo list list becomes extra sweet, such as in this cake: First,  “Remind Mano to file the paper for the generator” and end by “rocking the next 50 years!”

ToDo List Sculpted Cake


At work, keep the office theme…Easel  and Post it Notes work great!

Great for wedding or anniversary cakes…make a film strip of images

For irregular prints, contact us 212-358-779 or email us for a quote. Pricing depends on the project and includes the print and if needed design work and set up fee for multiple images. We make sure you will have a show-stopper!


Celebrating Our Pets – Pet Parties

YouCake Pet Party Cakes, pet parties, celebrating pets

Pet Party-celebrating your pets! Pets are, after all, the center of every party – they should absolutely be the topping on the cake!

Pet Party-celebrating your pet!

Pet love, it cannot be denied! It is said that love is a four “legged” word. They are our best friend and confidant. There can be judgement, but nothing a bowl of food won’t fix. When it is time to celebrate our pet love, a good celebration option is to get their cute mug on a cake or dessert. Since we are, after all throwing the shin-dig, the dessert and best-pet-topper is for the two-legged to enjoy.

In fact, my very first “YouCake” was a birthday cake with my dog Francis. The photo above is what my friends served on a carvel cake for my 30th birthday.  Francis was just a pup at the time. I was so surprised and it still makes me happy thinking about it.

We’re very pleased with the quality of our order.
I’ll recommend you. Thanks.—Gardena, CA

I purchased an edible image for my boss’ retirement party (no pressure there!) fromYouCake. I had NO IDEA what I was doing but they were very helpful. The product I received was exactly as described, high quality and packaged very nicely. I would also like to mention that it was shipped and delivered very promptly. In addition to being such a great quality product, the customer service I received was remarkable. They followed up with me on email to let me know the status of my order every step of the way. It really took a lot of stress off me and our timeline. I will definitely use them again!—Tavares, Florida

 Great service and attention to detail that improved my request.—Auburn Twp, Ohio 44023


It looked really nice….

I had the cake displayed on one corner of the theater during my nephew’s show last night, balloons on the side…. People took pictures. THE CELEBRANT AMAZED that I was able to do that for his birthday.—L, HI

I was having a meltdown as had to find custom cookies delivered to me in 2 days and boy did Carolyn deliver!!
The results were perfection.. I couldn’t have been happier.
I have already recommended YouCake to friends and will keep doing so, and will definitely use again in the future! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!— NYC
Just wanted to reach out again and thank you for your help with the cookies for my father’s birthday.  They were adorable and were a big hit at the party.  Thanks for creating them, but more importantly, for making the delivery process so seamless.—AS
The cake topper was a huge hit! Thanks so much for helping me get this together so quickly. SJ
I recently ordered a cake topper from you and I wanted to say a big thanks. The image was great. Easy to use and it was the hit of the party! It was a picture of my husband for his 40th B-day and he loved it. It was a surprise and it worked great. I just wanted to say thanks and hopefully let others know how great your product was!—BB


I just wanted to you let you know that the jumbo cupcakes were a huge hit! Your team did a wonderful job with these. Thank you so much. NM

Thank you so much for processing our order so quickly last night. The image gave the right ‘punch’ for the presentation of the cupcakes. My boy was also really amused and thrilled with it. Thank you so much! R

Giving YouCake a rush order they not only were able to produce it, but they did do with care and it came out beyond my expectations.—V.A.

Loving your work—CT

Subject: Cupcake toppers
So the cupcake toppers are a success with Sophie! She loved it and they are allergy free for her. I will be talking this up with friends, especially many with food allergies. Thank you again for the samples. If you have something you would like me to specifically post to my wall with a link, I would be happy to do so 🙂 Just LMK! – CBY

“I just wanted to come back and thank you so very much for the wonderful product. The toppers arrived the other day, in excellent condition, and far exceed my expectations. The colors are bright and clear and simply THE BEST topper of its kind that I have seen.  I make these particular cupcakes every year and the product I ordered last year was not even CLOSE to yours. The colors were bleeding and the images were not very sharp at all.  Some of the images had run off the side of the pre-formed toppers as well. I had to do a lot of trimming.    I’m so glad to have found you and am very happy to have a source to produce great toppers. Also, your friendly and FAST service are fantastic along with the great communication.  Thank you!  I can’t wait to bring these to my event and see the reaction! :) ”

My wife’s jaw literally dropped when she saw our cake! I’m recommending Youcake to everyone I know!

Dear YouCake,
We were so pleased with the cake—and as I said before—it was the hit of the party. This is a wonderful project, so keep at it!

I’ve now ordered two YouCakes for myself and seen other’s – our son’s wedding reception – all were terrific but the wedding cake was fabulous! I love being able to include text and backgrounds. On one, I put a poem. Bravo.
