Vibrant Green, Pink, and Orange Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Renaissance Vinoy
We chose The Artistic Whisk at the suggestion of our wedding planner, and they did not disappoint! We are not really cake people, so we wanted to keep it minimal and focus on having a gorgeous dessert bar with lots of different options.
For example, we knew we needed to incorporate cannolis, and we also had creme brûlée, cake pops, macarons, and this incredible chocolate peanut butter crisp brownie. It was amazing!
I wanted the cake design to echo the gold leaf accents of the overall wedding decor and to be subtle and allow the incredible flower arrangement around the dessert bar to really pop. The most important detail of the cake was the cake topper of our dog, Khaleesi. We commissioned it from an artist on Etsy, and she really nailed it!
Whimsical Purple Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood
The cake was an opportunity to bring together all of the color and style of the wedding into a single element. We both agreed we loved hand-painted cakes pretty quickly. They are romantic, bold, and unique. We also wanted to include some sugar flowers for dimension and as little joyful confections. While we didn’t go into the tasting knowing exactly what flavors we wanted, we quickly zeroed in on our nostalgic sides. Our two flavors were orange creamsicle and chocolate strawberry. They reminded us of our favorite childhood ice cream flavors.
We had the opportunity to try all of the cakes from the various vendors we were considering at The Birchwood’s bridal show. The minute we tasted The Artistic Whisk’s cake we were both transported back to Europe. When we met with Jovana for our tasting, listening to her explain how she bakes using the traditional European style, with natural ingredients, allowing them to sing without being overly sweet, we were sold. She patiently went through every cake flavor and then every inspirational picture we brought in. Then, she drew up a sketch of all the details we asked for and it was perfect. The final product on the day was a breathtaking masterpiece. I couldn’t recommend them more to anyone looking for a traditional cake style in the most creative and modern flavors and adornments.
Elegant Pink Downtown Tampa Wedding | Tampa Marriott Water Street
We selected The Artistic Whisk because we tasted their cake at a bridal show and loved their flavors. We wanted each layer of the cake to be elegant and beautiful using our theme colors. Our flavor selections were almond raspberry and coconut with roasted pineapple.
Vibrant Pink Floral-Filled Downtown Tampa Wedding | The Vault
We actually didn’t have a wedding cake. We had numerous types and flavors of mini desserts. We loved the dessert table concept. My mother is also gluten intolerant, and I wanted to make sure there were gluten-free options available.
We were able to do a typical wedding cake flavor tasting with The Artistic Whisk, which was so fun, and then translate the flavors into mini desserts. We had gluten-free mini mousse, mint chocolate chip petit fours, vanilla mini cupcakes, chocolate mini cupcakes, gluten-free lemon mousse cups with almond meringue crunch, bananas foster trifle cups, apple crumb mini tarts, tiramisu mini tart, and gluten-free strawberry and champagne macarons.
Burgundy Disney-Inspired Clearwater Wedding | Kapok Events
For our wedding cake, we looked for someone who did not just do cookie cutter flavors and also made elegant cakes. We chose bananas foster (my personal favorite) and chocolate and strawberry for my husband who loves chocolate! We chose The Artistic Whisk because we wanted someone who made cakes with original flavors and did them well. It was also important to us that the cake was elegant and affordable.
Spooky Downtown St. Pete Halloween Wedding | Manhattan Casino
Of course, everyone loves cake, but we needed a bakery that was also an artist and could fabricate realistic sharp jagged teeth on a wedding cake.
The Artistic Whisk's cake flavor combinations and the examples of their artistic styles made them an easy choice. It was difficult to choose flavors, so we chose two, blueberry with key lime and hazelnut with espresso. Everything was delicious, but the added gore decor on the cake and desserts really added to the event theme. The teeth turned out fantastic! Our guests couldn't stop commenting on the cake! They were very easy to work with and had no trouble incorporating two severed hands, purchased independently, into the cake base design.
Mauve, Gold, and Navy Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood
I really wanted something that looked very enchanting. We chose The Artistic Whisk after considering seven cake companies because they had the best customer service. They were quick to respond, and their cake tasted the absolute best of the bunch. We had three flavors: strawberries with champagne, chocolate, and blue velvet, (blue velvet was by far the best flavor).
One of the best parts about working with The Artistic Whisk was that they gave us exactly what we wanted. There were no alterations to the photo I sent them, and it looked even better in person. They are an outstanding cake company, and we will definitely be going back for more occasions.
Intimate Coastal Inspired Sea Glass Blue Wedding | Hilton Clearwater Beach
We wanted a bakery that could give us something yummy and that offered some unique flavors! The Artistic Whisk was one of the three vendors that we were able to choose from in our Hilton package. We really loved looking at the cakes they showcased on their website, and they had so many amazing flavors to choose from.
Vibrant Pink and Gold Fairytale Wedding | The Don CeSar
We wanted a wedding bakery that could add a unique touch to our wedding and give guests a taste of Florida.
Since we were looking for a nod to local flavors, we were drawn to the Orange Creamsicle flavor, and it ended up being just as delicious as it sounded. The Artistic Whisk was willing to work with us to completely customize our cake. We had elements of three different inspiration cakes we wanted to include, and Artistic Whisk brought them all together seamlessly.
Intimate St. Pete Beach Rooftop Wedding | Hotel Zamora
The Artistic Whisk was phenomenal. Their cake was so delicious and a gorgeous display!
Burgundy and Gold Downtown St. Pete Rooftop Wedding | Red Mesa Events
Bryan and I both have a major sweet tooth, so we agreed on a more simple cake, but a decadent dessert bar was a must. My aunt retired in 2019 and turned her love of baking into a business. In addition to the confections provided by The Artistic Whisk and Red Mesa Events, we also had three different flavors of truffles provided by Susanna’s Sweet Treats. Needless to say, there was not much left by the end of the night.
Everyone from friends to other vendors all said the same thing “Jovana, the owner, is the best!” As soon as The Artistic Whisk confirmed they were available for our date, that was it. I never even considered another bakery. We chose two cake flavors, Cinnamon Roll and Almond Raspberry, and our dessert bar included Pistachio Macarons, Salted Caramel Macarons, Tiramisu Cups, and Fruit Tartlets.

Size, taste, decor. I have lots of food allergies, so that's what it really came down to, who could accommodate our large guest count and my specific needs.
The décor of the cake from The Artistic Whisk was just gorgeous!
