Cupcakes are a dime a dozen, so stumbling upon a really good one is an important find. When Plato Putas inhaled a mini-cake that was clearly blog worthy, we knew it was something we absolutely had to share.

We Take the Cake is a small bakery operating with a skimpy staff of five out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Each gourmet item, from bundt cakes to wedding cakes, are handmade, hand-decorated and wrapped up in the most delightful retro-inspired pink and green packaging.


A box of eight enormous, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes ($52) arrived at the office, still frozen. That’s right, We Take the Cake delivers anywhere in the U.S. and is one of the most popular mail-order cake companies around. After a few impatient hours of de-thawing, these edible baked goodies where ready to be devoured. You’d think cupcakes which traveled over a 1,000 miles would somehow taste like the back seat of FedEx truck, but these were far from it. They were incredible—moist, soft and rich in flavor. Plus the icing was completely intact and gorgeous to look at. Each cupcake was carefully iced with a large flower blossom. We Take the Cake has a reputation for intricate, whimsical decorating.

But we’re not the only ones who love We Take the Cake. In 2004, their Key Lime Bundt Cake put the big “O” in Oprah when it was chosen as one of her favorite things. Check the video to see what all the hype is about, believe us, you’re gonna want to place an order too.
