Velvet Sky Bakery Pays Attention to Detail

By Jake Levin

Jordan Harvey understands what's at stake with his cakes.

The owner and chief cake designer at Velvet Sky Bakery in Jenkintown, Pa. knows that the cake he makes will last a lifetime in pictures and memories, which is why he and his staff pays the utmost attention to detail on every single cake they make.

"We work really hard to provide the best and most fresh product available, we pay close attention to detail and really try to listen to our clients to make sure they are getting exactly what they want," Harvey said.

Since purchasing the business as a cupcake shop six years ago, business has tripled for Harvey and Co. The group is known for not only its wedding cakes, but delicacies for all sorts of other events, too.

Harvey had the opportunity to work in the restaurant industry for many years before deciding to settle into baking. He'd grown up eating many adventurous foods, so specializing came quite easy.

Drawing from his past experiences, namely the love of trying new things, Harvey got to work on a menu with many new and interesting flavors. Among the unique flavors are a caprese cupcake, which is a tomato cake with basil butter cream and a reduced balsamic drizzle, as well as a lavender cake made with honey lemon butter cream.

Harvey lists his favorite as the Thai tea cake, a flavor inspired by his brother.

"My brother loves Southeast Asian cuisine and I invented the flavor for his wedding," Harvey said.

The Velvet Sky Bakery has a website full of galleries of its goods, The bakery is open Tuesday-Thursday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Velvety Sky Bakery is closed on Mondays.
