Cake Studio



We're excited you decided to visit us. Platinum Cake Designs (PCD) is an artisanal, custom cake business operating in a private cake studio located in Decatur, Georgia and serves the Atlanta metro area. We proudly design each cake and dessert to capture our client's unique style and taste. All our cakes and desserts are made by hand using high quality and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We make all our desserts fresh to order. PCD also makes all our decorations by hand with time and care. We specialize in custom decorated cakes, and we also offer custom cookies, cake pops, cupcakes, and cake truffles. We want to translate your unique style and taste into a beautiful and delicious piece of edible art. We'd love to be a part of your special event and make your memories sweeter.



Chef Nevia

Pastry Chef Nevia Giles is the owner and cake artist of PCD. She has always had a passion for baking and cake decorating (and a sweet tooth). This passion led her to start Platinum Cake Designs in 2015. At a young age, her mother involved Nevia and her siblings in the kitchen. Her mother also encouraged her kids to be imaginative outside the kitchen through sewing, drawing, woodworking, and gardening. Nevia found baking to be an ideal way to show her love to her friends and family and express her creativity. Nevia continued to bake for her friends while pursuing her Business degree at Boston University. ​ The catalyst for starting PCD came when Nevia was given the opportunity to make her sister's wedding cake. The cake was a hit and most importantly her sister loved it. Nevia wanted to share her love and creativity on a larger scale. Fast forward a few years, Nevia decided to leave the utility and consulting industries after 13 years, and turn her long-term hobby into a career. She enrolled in the Pastry and Baking program at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. After graduating, she came back to Atlanta and started PCD.
