Meet Your Chef


PHS Dessert Bar was created by Chef Yvonne Ivy, a pastry chef and mom of four who loves the art of celebrating. She knew the importance of staying connected and wanted to create something that was spectacular! Our Celebration + BOX’s, Cake + JAR’s, and Carte Blanche cakes are a staple for any celebration. The result is a brand that delivers a seamless, less time-consuming approach to celebrating you and your loved ones.

We specialize in milestones celebrations such as weddings, birthdays, and baby showers. Located in Chicago, and proudly offering nationwide shipping.
