ABOUT

Classic Cakes began in the Spring of 1983 in Brentwood, Tennessee. I had eaten too many wedding cakes that were nice to look at, but unfortunately, practically inedible. Friends jokingly called it the 'cardboard and Crisco syndrome'. Wondering why the visual and culinary aspects of a wedding cake could not co-exist, it became a priority to create a wedding cake that was not only beautiful, but delicious. I made it my mission to create original cake and icing recipes; experimenting with flavors, textures, and ingredients until the perfect combinations were achieved. Over 30 years and still going strong!
