Why rent a Display cake?

With the economy still recovering why would you buy  a 5 tier, or more wedding cake? Rent it instead! back up with sheet cakes and save up to 1000.00. this beautiful cake rented for $100.00 the sheet cakes were 1.75 a slice for a one layer cake and everyone was happy. this rental cake will rent for $125.00 starting in January. Book it today to insure the $100.00 pricing. Sheet cakes will be $2.00 a slice starting in January and will be two layer. We are phasing out the one layer cakes. We are in the process of remaking all rental cakes so that all have slots in the back for real cake to be inserted. We still offer reasonable wedding cakes, custom special occasion cakes, and grooms cakes. please visit our website for more info on pricing.

Pear Chi Spice Galettes and Apple Chai Spice Galettes.

This little Rustic pies take no time at all. You can cheat if you cannot make good pie dough. This one has sliced Red pears, and Bartlet pears, I mixed sugar about 1/2 cup to some chai spice tossed the pears in that then I placed them in the middle of the rolled out pie dough and dotted it with about 10 small slices of salted butter. I  folded up the edges of the pie dough and washed them with a egg wash. Baked at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes and OH MY GOODNESS! The spice was a perfect complement to the pears I chose with just enough sweet and spice. Enjoy!

 Repeat with Apple only mix in half the sugar with brown sugar and chi spice. Repeat everything else. Both were so good!

I might be stuck on these for awhile. I bet you could use agave nectar as well to lower the sugar content. Happy Baking!

Wedding Cake Trends in The Sunday Paper today

Hi Everyone,
We are excited about a article in the Tennessean today, Our company was featured as one of the companies talking about wedding cake trends in Tennessee. I wanted to share with you two cakes photo's that were not clearly labeled for the photographers work, and one photo that is ours and not the French Confection in the online article the first comes from Myrick Studios , and the second comes from Evan Baines. I always try to get proper photo credits to the talent behind the photo's. So this is a correction on my part to get proper credit to the photographers. We were delighted that they showed us working on a Rental display cake from our home as well. Something I hope picks up in the south due to weddings still being very large. 200 to 250 people is still very common in this economy, cakes that serve that many people can very expensive at best to quote the competitors  pricing at $5.00 a slice and $6.00 a slice making a cake $1250.00 to $1500.00. Yes you can get a 3 tiered cake for 100 people for $600.00, but with my cakes you can have 5 to 6 tiers. Why settle. Rent your display cake today. For traditional cake needs our prices start at $4.25 a slice for budget, $4.50 to $6.90 a slice for designer and $7.00 a slice for custom work based on 100 servings of cake. We have current specials running as well if you book before the 17th of February. Just ask us for the deal.
