#1 BellaCake Co. - Valdosta, GA

We're Interviewing: Stacy, The Owner of BellaCake Co.

About Stacy & The Business!

I’m a self-taught cake artist. I actually consider myself a baker more than I do a decorator as I put all of my heart into the flavor of my cakes. I went to university and earned 2 business degrees, but discovered I love baking much more. I started baking professionally ten years ago and have never looked back. BellaCake Company is the culmination of hundreds of hours of perfecting my recipes and decorating cakes.


What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors? Is there a favorite or “most popular” among clients?

My favorite cake is Dominican cake, but I would say my most requested cake flavor is The One. It’s a rich yellow cake with raspberry filling and an almond buttercream. I have been told by many couples that it is hands-down the best cake ever. Whenever it’s presented at a tasting the couple always says “this is the one.” That’s actually how it got its name.


Do you deliver?

I deliver to Valdosta, Ga and all the surrounding counties. I actually strongly recommend that all wedding cakes be delivered.


Stacy, can you show us some photos?


How big (or small) can you create cakes?

I have created cakes with as many as six tiers and as few a one tier. Since Covid I have noticed that weddings have tend to be smaller and more intimate.


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

I offer cakes for all occasions, cupcakes, and cakepops.


What can you tell me about getting started?

Pre-Covid I offered tastings on Sunday and had just started offering open cake tastings at the start of Covid, but have discontinued as a precaution. I now offer face-time and phone consults to couples.

#2 Zub Cakes - Buford, GA

We're Interviewing: Jen, The Owner of ZubCakes and Bespoke Cake Artist

About Jen & The Business!

I am a licensed and insured home baker located just northeast of Atlanta. I started baking back in 2011 as an attempt to make up for missing my daughter's first birthday due to a hospitalization. That was a horrible first attempt too! I can sit back now and look at that cake and just laugh at how absurd it looked. I did learn something about myself though, I had a raw talent that needed to be finessed and and in 2017, my daughter asked me if I could open a bakery up and name it after her. Hence, ZubCakes was born. Named after my child's nickname, the passion created by my love for her, my cakes driven by my desire to truly make events magical, I can truly declare that I love what I do! I find that my truest passion is carved cakes, but I am also equally skilled in both buttercream and fondant designs. All my cakes are made from scratch recipes, using only real ingredients. I take a lot of pride in the product I put out. It isn't just cake, it is my heart.


What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors? Is there a favorite or “most popular” among clients?

I am boring. I am a sucker for a good vanilla cake. I love being creative with flavors, and have made some interesting ones, such as Watermelon, Earl Grey Lemon, and Honey Lavender. My clients rave about my Red Velvet Mocha or my Maple Chocolate Bacon. I think, I just like to be creative, and flavor profiles are just another way to go. Something unique about my cakes is they are not as sweet as the cake most people are accustomed to. I decrease the sugar in all my recipes and use a Swiss meringue buttercream. This allows you to actually taste the flavors and not feel like you were coated in sugar while doing it. I have a lot of people rave about that fact alone. If you ask my daughter, her favorite is my keto vanilla.


How big (or small) of cakes can you create? Do you deliver?

My smallest cake I offer is 6" and my largest to date served around 150. Because of the size of my kitchen, I can only go so big, there are limitations to being a licensed home baker, most of that is oven, fridge, and counter space. I do deliver, in fact, prefer to do so. I think of delivery as cake insurance. If something happens to that cake in transit and it is in my care, I have the opportunity and obligation to fix it. But if I hand off to a client and something happens, well sometimes it just is not worth the risk. Especially with larger cakes. I deliver to the entire Atlanta and surrounding areas. I have driven as much as three hours to delivery a cake before.


Jen, can you show us some photos?


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

Not that I advertise. If I am specifically asked for an item, I will sometimes agree to is. However, cakes are my preferred medium. Cupcakes are cute and I enjoy a good cupcake tower, so I don't mind them as much. But I hate making cookies and cake pops. I try to refer people out to vented bakers who love making those items. I feel that if I don't truly enjoy making something, you aren't going to get my best. And I only want to give my best. I don't want to set myself up for failure or you up for disappointment. So, I prefer to only make cakes. It is where I truly shine and where I am best able to met or exceed your expectations.


What can you tell me about getting started?

I offer tastings so long as they are booked about 2 weeks in advance for $30. My tastings are mix and match boxes where you are able to best decide your flavor profile. I offer a consult and do best if you have either a mood board or inspirational photos you can provide. All my cakes are custom quoted, no two cakes are ever the same and therefor, no two quotes are ever the same. I typically need a guest count, flavor preference, date (to ensure I am even available), and an idea of the dream cake you are looking for. I usually send over several quotes to help my couples decide what works best for their budget and desires. Before an order is considered booked, I require a contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer. I have booked out as much as 18 months out, so the sooner the better as sometimes, especially in the spring and fall, I stay booked up solid for months. Since I don't have a shop and only take a limited number of orders each month, everything I do is by appointment only.

#3 Cakes by Anna - Atlanta, GA

We're Interviewing: Anna, The Owner

About the Business!

Absolutely, I have been creating cakes for a little over 11 years now and love everything about it. I offer custom wedding & grooms cakes in the Atlanta area. We specialize in buttercream designs. Cakes by Anna was voted Best Wedding Cake for 2020 & 2021 by Jezebel. I'm very proud of that recognition!

What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors? Is there a favorite or “most popular” among clients?

My personal favorite is the Almond cake with raspberry filling. I think the tartness of the raspberry helps cut the sweetness but also adds a freshness. My clients also love this flavor, but our salted caramel & Dark Chocolate peanut butter also come in a close second place.

H​ow big of cakes can you create?

We are custom wedding cake bakery, so we create a wide range sizes of cakes.

Do you deliver?

Yes! We deliver to the Atlanta area.

Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

We offer grooms cake and during non wedding season we do offer custom special occasion cakes.


Anna, can you show us some photos of your cakes?

What can you tell me about getting started? ​

After the Initial contact, I prefer to get enough information to get a proposal together and set up a Tasting to move forward with their contract.

#5 Diane Acuna Custom Cakes- Gainesville, GA

We're Interviewing: Diane, The Owner

About the Business!

I was born and raised in Gainesville Ga, where I currently reside with my husband of 14 years, Joel, our 3 beautiful girls, as well as my niece and nephew. I guess you could say I got my start in baking and decorating because I always wanted to make cakes for my children. Over the years, as my skills became better, my baking hobby transitioned into taking on orders for more people beyond just friends and family and before we knew it, we had a cake business.


Do you have a favorite flavor?

We offer a wide variety of cake and frosting combinations! Our Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream is pretty popular for weddings because it is typically the general crowd pleaser but some people like to mix it up and do something not as traditional. We offer a strawberry / vanilla swirl cake that is pretty popular. That cake flavor goes well with either our vanilla buttercream or a strawberry buttercream filling. One of my personal favorites is lemon cake with a raspberry preserve filling.

How big of cakes can you create?

We offer a wide range of cake sizes! Our smallest size cake would be a 6” cake. Sometimes couples will just order this small cake for cutting and do cupcakes for their guests. We also offer different sizes of 2 and 3 tier cakes, as well as 4 and 5 tier cakes. 5 tiers is typically the largest cake size we do.


Do you deliver?

We offer delivery typically within a 60 mile radius of our location. Being that we are located in Gainesville, we are able to serve the Atlanta area, as well as most of North Ga. However, we do have certain minimum order requirements in place to qualify for delivery. We will generally deliver a 3 tier or larger. We would ask that smaller orders that can be easily transported such as single tier cakes, 2 tier cakes or cupcakes be picked up by the client.


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

In addition to wedding cakes, we also offer cupcakes, as previously mentioned, and cake pops as well. We’ve been known to make a few stacked cookie wedding cakes in the past as well!


Dana, can you show us some photos of your cakes?


What can you tell me about getting started?

Getting started with the planning process for a wedding cake is fairly simple! We have a contact form on our website for potential clients to fill out! It includes questions such as their wedding date, venue location, estimated guest count and preferred method of contact. So upon clients filling out this form, I can let them know if we still have availability for their date, and if we service the area in which their venue is located. From there I reach out to gather a bit more information as to their style or design ideas. They are asked to send over any inspiration photos they may have and I can give an initial quote! From there, if they would like to consider moving forward with us, we would schedule a consultation and tasting where we will discuss everything a bit more in detail and they are able to sample up to 6 cake flavors as well as 6 different filling options. To reserve the clients date, we require a 50% non refundable deposit and signed contract.

#6 Deborah's Specialty Cakes - Athens, GA

We're Interviewing: Nicholaas, The Owner

About the Business!

My mother started the business about 30 years ago, when my family moved from upstate New York to Georgia. My mom started baking bundt cakes as gifts for friends who were in the local La Leche League with her. One friend brought one of her bundt cakes to our church potluck, and another person who had tasted it asked my mom to cater her wedding and make her wedding cake. After that it evolved into a business that has blossomed into an Athens staple. My mom has taught me all the tricks she knows, and a little over a year ago I bought the business from her so it could stay in the family.


What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors?

Ha! Everyone asks what our most popular flavors are, but a lot depends on the season and personal taste. I always recommend our rich chocolate cake for at least one tier. If you pair it with graham cracker cream and marshmallow filling, it tastes just like s’mores! Brides who want a traditional cake usually opt for our delectable vanilla cake with our Italian buttercream frosting, which has a more subtle sweetness and much richer flavor than a crusting American buttercream. Fillings for the vanilla cake could be homemade lemon curd, amaretto, cookies and cream, raspberry, or truly any flavor you can imagine. One of the benefits of owning my own business is that there are no corporate strictures to adhere to, so we can create a bespoke cake that you’ll adore.


How big (or small) of cakes can you create?

I think our largest cake was about 6 feet tall, for a beautiful Indian wedding. Most of our wedding cakes are three tiers, but it depends on how many people you want to serve and the overall aesthetic you’re aiming for. Our smallest cakes are usually smash cakes for a child’s first birthday party.


Do you deliver?

Absolutely! We deliver in town, of course, and regularly deliver to Atlanta but have been known to travel as far as Tybee Island for weddings.


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

Yes! We make cakes for every occasion, from birthdays and anniversaries to baby showers and bachelorette parties. Just like our wedding cakes, these cakes can be as simple and elegant or as intricate and individualized as you’d like.


Nicholaas, can you show us some of your cakes?


What can you tell me about getting started?

We have a great website, which is how most people originally contact us. The website features many of our cakes, but we’re always happy to work on new creations for clients with a different vision of what they want their cake to be. We offer a free tasting and consultation for weddings, which typically involves sitting down together to design the wedding cake, taste samples, look through our photo books, and work out the specifics of flavors, servings, and so on. Due to Covid precautions, we currently have clients pick up their free samples to enjoy at home, and then communicate via email, phone, or text to ensure that their cake is exactly what they always dreamed of.
