we used cakes by Jane  (http://www.cakesbyjane.com) and it was fantastic.  I’ve had many guests from our wedding ask for their website so they can order cakes for themselves (they have an online shop).  I think they only make pound cakes but they have many, many flavors and fillings so you could do an assortment.  If you’re looking for "fall" flavors, we tried the cinnamon spice, the maple pecan and the almond and they were all very moist and tasty.  I don’t think they make cheesecake but if you want some good Southern pound cake I wouldn’t look anywhere else.

I forgot to mention that since we were doing our planning from out of town, they mailed us a box of slices in different flavors free of charge in place of a tasting.  If you’re not local, you might ask them to do the same so you can try it.

I’m also planning my wedding from out of town and am using bakery called Sweet Promises – sweet-promises.com; and Waynette the owner is AWESOME! Her prices are reasonable and the cake is delicious. I met her when I went down to finalize my wedding plans and she was a huge help. Email me if you have any questions.

Cakes by Jane is great at sending out those boxes of slices.  Yum!  I was only disappointed by their chocolate, it takes like a Tootsie Roll.  Does anyone know where a big, delicious, rich CHOCOLATE cake is to be found?  Appearance is not important.  I just want something that looks tasty.

We lucked out and found a new baker in town, Sweet Julia’s. We consider ourselves to be cake fiends. We were looking for a delicious cake that worked with our budget. We tried several places in town, but Julia’s cake was the best (especially her dark chocolate cake) at the best price. And she is so great to work with. At the tasting she offered huge samples and threw in several extra items (dark chocolate cake truffles… YUM) to try that she also makes and sells. We looked into Earth Fare, and the baker there really didn’t seem interested in the prospect of doing a "wedding cake" (a.k.a. a large special order cake).

If you’re willing to have your cake(s) shipped in (or drive a few hours for pick up), I would recommend Very Vera in Augusta, GA. That’s where we’re geting ours for our wedding at the Crest Center (although the fact that my parents live in Augusta makes it easier). We’re getting Strawberry, Carrot, Black Forrest, and Lemon, for an array, rather than one big cake. Unfortunately, they don’t have cheesecake, but it’s still a great recommendation–my favorite bakery from Home, which is why we’re including their cakes in our weddig! Good luck!

Cakes by Jane are really yummy! I was originally going with them but then decided I wanted someone who could do some fancy decoration work. I had a hard time finding anyone who could make cakes as tasty as Cakes by Jane that also looked stunning. I finally found Tiffany’s Baking Co. . Her cakes are gorgeous but they are also absolutely delicious! Surprisingly, they aren’t too expensive either. She is very nice and I can’t wait to see and taste the cake at my wedding.

She has lots of flavors to pick from and will do custom flavors. Her chocolate cake is to die for!

City Bakery in Asheville is doing our wedding cake and groom’s cake. They were totally awesome to work with, the cake tastes great and the prices were beyond reasonable. I met with most of the vendors listed above and could not find one I like better than City Bakery. Check them out!
