Best Southern Wedding Cake Bakeries

Our Wedding, Weddings, FeaturesJessica ClinchComment

Living in Tennessee (and, ya know, being a 21st century girl), I have a huge love of Reese Witherspoon and her darling brand, Draper James. Their attention to detail, witty southern phrases, and classic style is enough to win over the heart of any Southern girl. So, when I heard the news that they are launching a wedding collection at the end of this month, I literally almost leapt out of my seat with excitement!

In celebration of their launch, the Draper James ladies are sharing their absolute favorite Southern wedding details. Last week they shared a blog post all about the best Southern wedding cake bakeries, and asked me to share my favorite! I of course had to chat all about Art of Cakes Bakery in Maryville, Tennessee, since they did such a beautiful job making our wedding cake!

Here's a little snippet into what was shared on the Draper James blog:

Artist and designer Jessica Peddicord of Simply Jessica Marie makes a living designing custom wedding paintings and invitations. So it’s no surprise she’d be fastidious about the cake for her own recent nuptials. She says: “Art of Cakes Bakery provided the two most important details we were looking for in our wedding cake: light fluffy layers paired with rich, unique flavors, and an artistic approach to cake design. Our two-tier English toffee and strawberry cake with a dusty blue base adorned with sweeping gold brushstrokes was the perfect nod to both our fun whimsical personalities and my love of painting!”
