Patty Cakes™ is owned and operated by Patty Russell and has been doing business in the Middle Tennessee area since 1981. Patty graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and for many years after graduation worked in the business field; then for approximately ten years as a legal assistant. She was awarded the Master's Degree in Business Education from Tennessee State University and recently taught high school business classes before deciding to operate Patty Cakes™ full-time.
Patty's mother was a home economics teacher who taught her to bake at an early age. After graduating college, Patty took cake decorating lessons and began sharing her creations with friends at work. Those friends soon began requesting birthday, anniversary, wedding and specialty cakes from her and Patty operated her cake decorating business part-time while pursuing other career goals full-time.
After much encouragement from customers, friends and family, Patty decided in 2002 to operate Patty Cakes™ full-time and remodeled her home kitchen to accommodate her full-time baking needs. Her new kitchen is inspected regularly by the Tennessee Department of Health and she holds a food service establishment permit, as well as business licenses and insurance. Patty now has more than 30 years' experience baking wedding cakes!
Of utmost importance to Patty is the taste of her cakes. She offers free cake tastings by appointment in her home.
Patty Cakes has the great privilege of providing cakes for the wedding packages at two great venues--Historic Cedarwood in Nashville, Epic Event Centre and Rock Creek Farm in Gallatin--and they are keeping us really busy! Because of our commitment to those venues, we will be limited in what we will be able to do outside of that obligation, so please call as much in advance of your wedding date as possible, for we will be booking up even earlier now than we have in the past.
