A Baker In Nashville Shares The Goods On Sweets


Sweet treats anyone, check out why Connie Jarrett, founder + baker of Connie Cakes is all about making folks smile with her custom cakes and sweets.

What inspired you to start Connie Cakes?
I just love baking and decorating cakes.  I want to share my talent  of baking with other people so they can have a celebration to remember  with family and friends.


What is the one quote/scripture you live by?

Matthew 6:25-34 is a scripture I live by. I can be a worry wort, so this scripture puts everything back into perspective.



What I love most about cakes is the reaction a person has when a cake is presented at  a special occasion. No matter what a person’s mood is at that time, a smile always appears on their face. What we do at Connie Cakes is create memories that families and friends can share for a lifetime.


What is the craziest flavor you have ever experimented with for one of your client’s?

I have not had any crazy cakes or cupcakes flavor request yet. I would love to experiment with making a cupcake flavor with every candy bar on the market!

What tip would you give to the entrepreneur making cakes as side hustle?

My advice would be to remember to charge for your labor and the time you place in each of your cakes.
