Darlene to the Rescue!

(located in Green Hills inside the 
Famous Fox's Donut Den!)

This story is too good to pass up!  I was recently invited to a beautiful wedding in Nashville.  The bride, she is just a beautiful bride like you would see in the bridal magazines.  The groom, he is tall dark and handsome.  They are the couple fairy tales are made of.  The bride and groom's families and friends obviously love the bride and groom, and the families were looking forward to this wedding day for a long time.  The bride and groom planned this joyous occasion for about a year.  The reception went off without a hitch and was spectacular.

After the ceremony, we headed to the reception.  We walked in and it was so tastefully decorated, the food and drink stations were around the room, and the beautiful wedding cake and groom's cake were on tables in the center of the room.  We ooo-ed and ahh-ed at the cakes and went about our way through the reception.  At our table of 10, we finished our meal, and we were all saying how "chilled out" this wedding is.  The bridal party and parents all seems so composed.  The air about the reception was enjoyable and relaxed.  Everything seemed to be going picture perfectly.  Then, it was time for the bride and groom to cut the cake.  We got up to see this part of the reception and the bride and groom are so sweet and nice, so there was no cake-in-face smashing for them.   They both each got a nice taste of cake, and they each got champagne to toast each other.  This cake cutting was just heart warming, and a perfect end to a lovely wedding ceremony and wedding reception.

Then, I see the mother of the bride, she is chatting with group of family friends, and her friends all said, "Hey, you gotta hear this!!"  At 6 a.m., the day of the wedding, the mother of the bride goes to the original cake baker, the baker they opted for nearly a year ago, and found the doors locked and no wedding cake to be had.  It turns out that the original baker was hospitalized and in serious health, and did not bake the wedding cake.  YIKES!  So, the mother of the bride, starts calling around to every cake baker in Nashville, and Darlene's Cakes ( was the only one picking up the phone at 6:15 a.m. because Darlene is at work at 6 a.m. everyday, and open until midnight everyday, AND Darlene has free cake delivery anywhere in the Nashville area!  So, the mother of the bride asked Darlene, can you deliver a cake and groom's cake to a wedding in less than 12 hours? Darlene said, "YES!"  OK folks, if you know anything about wedding cakes, they don't appear "Poof!" in 12 hours unless you are the AMAZING Darlene!  The mother of the bride wants everyone to know how Darlene magically made the wedding cake and groom's cake appear, and how Darlene saved the day and delivering the cakes on time before the beginning of the reception.

 Darlene's Cakes ( delivered a four (4) tiered wedding cake and a grooms cake in less than 12 hours.   The cake was moist, and delicious.  The top tier of the cake went home with the bride and groom for their 1st anniversary celebration.  The other tiers, there were strawberry, almond and vanilla swirl.  The grooms cake was chocolate.  It was the best cake I have ever eaten in Nashville.  Most people who know me, know I don't like cake, but Darlene's Cakes are exceptional, and I just loved tasting the cake.

So folks in Nashville, if you have cake or cupcake needs, Darlene is your cake baker!  She can pull off anything!

And to the newly-weds, may you have a lifetime of blessings, joy and happiness together!
