4. Art of Cakes, Maryville, TN

This award-winning bakery has been called out for its cake a number of times before, and the reason is clear: they’re simply among the best. Every cake is magazine photo-quality, and they taste every bit as good as they look. Their master bakers will work with you to develop a unique concept that will wow your guests and be the pinnacle icon of your entire event.

5. Rita’s Bakery, Knoxville, TN

Though they offer all sorts of yummy baked treats, cakes are far and away a fan favorite. They take their jobs as master cake crafters seriously, starting with sourcing the best ingredients. The tough part isn’t deciding to buy a cake here, it’s choosing which flavor!

6. Muddy’s Bake Shop, Memphis, TN

Muddy’s has made quite a splash in the Memphis culinary community. Their bakery cases are filled with some of the most delicious cakes and cupcakes for on-the-go dessert-ing. Or, you can partner with them to create a special cake just for you. Take heed—they’ve been known to sell out, so you’ll want to stop here early and (try to) save your treat for later.

7. Magpies Bakery, Knoxville, TN

Magpies reinforces the idea that there’s no bad time to enjoy some cake. Their cakes are baked fresh to order in a variety of sizes to feed your army (or just yourself!). It’s pure perfection, and you’ll want one at every special occasion.  

8. Chatta-Cakes Bakery, Chattanooga, TN

Their ambiance is reason enough to visit, but you’ll want to stick around for a little slice of heaven.

9. Smoky Mountain Bakery, Sevierville, TN

Their philosophy goes, if you have something to say, “Say it with a cake!” Truly, there’s no better way. Their cakes are moist, delicious, and artfully appealing. Everything about your order is custom, from size and color to flavor and design. They’ve also whipped up an extensive line of gourmet specialty cakes you won’t find just anywhere.

10. Cake Buds, Johnson City, TN

Phenomenal doesn’t begin to describe the look and taste of these amazing cakes. No detail goes unnoticed, giving your cake a heaping helping of originality. In fact, some of their cakes might not look like cakes at all, and you’ll have to cut into them to see for yourself.
