With the rise of internet food blogging and food photography, foodies everywhere have sought after new flavors to tantalize their taste buds. In this day and age, if you aren’t creative and artsy with your culinary craft,your business will likely be average at best. Heather, the owner of Sophisticakes in East Nashville, knows this all too well. Since opening the shop in April 2015, Sophisticakes has already mastered the art of taking bakery creations to the next level.
I recently came across this photo (below) of one of her Strawberry Shortcake Cake Cups and knew Heather was soon to be a kindred spirit.
If you aren’t familiar with cakecups, they are a basically a tiny portion of Heaven in a plastic cup. Okay REALLY though, each cup holds a serving or two of cake goodness… frosting, and toppings. This is just one example of the way Heather dishes up love at Sophisticakes. Her little shop offers a variety of creations each week depending on what’s in season and what’s popular in the bakery world. Whether she’s making cheesecakes, cake cups, cookies, or macarons, everything is made fresh from scratch.
Not only does Sophisticakes offer variety, but I appreciate that it isn’t afraid to experiment. Take these Chocolate Covered Brownie Bars for example. Not only had I not seen anything like it before, but they were delicious. The juicy and vibrant flavor of the strawberries paired well with the rich cocoa flavor in the ganache atop the brownie bars.
The next time you get a craving for a little something sweet, head out to Sophisticakes. Whether you are looking for a traditional cupcake or a new, surprising treat, Sophisticakes is your one-stop bakery shop. It also does custom orders for any treat you can imagine.
