Cake Ladies Celebrating a Southern Tradition

Celebrate a sweet Southern tradition!

In 2010, Jodi Rhoden traveled the South, interviewing Cake Ladies and documenting their stories and recipes.

“As I listened to the cake ladies tell of their struggles and their joys, I found over and over that it is love, first and foremost, that motivates them, and that love is the one essential ingredient to baking beautiful and delicious cakes.”–Jodi Rhoden

In the south, cake ladies are the ones with the skills and heart to bring a little sweetness to life’s big moments–potlucks, christenings, weddings, funerals–and their communities treasure and depend upon them. Modern-day cake lady Jodi Rhoden shines a spotlight on this great tradition with profiles of 15 diverse southeastern women who wear the term with pride. Each profile features a bite of that woman’s “life in cake,” and includes luscious photos along with at least one signature cake recipe, from classic Vanilla Almond Pound and Hummingbird cakes to Mississippi Mud Cake and Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes.

JODI RHODEN is a mom, writer, baker, blogger, and food activist based in Asheville, NC.

She is a food activist and member of The Southern Foodways Alliance as well as a board member of the Bountiful Cities Project.
