A beloved rural bakery in Virginia, Red Truck Bakery is located in a renovated 1921 Esso filling station at Courthouse Square in Old Town Warrenton Virginia. It’s a magnet for folks who are happy to drive for miles to enjoy their cakes, pies, and coffee. Trust us, we’ve tried nearly every cake they offer and love them. We try not to play favorites but their Almond Cake with Amaretto? Divine!

The Washington Post writes: On a typical day, county judges, fox hunters and maybe actor Robert Duvall will be sipping Red Truck coffee at the 12-foot table salvaged from a 19th-century Virginia barn.

The cakes hew to country-style pies and bundt cakes with names like Triple Chocolate Cake, Shenandoah Apple Cake and Red Truck Bourbon Cake. The bakery has teamed up with GoldBelly to make their most popular items available via mail order which makes it easy for you to check shipping prices before you place your order.

Daisy Cakes

Daisy Cakes Carrot Cake

Daisy Cakes are 8″ round, 3″ high. Yum!

Daisy Cakes, created by Kim Nelson of Spartanburg, South Carolina, came to national attention when Kim appeared on the television show Shark Tank where entrepreneurs have the opportunity to pitch their fledgling businesses in an effort to entice the “sharks” to invest. Barbara Corcoran “bit” and invested in Kim’s vision for Daisy Cakes, and has since taken the bakery from sales in the 4 figures a month to sales of 6 figures per month. That’s a lot of cake (and happy customers)!

Kim bakes her cakes from recipes passed down to her from her great aunt Daisy and her grandmother who themselves were baking from recipes handed down for generations. Kim says her cakes are made from all-natural ingredients and lots of “Southern love.”

Current offerings include: Red Velvet, Chocolate, Lemon, Coconut, and their popular no-nuts-added Carrot Cake which is made with a pound of carrots. Daisy Cakes also offers a cake of the month and have branched out to offer biscuits and jam.

The cakes are 8 inches round and 4 inches high. They are said to serve 16 – 20 people. Uh, Ms. Daisy has never been to my house. This size cake may feed 16 genteel ladies at a baby shower, but in my house, I’d estimate it would top out at 6 servings due to the generous proportions that my family thinks is “normal.” Not me of course! Oh, just a sliver for me…and please don’t notice when my sliver is gone that my fork is headed to your plate.
