There are many great bakeries in Athens that are great for making your perfect wedding cake. One of these is Bee’s Knees Bakery located on Epps Bridge Parkway. Word of mouth from their loyal customers helps them get a lot of new business. They also hit social media for advertising and promoting their current specials. The store has recently come into new ownership—husband and wife Jaime and Bradley Wilkins. Bee’s Knees has been in business for almost ten years. The Wilkins have been working in the baking industry for over six years. In January of this year, they purchased the bakery from the former owner. I got in touch with Jaime and asked her a few questions about their business.
Do you offer any special services related to wedding cakes?
We offer free wedding consultations, where we sit down and talk to the couple about their wedding day, what look they’re going for, what flavors they like, etc. so that we’re able to get them an exact quote tailored to their budget. We also offer a free 6 inch cake with wedding cake orders for them to save for their 1st anniversary.
What’s the biggest cake you’ve ever baked for a wedding?
We’ve made cakes large enough to feed up to about 400+ people. Something that large will easily turn into a 5–7 tier cake. We can make them as large as needed!
How much do you work with people on custom cakes to make something original?
We’ll make whatever you can dream up. From recreations of a cake off of Pinterest, to a sketch you drew yourself, we can make anything happen!
