Patti Cakes

Patti Cakes developed from Emily Patti’s love of both sweets and art. She infuses her enthusiasm and imagination into every project she takes on. Growing up in Virginia Beach as well as rural New Hampshire inspired a love of the beach, mountains, nature and most importantly people. 

Meeting with clients is the best part of my job!

I love hearing about their plans for creating a special day in their lives and consider it an honor to be given the opportunity to play a role in their event. Every cake is considered custom and gets my time, heart and dedication.”

Settling in Moyock, North Carolina yields a perfect balance for Patti Cakes and allows us to service the entire Hampton Roads area as well as the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Incredible Edibles

Debra Miller has been baking since she was 7 years of age.  As a young child, she watched (and enjoyed) the pastries and baked goods that her grandmothers and mother made.  

There was always a pie, cobbler, cake or cookies freshly baked on the kitchen counter.

She read and studied her mother’s vast cookbook collection and in college began a long period of self-taught French pastry baking, with croissant dough rising on any free table surface of her college apartment.  She opened the bakery in 1989 and her long history of baking became the cornerstone of her philosophy that the products should taste as good as they look. The bakery creations blend both vintage and modern aesthetic elements that please even the most discerning clients.

Nothing Bundt Cakes

Top 5 Virginia Wedding Cakes recommended by Luke and Ashley Photography

To find the perfect recipe, you first need the perfect ingredients. And that’s what our founders Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz were for each other. In 1997, they joined forces, or better yet kitchens, to help make cakes to entertain their friends and family. The cakes they made were delicious, unlike anything anyone had tasted. As a result, their friends and family asked them to entertain more and more.

They quickly realized this side project of theirs could be something more.

There was a gap in the world for delicious cakes, readily available, that didn’t compromise on their ingredients. Real eggs, butter, and cream cheese; nothing was too good to achieve perfection. And perfection is those decadent, slowly melting bites, we all know and love.

Flash forward and the Nothing Bundt Cakes brand has grown nationwide. Built on Dena and Debbie’s vision, each bakery still has the warmth and nostalgia of its home-kitchen roots, but we also take a modern approach for the world today. So whether you’re enjoying a bundt cake or a bundtini one thing is certain – perfection is all we offer
