Bundts: A Great Wedding Idea

From Issue: Volume XX - Number 23
11/16/2012


By Kyle Hojem

Weddings are a time of happiness, joy and thanksgiving. However, if one isn’t careful, it could turn into an extremely stressful and unpleasant time. Why do it all yourself when wedding professionals can handle the most important aspects of the happiest day of your life?

For instance, a wedding cake and assorted sweets must come from an expert baker. Jeff Beasley is one such professional. He owns an upscale bakeshop with his wife in Bixby Knolls. Opening this past Fathers Day, the shop is new but Jeff is a seasoned veteran of the industry.

He started baking with his grandmother around the tender age of eight. His first experience of baking for others took place a couple of years later. “My aunt was part of a social club and she asked me to bake a cake. People got chills after eating it and still do now. It is a passion but had no idea I’d make a career out of it,” he said.

Beasley worked for Ralph’s warehouse bakery for nearly 15 years and has 35 years of culinary dedication. He strives for excellent customer service and quality in his shop. “If you feel ‘good’ when you walk in, you’ll feel better when you walk out,” said Beasley.

His specialty is the single-serving bundt cake, which Jeff makes in at least six flavors and two different sizes daily. He is also open to other forms of baking such as wedding cakes. Both options can help to relieve the stress of wedding preparations and the result is something guests will swoon over for a long time.

Beasley continued, “The wedding cake filling is the same as our bundt filling, but is a traditional wedding cake. The ingredients in both cakes are the same: passion and love.” If passion and love are supposed to be a part of any long-lasting marriage, shouldn’t your wedding cake and sweets feature the same choice ingredients?
