piece of cake

April 20, 2012

When Carol Chanin built her home more than 25 years ago, the Macon woman insisted on three ovens in the kitchen because she loved to bake.

The former school teacher never thought about turning her part-time passion into a full-time business.

But when Loretta Webb, a friend and longtime housekeeper, needed help when her husband became ill, the two women decided to bake and sell pound cakes for the holidays.

Word spread about the cakes.

Three years ago, the duo combined their names, kitchen talents and rented a commercial kitchen to start Caroletta’s Cakes.

Their Signature Sour Cream Pound Cake ($35), which serves 12 to 14 guests, is a best seller for birthdays, holidays and showers. For an extra $7, add caramel or chocolate icing.

Other freshly baked favorites include a lemon pound cake with a lemon glaze, plus cakes shaped like sunflowers, roses and hearts.

The cakes are gift-wrapped in cellophane and tied with a colorful organza ribbon.

The company recently added Wedding Cookies with pecans ($25). A tin holds four dozen of the old-fashioned cookies.
