Hello everyone and Happy April! It’s officially Spring and we are thrilled! Although it doesn’t feel like it, just yet, we know it will in no time!
This week’s vendor spotlight is on Nicole Wolfe, owner and founder of Wolfe Gourmet Cakes. She has been with StudioWed since nearly the beginning and we just love her…and her cakes are AMAZING! Read below to get to know more about her and her work!
About Wolfe Gourmet Cakes :
Nicole Wolfe was born and raised in the greater New Orleans area, growing up around some of the most delicious and diverse cuisine in the world. While attending college at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, her love of baking and cooking grew as she worked towards her degree in Hospitality Management. After graduating, she realized her passion was not in management, but in actual hands-on production and development of gourmet cuisine. The foundation was laid for her pastry career at Flour Power in Chalmette, LA under the tutelage of Doyle Deforrest. In 2004, she accepted a career opportunity in Nashville, TN. Since then, Wolfe has worked as a pastry chef in several of Nashville’s most prestigious restaurants and catering venues including: Watermark, The Red Pony, The Bake Shoppe, and The Turnip Truck Gulch location.
Wolfe’s long-time goal has been to own her own cake and dessert business, and in 2011, she opened Wolfe Gourmet Cakes. She was delighted to have the opportunity to team up with Chef Jason McConnell again, and kick start her business off at McConnell House. Wolfe Gourmet Cakes is now located in Sylvan Park at 4611 Alabama Ave., Nashville, TN 37209. By appointment only.
Get to Know Nicole Wolfe :
1. My favorite vacation spot is anywhere off the grid and away from my kitchen!
2. When I’m not going at full steam, I like going to dinner. Josephine, Lockeland Table, and Little Octopus are favorites. I’m an Eastside girl, so 3 Crow, Red Door, and Fran’s if I can stay up late enough.
3.I love going to Saints games, but I’d be lying if I said I was a die hard fan. I just can’t plan my life around sporting events, but I’m always up for games whether they are of the board or drinking variety.
4. I would like to think my work ethic and attention to detail make me send out. I am very committed to using high quality ingredients and making everything from scratch. You will not find any Betty Crocker BS up in my kitchen.
5. My ideal day starts at about 5am. I answer emails, go over orders, place orders for supplies I may need. If I am really busy, I get to the kitchen early and stay until 5 or 6. I do everything from dishes to consultations, but I have been letting go of some things and focusing more on the actual growth of my business.
