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 was 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. Nicole can design just about any idea you throw her way. Wolfe Gourmet comes up with stunning grooms cakes, wedding cakes, and much much more!
Here’s what some of her clients are saying about her:
“I must admit, our wedding cupcakes were not the first I had tasted of Nicole’s cakes. If you haven’t had one of her King Cakes, you are truly missing out!
When meeting with Nicole for cake tasting for our wedding, she had so many different flavors to choose from! We are pretty plain– so she ended up doing vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and lemon cupcakes, which were DELICIOUS! I think the strawberry literally got devoured. She also did a coconut cutting cake. I don’t even like coconut and it was amazing. Luckily, I still have tons of cupcakes in my freezer :). In addition to being an excellent baker, Nicole was so easy to work with. Can’t say enough about Nicole!” – Shelby
“Wolfe Cakes was so great to work with and produced the best cake I have ever had at a wedding. I had a general, basic idea of what I wanted our cake to look like and met with Nicole, she sketched it out immediately and nailed it. The cake was beautiful in person and exactly what I wanted. Nicole is extremely professional and takes pride in her work. We also had pies at our reception which were gorgeous and delicious!” – Claire
“Nicole Wolfe created exactly what we wanted for our wedding cake. My mom actually had the most design vision and Nicole was able to create what she wanted. We had a 3 layer cake with 2 different flavors and we also had bite size pies and cheesecakes. Our guests raved about it all and luckily we had two days before leaving for the honeymoon to snack on leftovers! The presentation was perfect but the taste was to die for! Nicole was very responsive and dedicated to perfectly creating our vision. The price was a little high but Nicole worked with our budget. A lot of time went into all the little pieces and you get what you pay for! If you use McConnell House for your reception, Nicole’s kitchen is located inside making transportation easy! Nicole also made us a special anniversary cake and had it perfectly packaged for the freezer. Can’t wait for our first anniversary!” – Casey
