About Our Bakery: Couture Cakes by A Bountiful Harvest is one of southeast Tennessee's premiere Artisan bakeries specializing in made from scratch organic, all natural, wheat free, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and vegan couture wedding and special event cakes. Whether you're looking for extreme elegance, modern sophistication, traditional, art deco, topsy turvy , whimsical or hand-sculpted, our cake stylists can design and create a one-of-a-kind event cake to depict your style and taste that is as unique as the event or special occasion you are celebrating!

About Our Ingredients: When you invest in one of our decadent wedding or special event cakes, you are receiving an entirely hand made confection that has been created using only the finest ingredients available. Our fabulous flavors originate from fresh organic seasonal berries and fruits, zests, organic vegetarian fed eggs, premium pure vanilla and vanilla beans, premium imported all natural Belgian chocolate, and simple things like quality organic flours (no wheat or gluten) used to create our special blends, premium nuts and nut flours, organic butter, cream and organic evaporated cane juice. We also offer a wide variety of organic sweetener choices, evaporated cane juice, Agave Nectar, Maple Syrup, Honey or Sugar Free Maltitol.
These premium ingredients merged together with our own original recipes bring about a combination of flavors and freshness that produce moist, decadent, delicious cakes and ultra smooth and rich fillings and icings that set our cakes apart from all the rest. Our delicious handmade fondant is second to none and gives our cakes that beautiful smooth upscale look our brides are looking for. We've proven time and time again that wedding and special event cakes taste as amazing as they look and that you do not have to settle for bad tasting, sugar overloaded, shortening or lard covered cakes that leave a greasy taste in your mouth.

In today's day and age where everything seems to be mass produced in large volume using inexpensive ingredients or boxed base cake mixes, it's nice to know that there remains a special enclave where magic is created...one special event cake at a time…right here at Couture Cakes by A Bountiful Harvest!

Other than the bride and groom, the wedding cake is the most photographed element in a wedding and next to the wedding gown is remembered as one of the most significant statements of your wedding. Our wedding cakes are custom works of art that are masterfully decorated with exquisite handmade sugar flowers, leaves, hand sculpted whimsical wedding couples, children, babies, animals, characters and other decorations creating event cakes so exquisite, unique and charming they will take you and your guests breath away.

We look forward to playing a small role in making your dream cake come to life!

Our cake studio is by appointment only. We've been creating fresh made to order gourmet cake, handmade Belgian Chocolates and baked goods in the Chattanooga, Tennessee since 2001.

Our cakes are available for local pickup and delivery throughout Tennessee, Georgia, parts of Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina. Please visit our website if you have questions about our cakes or contact us at 423-342-4171 or 423-876-1922 to schedule a consultation.

You will NEVER find any artificial extracts, preservatives, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, pre-packaged cake mixes, pre-made icings or pre-made fillings in our products or bakery. Read less

My family and I have been a long time customers of Couture Cakes. The week of my wedding Kimberly called and said she would not be able to make the cake flavor I requested because it was too moist and fell apart. I was disappointing but it was fine. The biggest issue happened on my wedding day when my wedding coordinator called checking to make sure they were going to arrive on time to set up the two cakes--they never answered or responded ALL DAY! They had had the timeline for over 2 weeks. As the wedding was beginning (same location as the reception), they finally showed up and made every excuse in the book. 30 minutes into the reception, the 5 tier wedding cake was leaning and about to fall. Right after our first dance, we had to rush and cut the cake just so they could take the top tiers off. They also skimped on the groom's cake and didn't put any reese's candies on or in the cake, which we had paid for. The cakes were gorgeous, but the way they treat their customers, especially a very loyal customer, is ridiculous. For this reason, I would highly discourage using this vendor unless you have a gluten allergy or Celiac. Even as someone with Celiac, my family and I will no longer be Couture Cake customers!

The cake that was created and designed for my wedding was more than perfect. Both Kimberly and Andrew were both very helpful in making my design ideas come to life and the service was very professional. The cake tasting was the best and I had a really hard time deciding between all of their amazing cake flavors. I really appreciated that the ingredients were all homemade and safe for all guests with any allergies. I can't wait to use them again for birthdays or other events!

Couture Cakes & Confections did the most amazing job for our cake. It was absolutely perfect, and there literally was not a bite left. They have perfected the art of baking, and we were so glad we found them and were able to have them as our cake maker. They do gluten free cakes, and it was the best thing I've ever eaten.

As a gluten free bride, I was concerned I would never have a beautiful wedding cake that also tasted amazing. Thank goodness I found Andrew and Kimberly! From the beginning, they were very flexible with my schedule - since we lived in Texas and were getting married in Tennessee - I was only able to travel down at certain times. When we met them for our tasting, they spent nearly 2 hours brainstorming with us about ideas for the wedding cake and groom's cake. The groom was over the moon by the time we left - Kimberly was posed to make him the cake of his dreams! They were very up front with the pricing as well as the payment schedule. When they delivered the cakes on the day of the wedding, all I heard from my bridal party was how amazing they were. I wasn't able to see them until the reception, but I couldn't stop looking at the details. They were AMAZING! The taste was perfect (wedding cake was strawberries and cream - groom's cake was marble) - no one knew it was gluten free. I wish I was having another wedding, just so I could have more cakes like those. Thank you Kimberly and Andrew for making the wedding and groom's cakes of our dreams!

I am beyond amazed at the taste, look, and detail of my cake. Everyone raved about it and I can honestly say it's the most delicious cake I've eaten. My gluten free husband agrees. Kimberly and Andrew were most helpful as I had to plan over the phone. My only wish is I lived closer, I'd buy a cake for EVERY occasion!

I chose this bakery at first because of the huge selection of flavors! We chose an almond cake with blackberry coulis and blackberry Italian meringue buttercream! Everything was delicious and beautifully decorated. Many of our guests commented on how delicious the cake was. We weren't even looking for a gluten-free cake and didn't even know it was gluten-free when we tasted it. The staff is incredibly friendly too.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Couture Cakes and Confections! They were so willing to go above and beyond to create a one of a kind cake! They listened intently to our ideas and vision and then came up with creative and intricate ways to make it all come to life! The cakes they created for our wedding were not only delicious to eat, but they were truly an added decoration to our wedding! I continue to get compliments on how life like the sugar flowers looked and how perfectly the grooms cake turned out. They seemed to truly enjoy the challenge of creating a cake unlike any they had done before!

My husband and I were both truly impressed by the cake we received from Couture Cakes. The cake was absolutely beautiful. Couture Cakes listened to any ideas we had in mind and turned them into a gorgeous cake that fit the venue. As far as flavor, our cake was the best wedding cake I had ever tried. In my opinion, fancy cakes usually fail in the taste department; but our cake tasted even better than it looked. We had several people tell us the cake was the best tasting wedding cake they had ever had as well. Couture Cakes worked with us to make sure we had the best cake for the price that we could afford. I would recommend them to anyone including my close family and friends. Since my husband has celiac disease, we were thrilled to learn that we had such a great gluten free bakery in Chattanooga.

I love Couture Cakes and Confections!! They made my wedding cake and the groom's cake. My wedding was peacock themed, and they created the cake of my dreams. My cake was white with 5 tiers. It had gold bands at the bottom of each tier, and each tier had its own peacock detailing. They made a keepsake blue peacock cake topper that I have now placed in a shadow box and hung on the wall. The peacock's tail flowed down the side of my cake. They used the feather vellum from my invitation and copied it onto edible paper and cut each and every tail feather out. I was so impressed and absolutely loved it!! The groom's cake was 2 tier and had a keepsake guitar cake topper. I gave them a picture of my aunt's guitar as the inspiration, and they recreated the guitar perfectly. They also had hand painted sheet music that displayed our ceremony songs and our first dance song. It was perfect! I would highly recommend Couture Cakes and Confections. They did such a great job and I was highly impressed.
