For Goodness Cakes is the bakery of choice for the selectively discerning cake connoisseur. We specialize in providing beautifully decorated works of art with delectably moist and homemade flavor. Whether you envision a sweet, chic and contemporary wonder, or a luxurious twist to traditional southern charm, your cake will be custom engineered to incorporate the unique vision, feeling and spirit of your special day.
For Goodness Cakes has been in business since 2001. Our goal is to provide moist, delicious and beautiful wedding cakes to match the wedding of your dreams. Once you taste our cakes, you will be pleasantly surprised because most people are accustomed to wedding cakes always being dry. No one should have to eat dry cakes! Our cakes are sponge cakes; we do not use "simple syrups", which many bakeries do to try to add moisture to their dry cakes. If a cake is baked correctly, it will be moist without needing to pour syrup on it. One of our specialties is being able to make our buttercream look as smooth and clean as fondant. You can get the fondant look without the added cost or chewy fondant texture. Most of our cakes are iced with buttercream, but we can also use white chocolate cream cheese and cream cheese buttercream. Customer service is very important to us. Many of our customers become true friends and even feel like family. We take great pride in delivering the highest level of personal attention to our customers. The wedding day is one of the most memorable days in someone’s life, and it is our goal to try and take some of the stress out of the wedding planning by giving the bride the peace of mind that her wedding cake will be just like she dreamed of and her guests will be telling her how much they enjoyed her wedding cake. We offer wedding cakes for a large range of budgets from $400-$5000 . The level of attention and service is the same whether you order a $400 cake or a $5000 cake. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and be a sweet part of your special day! For more information, contact 404-483-3916 or email info@forgoodnesscakes.net Read less

INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Groom's Cake
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Pickup, Tastings
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
No
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
Yes, we offer tastings during weekdays, weeknights, and some weekend appointments, although weekends are more difficult due to wedding deliveries.
What are your tasting hours?
Between 10am -5pm.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Prices are per serving and start at $5 per serving for a standard cake flavor (champagne, chocolate, or vanilla) with buttercream icing and a simple design (dots, swiss dots, ribbon).
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
We love it when customers bring in custom cake designs, whether they be ones the bride designed herself or something she found in a magazine or other cake website. We also have a large portfolio that our brides can look through and choose a design that matches their tastes.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
For a Saturday wedding, the cakes are generally baked on a Tuesday or Wednesday and kept wrapped and chilled until Thursday when they are iced. The cakes would be assembled, stacked, and decorated on Friday and then delivered on Saturday. Cakes are better if they have setup for a few days because they will settle, much like a house settles over the years. If a cake is iced and stacked before it has settled, it will cause bulges on the sides of the cake because the air from the settling tries to escape which produces a bulge.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
As long as the timing and locations are sufficiently spaced apart, we can do 8-10 wedding cakes on a Saturday.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Absolutely. We prefer to place the flowers on the cake because if the cake gets damaged while placing the flowers, I can repair it whereas a florist could not. I do not charge to place flowers on the cake.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
We have a large selection of cake stands available for rental, starting at $25. The average cake stand rents for $45. We have silver, gold, white, brown, and black. We also have cupcake stands that fit up to 100 cupcakes, and fountains.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes. Our delivery fees start at $45 and go up to $85 for some metro areas and higher for out of state deliveries. Our average fee is $55.

Megan and For Goodness Cakes was the most responsive and most flexible bakery that we contacted. They were able to meet with me via Skype and give me the full experience of meeting with them even though I was several states away. The cakes were moist and delicious. In particular the grooms cake was absolutely unbelievable. It was a replica of the Georgia Tech tower (with missing T) that they were able to do at a great price. The wedding cake was also very nice.

The one thing that my, now husband, wanted for our wedding was a Detroit Red Wings themed groom's cake. We took our ideas to the talented team at For Goodness Cakes and they ran with them creating the most incredible cake! They spent over 50 hours creating a replica of Joe Louis Arena complete with Al the octopus exploding out of the top. The level of detail was unbelievable from the "Hockeytown" logo, the railings on the steps, the expression on the octopus' face, even down to the individual suction cups on his tentacles. He was even holding a sugar replica of the Stanley Cup! These guys are more than bakers, they are cake artists!

From the groom: "That cake was EPIC!

P.S. My cake was beautiful too! They matched a swatch of gold material that I had and she spent close to an hour with their styrofoam cake layers helping us to make the perfect design. It was elegant and gorgeous with sugar magnolia flowers that looked so real! Also, possibly more importantly, it was DELICIOUS! Possibly some of the best cake i've ever eaten.

I have two words, Orange Creme! It didn't take me long to decide on flavors during my consultation. The cake is so delicious it's ridiculous! Megan was really helpful with the design although I was certainly an easy bride and knew what I wanted all along. The prices weren't bad for what we chose. Everything turned out beautifully. I'm still getting calls about how good it was.

We had champagne cake, and it was amazing! Everyone at the wedding loved it, and they were surprised by the flavor. It was beautifully done, and they did a great job taking my inspirations and turning them into a design perfect for us. They were also flexible about setting up appointments and allowing us to bring some cake to my out-of-state of fiance for tasting.

LOVE, love, Love For Goodness Cakes! I knew from the time I found them on Wedding Wire that I was in for a truly amazing experience. Then I went to the cake tasting and my standards were blown out the water. The staff is amazing and very professional. The design team worked with me and my custom design that I sketched and my cake came out perfect! And it didn't hurt that it tasted amazing as well. Would totally recommend them to anyone getting married in the metro Atlanta area!

We loved working with For Goodness Cakes, especially seeing as we didn't really know what to get for our wedding cake - they definitely provided us with lots of amazing solutions and the cake itself was absolutely amazing. My husband and I are both music lovers and our very simple cake was piped with music notes on every tier. We finally decided on 4 tiers with 2 tiers being orange flavored cake with white chocolate cream cheese filling and 2 tiers being champagne flavored cake (absolutely amazing!) with a raspberry filling. Our guest absolutely loved it and even though our bridal party sat on the top tier in the limo, Megan offered to make us a new tier for our one year anniversary! Best wedding cake vendor we could have asked for!!!

For Goodness Cakes did an amazing job! I showed them a picture of a cake I wanted and they were able to duplicate it exactly like we wanted, the best part is it tasted amazing!
Also there prices were so much more reasonable than a few other places my husband and I looked at.

Our cakes were moist and the delicious on the day of the wedding. We had many compliments and the cake tasted even better than the tasting! We ordered red velvet and champagne. Also, the tasting was enjoyable and they made it easy to pick what we wanted. We used this vendor through our reception vendor the Payne-Corley House.

FGC was recommended to us by our caterer. They were easy to communicate with, warm, and welcoming. My husband and I did a tasting and couldn't have loved it more. We asked for a simple design because we wanted our florist to decorate it with fresh flowers. They did a wispy finish with buttercream icing and it was the perfect compliment to the beautiful flowers and to our comfortable, elegant, southern wedding. We chose classic vanilla for three of our layers and lemon for one of the larger layers. I only wish that we'd done more of it in lemon. Both were amazingly delicious, but the lemon was gone in a flash. People couldn't stop talking about both of our cakes. My husband wanted a University of Tennessee themed groom's cake and they did it well! We had orange and white checkerboard, and orange "power T", and some lyrics from "Rocky Top". They even got that obnoxious shade of orange just right ;) High praise coming from his Alabama fan bride!
