A few months ago, I met author Jodi Rhoden while she was on a book tour for her book, Cake Ladies. Her book documents several lady bakers throughout the South and shares their stories and favorite southern cake recipes.
This past weekend, I was in Asheville, and I stopped at her cake shop,Visit Short Street Cakes. It is tucked away, off the beaten path, which gave it even more character. We stopped and got a couple….or few, cupcakes and a great cup of french-pressed coffee. The hummingbird cake was my favorite! I surely will be back next time I am in town.
