My Story

My name is Raven Simpson and I am a self-taught baker and cake decorator located in Nashville, TN. I started my business in May 2016 by baking my best friend a fondant cake for her birthday. After how well I did on my first attempt my sister encouraged me to start my business, thus Sweet Cakes by Ray was created and I have been baking every since. Baking is truly my passion and I love bringing creative ideas to life through the art of cake. Not only are my cakes pretty but they are sweet and delicious! Allow Sweet Cakes by Ray to sweeten up your next celebration!

Sweet Cakes by Ray

"Best cake I've had. I appreciate the hard work Raven put into it to ensure that every detail was on point! I will definitely be using Sweet Cakes by Ray again and you should do the same!" -DJ Crisis 

"Raven made a 3-D teddy bear cake for my daughter's birthday. She was nice and professional throughout the order and delivery process. She took my suggestions on what I wanted and the cake was delicious, she even made some cupcakes to go with it. I will be ordering again for the next birthday!!" -Deandra Allen

"Sweet Cakes by Ray is beyond amazing. Cakes are very moist, well decorated, and yummy" Amber Person 

"I had my graduation cake, cupcakes, and cake pops made by Sweet Cakes by Ray. I had two flavors red velvet and cookies and cream, which are my favorites! My cake was very moist and flavorful. I will definitely always order with Sweet Cakes by Ray because she is the BEST!" -Jlyah Smith 

"I always seen Sweet Cakes by Ray via social media but it wasn't until I attended a friend's birthday celebration and had not one but TWO slices of cakes because it was so good. It wasn't until after two slices that I grabbed a to-go box that I was informed that it was Sweet Cakes by Ray. The overall detail and design of the cake (turntables) was amazing. I can't wait to place an order of my own. I'd recommend her for any and all events for special occasions!!"-Tasha Pilgrim 

"From Memorial Day Weekend 2016 I have literally watch Sweet Cakes by Ray become a reality! From baking cakes casually to Raven's cakes being star of the cake. Her classic and still top seller strawberry cake with strawberry icing had the at people at the cookout talking. I have watched this brand grow so much from from the creative designs, great customer service, expounding to different flavors, and last but not least making her cakes with LOVE."-Ramia O'DeNeal
