A Frosted Affair
A Frosted Affair: On April 25, 1992, Jay Qualls decorated his first cake for his daughter’s first birthday party. Little did he know that experience would blossom into a passion for creating delicious, beautiful and distinctive cakes. Since then, this passion turned into a full time successful business known as Maples Wedding Cakes, now Jay Qualls Cakes and creator of the Jay Qualls Fondant Fabric.
After graduating in 2003 from Middle Tennessee State University with a business degree, Jay decided to put both his new found business expertise and his passion for baking and designing to good use and open a high end wedding cake boutique. With his belief that cakes should not only be beautiful, but equally as delicious, Jay quickly turned Maples Wedding Cakes into a leader in custom designed wedding cakes. He has studied and worked alongside some of the greatest sugar artists in the industry. Jay, himself, continues to be one of the leaders in the cake industry with his unique sense of style in cake design, teaching, product development, and business consulting. He has starred in two national television shows, The Next Great Baker, Season 1, and Season 2 of ABC's hit reality show The Taste. He continues to step outside the box to push the limits with his prolific style dynamic personality.
Jay is one of the premiere bakers in America, specializing in couture wedding cakes. Whether your style is elegant, simple, whimsical, or traditional, he can design a one-of-a-kind cake to accommodate your unique style and taste.
