Good cake in Nashville area?
I'd be interested where you've run across any cakes with lard ... anywhere ... in the last 50 years.
In addition to the suggestions below, check Fiddlecakes and Whole Foods, even.
Becker's Bakery is a Nashville institution, a real old-fashioned bakery, but they closed the intown location a while back. They still have an outpost on Lebanon Rd.
