Big Mama's cake is often the talk of the party or other ceremonial occasions, particularly weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. Big Mama's offers three homemade cakes. The Caramel Cake, The Lemon Meringue Cake and the Butter Pecan Cake.

Big Mama's cake recipes; rich and elaborate, are passed down through several generations. Big Mama's cakes are made the old fashioned way... elbow grease. No store bought cookie cutter cakes here. The term "cake" has a long history. The word itself is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse word "kaka".

In ancient Rome, basic bread dough was sometimes enriched with butter, eggs, and honey, which produced a sweet and cake-like baked good. Latin poet Ovid refers to the birthday of him and his brother with party and cake in his first book of exile, Tristia.

Early cakes in England were also essentially bread: the most obvious differences between a "cake" and "bread" were the round, flat shape of the cakes, and the cooking method, which turned cakes over once while cooking, while bread was left upright throughout the baking process.
