Coffee, Tea or . . . a Tennessee T-Cake.

By Mary Skinner

Tennessee T-CakesRemember the golden days of the airlines when a stewardess in a crisply starched uniform would offer you coffee, tea or soft drink along with a FREE snack?

Reeling from soaring jet fuel prices, today’s major airlines are fighting to stay in business and one of the first causalities has become free snacks. United Airlines is now charging air passengers on selected flights $3 for in-flight snacks. Other airlines have announced that they are also planning to follow this trend.

Tennessee T-Cakes has a tasty solution for cost conscience travelers on-the-go.  Known through out the South as “the ultimate Southern confection,” these delicious little cakes are perfectly packaged for traveling. Wrapped in a protective plastic to preserve freshness, with a pair of T-Cakes in each package, you can easily slip them in to a briefcase or carry-on bag. There are four flavors to choose from — original recipe, luscious lemon, key lime and chocolate truffle — giving you the opportunity to savor variety of tastes.

Owner Frances Barkley creates Tennessee T-Cakes from a secret family recipe passed down through generations and surrounded by legend. Over 100 years ago, a sweet Southern Belle perfected her teacake recipe to capture the heart of the Civil War hero she eventually married. Maintaining the original recipe, Barkley uses the same fresh ingredients with the modern-day advantage of state-of-the-art packaging to ensure each cake tastes like it was just removed from the oven.

“I have several customers who travel overseas for business on regular basis, “ Barkley explains. “They take T-Cakes not only to snack on for themselves, but as part of their hospitality gift which allows them to give the taste of Tennessee to others.”

Tennessee T-Cakes are politically correct, certified Kosher and attractive tins are available for those travelers who have lots of room in their suitcase. You can purchase the cakes at Kroger’s stores across Tennessee, Whole Foods in Nashville and Memphis or over the Internet at www.tntcakes.com

So before you take off on your next trip, add Tennessee T-Cakes to your packing list and don’t leave home without them.
