Pam Teller turns ‘lemonade’ into . . .well, a Nothing Bundt Cake bakery in Florence, her happy place

Pam Teller opened her first Nothing Bundt Cake bakery when she decided she needed to find joy in her life again, after the death of her husband.

On April 29, she officially opened the bakery in Houston Commons in Florence.

“When my husband was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, we spent two years being sad and scared. He lost his battle on Christmas Day 2014 and I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life sad and without joy. The search began for a career that could bring joy, celebrate life and make people happy,” recalls Pam Teller, owner of the new Nothing Bundt Cakes in Florence.

“My daughter, sister and I decided we would choose to celebrate life again by opening a Nothing Bundt Cakes to minister to our hurting hearts through spreading joy to others.”

As Teller’s third bakery opens, she is on her path to realizing a dream she holds of opening one bakery for each of her six grandchildren.

She has two others in mid-Tennessee, outside Nashville in Hendersonville and Mount Juliet. Her sister, Kim Appel, will operate the store. The sisters are from Cincinnati but have been living in Tennessee. Teller will make regular trips to the store to support her sister.

“I want to provide this legacy for them and bring them into this place where life is celebrated every day. This is an environment of joy, smiles and happiness and I can’t wait to share it with the Florence community,” Teller said.

Nothing Bundt Cakes is located in Houston Commons at 4960 Houston Road, Suite C and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
