As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses" series, this week we sat down with Jennifer Boudreaux, franchise owner of Over The Top Cake Supplies.
Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer, and how long have you been around?
We’ve been a one-stop shop for all of our customer’s baking, decorating and candy needs since 2017. We love baking and we think it’s something everyone can learn!
Besides offering classes and private cake decorating parties for all ages, we also offer professional cake decorating and baking supplies.
Our parties for celebrating a kid’s birthday, ladies night out, team building or any other special event feature an instructional session with one of our skilled and knowledgeable staff and a private party room where you can eat, open gifts and share memories.
How did you decide to get involved in this line of work?
I started cake decorating in 2013 and spent several years struggling to find the cake parts I needed. I started researching my options and found the Over The Top franchise.
Our franchise parent originally began in 2011 in San Antonio with professional cake supplies, decorating classes, parties and the expertise of their talented staff.
Tell us a couple things you are proud of your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
I’m very product of the quality of our service that we provide to our customers. We want our customer’s projects to turn out as good as possible and we’re ready to provide recipes and step-by-step instructions. Myself and our four part-time employees genuinely want our customers to be very happy with what they create.
The cake supplies and products we carry are the same that professional bakers around the country use. In fact, our franchise parent is a division of Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply, the largest supplier of bakery supplies in the state of Texas.
What is your favorite part of running this business?
I love seeing our customers take their decorating skills to the next level! When we interact with our customers and see them get excited about creating something like they intended to, it’s so rewarding.
Whether our customers need fondant, sprinkles, new baking pans or just a few new ideas, they can come see us and we’ll help them with their next decorating or baking project.
Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?
Any person who wants to bake, decorate and eat tasty sweets is our ideal customer. We especially love working with kids and fostering their creativity.
Is there any other information you'd like your potential customers/clients to know about your business?
We are proud to support Project Angel Fares in providing trips of a lifetime to children with special needs and their families. Established in 2011, this non-profit provides children with special needs and their families a trip of a lifetime to Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-accessible theme park. Founded by our franchise President and CEO Kevin Johnson and his wife, the organization has sponsored trips for over 50 families from across the country.

How do you see your business growing and improving over the next couple of years?
We will continue to offer “over the top” baking-related products and services to this growing community. We also hope to open another location in this area to shorten people’s commutes to our location.
