Bakers, rejoice! You now have a one-stop-professional-shop for all things cake. The retail arm of Johnson Brothers Bakery Supply, Over the Top Cake Supplies stocks a full range of pans, cake boxes and bases, sprinkles in a rainbow of colors, candy-making supplies, decorations, kits, and even fondant. They opened on July 11.
Over the Top is the only shop in town that carries Fondx and Glimmer Glaze. A flavored glaze that comes in a wide range of colors, decorators can use Glimmer Glaze to give a cake a special sheen. They’re offering a class on Glimmer Glaze on Thursday, September 19 from 6-8pm ($40). Call the shop to register.

The friendly and helpful retail manager Chelsey Cure knows all the products in the store, and she can special-order any items not currently in stock. In addition to hands-on classes (they’re hosting a “Sugar Skulls” class tonight with one of the nation’s leading decorators), they feature demos and other presentations. “Like” them on Facebook to get all the latest details. Space is limited, so register early to ensure a spot.
|They have two shelves of decoration kits and can order more.|

It’s a bit tricky to find (address below). Located along the IH-35 frontage road on the west side between Weidner and Thousand Oaks, the shop is tucked into a large warehouse complex. They have a small sign out front, but it’s easy to miss. Heading south, you’ll pass a Quality Inn, then a Yamaha boating center. The next driveway is the warehouse complex, but use the second gate and head toward the back. If you pass the Kingdom Life Church, you’ve just missed it.

We don’t bake often, but I’m glad to know that we have somewhere local that can get us the special supplies and ingredients we need when we do bake.
