Why Over the Top Cake Supplies?
In business for over 20 years, Johnson Bros. Bakery Supplies saw the need for providing individuals a space to buy bakery supplies the same way restaurants buy wholesale and teach groups how to decorate baked goods in a fun and exciting environment.
From there, Over the Top Cake Supplies became a reality and we’re rapidly expanding throughout Texas.

About the Market
The market for cake, baking, candy and decorating supplies, as well as instruction and party-type events, is well developed and competitive. You will serve the general public and compete with a variety of businesses – from locally owned to national and chain businesses. These businesses compete based on factors such as price, service, store location and food quality.
