Frosted Bakery

Bakery owners make transition to new community

After operating in the Cypress and Copperfield area for about a year, the husband and wife team of Jen Rockey and John Burns relocated their business—Frosted Bakery—to Main Street Tomball in July 2012. Since the move, business has been increasing at an unprecedented pace, Rockey said, as Cypress customers continue to patronize her shop while the Tomball customer base grows.

"Even though it's a bit of a drive for them, we've had a lot of our customers make the move with us," she said. "They enjoy the old town spirit here."

Frosted, which specializes in creating custom cakes for a variety of occasions, also boasts nearly 40 different cupcake flavors at any given time. The display is stocked with traditional flavors, such as strawberry shortcake and butter pecan, as well as a rotating array of seasonal flavors, such as eggnog and pumpkin pie. The Frosted team comes up with a new flavor every couple of weeks, Rockey said.

Over the past year, Frosted has received recommendations from an influential source on several occasions, Rockey said.

"One of our big specialties is 3D cakes," she said. "There have been three or four people in our area who called into [Carlo's Bakery from] Cake Boss and asked for somebody local to do 3D cakes. They've referred them to us."

Rockey, who lives with her husband and four children in Stagecoach, said it is nice to work closer to the community she lives in. Once cupcakes go past what she decides is the best selling date, she donates them to the fire department, police department and local churches, she said.

"[Those groups] remember us and come back to us in the future," she said. "It's a win-win."
