About Us

Where there is a party, there is cake. And where there are new cake trends, Let Them Eat Cake! is there to learn them. The popularity of television shows like “Cake Boss,” “Ace of Cakes,” and “Ultimate Cake-Off” proves that people are interested in new ways to do cake.

Let Them Eat Cake!‘s owner, Jackie Travis, has always had a love for all things creative. She and her husband Bill have owned a jewelry store for over twenty years where Travis designed her own line of jewelry. Travis also enjoys attending and participating in local arts performances. “She just has a major creative personality, always has,” says Travis’s daughter, Sarah. Having started out as a fan of cake television shows, Travis knows what it’s like to see something on television or read something in a cake book and want to make it for herself.

Currently, the Travises have joined forces with Andy and Christina Jeffords to open their new restaurant, Wholly Smokin’ Downtown (www.WhollySmokinBBQ.com).  Because of the time constraints due to running a restaurant, Jackie has has to limit her “cake play” to wedding cakes, as it allows her to plan well enough ahead to schedule time away from Wholly Smokin’!

Travis is devoted to always staying up-to-date on her skills of her craft. For instance, she attended the ICES (International Cake Exposition Societé) Cake Convention, as well as taken two courses at the Nicholas Lodge International School of Sugar Art. In these classes, Travis has spent time with world renowned cake designers and decorators.

We look forward to helping you create a cake that will make your occasion the “talk of the town”!!!
