Olga Jimenez

Olga Jiménez is from Hidalgo, Mexico, and came to the United States in 2002. She studied baking in high school and had always dreamed of owning her own bakery. When Short Street Cakes’ founder Jodi Rhoden featured Olga in her book Cake Ladies, the two became fast friends. Olga joined the team at Short Street Cakes in 2013, and quickly earned the title of Production Manager. In 2016, when Jodi was ready to pass along the spatula, Olga was the perfect Cake Lady to take the helm. Olga now enjoys being a hands-on business owner, and delights in making beautiful cupcakes, wedding cakes, and birthday cakes for the people of Asheville and Western North Carolina.
