A creative soul, I love to combine two of my passions; art and baking in Emoticakes. As a child, my mother baked all the time, so we always had fresh cakes and cookies in our house.

As a child, I used my Easy-bake oven to bake for my father and when I reached my teen years, of course I practiced baking in my parents’ kitchen.  I made many celebration cakes for my family during my teen years. When my kids were young, I created Emoticakes! The timing was perfect, as my husband and I were developing an interest in all things athletic. Now, I get my baking fix when I bake for others. We’ve become avid runners, and we both write about our races and experiences. Read more about Scott’s running and my running.

Let Emoticakes bake your next celebration cake, everyday cake, cupcakes or cookies, or just teach you something about baking that you didn’t know before you visited the site. Emoticakes bakes cakes in and around Ithaca and Trumansburg New York but are happy to deliver to locations beyond these areas. Ready to order? Visit the order page to order now.

The bakers

My focus now is on balance between my full-time job teaching middle school math and running Emoticakes part-time. My daughter Elizabeth is in college and she enjoys the opportunity to work for me! I do most of the baking for Emoticakes. However, Elizabeth has been working for Emoticakes for almost 3 years now. During her time she has transitioned from mostly doing dishes to more baking. She has developed a passion for macarons (coming soon to Emoticakes), scones and bread this year. She also continues to love to create beautiful cupcake toppers and cake adornments.
