My name is Emily Blattel. Besides The Cake Mom & Co., I also work for St. Francis Medical Center. I represent specific service lines within the Medical Center in varied aspects of communications: writing, media relations, and special events. I am also a wife and mom. I teamed up with Jennifer in 2012.Cake Gallery
ExperienceI started baking and decorating in July of 2007.
SpecialtiesButtercream/meringue icings; 3D carving
BiographyMy favorite part of cake has always been the icing. Ever since I was a kid, I would eat the cake first and leave the icing for last. When I decided on a whim to take a Wilton cake decorating course in 2007, I had no idea it would lead to so much more. Tons of butter and powdered sugar later, here I am!
I love working with various icing and cake flavor combinations to make new, exciting and exceptional cakes for my clients.
My newest obsessions are airbrushing, gumpaste flowers and 3D carving. I enjoy improving my skills and learning new techniques, which is why this hobby-turned-business has completely sucked me in!
