My Story



I was fascinated with food and the inner workings of the kitchen at an early age. At the age of seven, I received Betty Crocker's New International Cookbook as a present and started experimenting with complicated recipes like making calzones from scratch. Now, I have been baking professionally for over ten years. 

I have magical memories of making my own books about sea creatures when I was very young, using shiny wrapping paper and crayons to add color. I loved making dioramas for school projects. One favorite scene was about the Iditarod, where I made igloos out of sugar cubes and racers out of peanuts.

Paper Cake Scissors is the intersection of my loves of baking, creating, and making with paper. I am strongly influenced by the produce and landscape of my home in rural Vermont.

Paper Cake Scissors is an insured and licensed home bakery located in southern Vermont. Emily Gold is the sole proprietor and baker. All of our products are handmade and packaged by Emily in Vermont.
