Is This a Bakery, Or What?

Paper Cake Scissors describes my business in its entirety; I bake, I make art, and I sell a combination of these things. The name is a playful take on the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, and no, my cakes are not to be compared to rocks!

About Me

I'm Emily Gold, the baker and maker of everything you'll find here. I've been running my business since 2009 in beautiful southern Vermont. Everything I make is influenced by where I live, such as the herbs that I grow to use in my scones, or the seasonally available fruits and vegetables that I use in my tarts. I'm strongly inspired by the landscape around me.  

Whether I'm making Danish from scratch, or creating a one-of-a-kind book, I take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way... by hand!
