Hi! I'm Emily Yetter, the creator and sole owner/employee of Lil Em's! Although this business is a one-woman-show, I could not do it without the love and support of my family, my partner and our two kitties, Dorothy and Mushu Pancake!
I grew up baking with my dad and grandmother and still swear my dad's chocolate and white chocolate chip cookies are the best cookies earth has to offer. This profession brings me close to my loved ones near and far and makes me feel a part of that common thread of food and family that connects all human beings.
I am an actress in Los Angeles, Ca, and though I have had many wonderful experiences such as touring the country and having Brooke Shields as my stage mom, periodically being out of work comes with the territory of being an actress. For a long time, I have been looking for something that can support me while offering creative stimulation in the down time.
I have always been fascinated by the intricacies of cookie decorating but never gave myself the opportunity to learn until 2018. I scoured the internet to learn what I needed to know, rolled up my sleeves and made my first batch of royal icing (by hand!). I immediately became addicted.
