It all began as a desire to bake for a 4-H project. Emily made cinnamon rolls using her grandma's recipe when she was 9 to take to the Linn County Fair.  After multiple years of 4-H fairs, a trip to the Iowa State Fair and many awards and ribbons later her cinnamon rolls were perfected! During this time Emily and Cindy sold baked goods at the local Farmers Market where they grew a rather large customer base. They increased their products to the ever popular Kolaches and Pecan Rolls and from there the options were endless! After many years and begging from their customers Emily and Cindy took the leap and opened a Bakery! Boy was everyone excited!
