After developing her cake skills as a pastry chef in numerous New England kitchens, Erin's cake decorating adventure led her to New York City for a sugar-flower class with Ron Ben-Israel. Erin would eventually meet up with Ron again, this time on an episode of his Food Network show, Sweet Genius, which she won. Today, Erin's shop, Wild Orchid Baking Company, has been named by both Brides Magazine and Martha Stewart Weddings as one of the best in the country. Brides also included a cake of Erin's as one of America's Prettiest Wedding Cakes. Her first book, Great Cake Decorating, was released in 2014.
