Moreen Pinto is the Owner of Couture Edible Designs and personally makes each and every intricately detailed treat. She recently became a member of the Pike County Chamber to launch her business and make her dream come true.
Moreen started doing crafts and baking things for her kids and their friends when they were really little. But, her true passion for cake decorating didn't start until many years later when she received an adorable request from a very young neighbor named Emily Jacobs. She called to ask if Moreen would be willing to make a wedding cake for two of her animals that were getting married...stuffed animals that was. How could she turn down the cutest request ever. This was going to take some research on her part as to how to do certain techniques, but that didn't deter her. Who knew that one phone call from a little girl (at the time) named Emily Jacobs could put Moreen’s future on a whole new and exciting path. That day was over 12 years ago.
Many years had passed and she continued to do cakes and desserts for my family and friends as a hobby while her kids were growing up, all the while dreaming of someday turning this hobby into a dream of owning her own shop. In this time her Dad (who continued to be her biggest fan) would ask when was she going to start her own business, to which she gave her standard reply of...someday Dad, someday and he would just smile. Then one October day in 2012 he added something that changed everything. After she replied…someday Dad, someday, he added yea? Well, I just hope it’s within my lifetime. Right there I thought what the heck was I waiting for? I’m 50 years old, my kids are grown and out on their own and have an EXTREME passion for decorating cakes…if not now, when? Moreen decided right there and then that she was going to start the process of not only fulfilling her dream of owning my own shop, but my dad's too.
Her dream became a reality when Moreen became licensed and open her own business/shop called Couture Edible Designs. It was such a proud moment not only for her, but for her entire family and friends who have been and supported Moreen throughout this entire journey. Moreen truly believes everyone deserves a custom cake designed just for them...no matter the budget. Bringing smiles to family, friends and customers faces over 15+ years later is what continues to drive her passion to create the most unique and custom cakes for them.
Couture Edible Designs can make and design all kinds of cakes of all shapes, sizes & designs, specialty desserts, one/two bite goodies, cookies, cake truffles (pop with sticks or without), chocolate truffles plus much more for any occasion. Her passion is cake toppers.
