32 YEARS IN BUSINESS
The name "Frosted Pumpkin" was inspired by a James Taylor song which explains the connection between Fall and Winter - that signifies the gingerbread cookies that kept them going through the slow times.
Twenty two years ago, with a desire to start a family, Karyn and Jeff uprooted their successful specialty cake company in New York to slow down life's hectic pace and start a family in the south (Georgia).
Frosted Pumpkin became a symbol of their love, creativity, and commitment to family. For over 30 years, Jeff and Karyn have been working side by side, finding harmony in their shared passion and distinct roles. Despite challenges, their enduring love, partnership and dedication proved that they could create something truly remarkable.

Karyn's journey towards her passion began in her childhood, fueled by her mother's recognition of her artistic talent. Her mom inspired her to turn her love for creating wedding cakes into a career. After years of experience, she decided to take the leap and establish her own business. Jeff, on the other hand, was feeling the itch to step away from the bustling city kitchens and find a new adventure.
Together, they embarked on the path of entrepreneurship. Jeff took charge of the day-to-day operations and business development, ensuring that Karyn's creative talents thrived.
