About Us


Emily Hicks, Owner & Decorator Extraordinaire

Vagabond Bakery, LLC is owned and operated by Emily Hicks. An Idaho-native, Emily began working in bakeries at the age of 18 and 20 years later, she is bringing her skills and talents back to Idaho. Emily graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Sociology and since then has worked in bakeries throughout the West, practicing and perfecting her craft.

Emily continuously seeks out new ways to hone her skills as a cake decorator. An innovative and intuitive artist, Emily uses cake, icing, and chocolate to create original and distinctive pieces of art. She finds inspiration everywhere, from nature to paintings to architectural designs, and she infuses the world around her into her work.

Her unwavering dedication and drive to provide a unique and unforgettable experience for every customer sets Emily apart from other bakers. Emily truly loves what she does, and she takes great pride in her work. At Vagabond Bakery, we strive to ensure that your vision becomes a reality.

Emily enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, and has recently taken to shredding it on her mountain bike in the foothills (shredding = white knuckling down hills).
