a word about me


    Hi! I'm Emily, after graduating from Montgomery County Community College with an Associates degree in Business Administration, I decided to follow my passion for baking and pastry. I attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and earned a Bachelors degree in Baking and Pastry Arts Management. 

     Education and traveling have helped to create my love for, and understanding of, food and agriculture. I gained professional experience in the industry working in Philadelphia, New York and also had the privilege of working in Napa, California for the pastry chef at one of the few Three-Star Michelin Restaurants in the country.

     After visiting so many inspirational chefs and artisanal creators, I have a strong passion for flavorful, high-quality and seasonal ingredients, while keeping presentation at the same high standard. This led to the opening of Colavita Confections.

Colavita Confections is a delivery service of baked goods, from cakes and cupcakes to cookies and confections, serving the Greater Philadelphia Area. Everything is made from scratch with hand-selected quality ingredients, focusing equally on taste and presentation to ensure an excellent product.

This business is operated out of a completely separate bakery kitchen in-home, certified by the PA Health Department, ran out of East Norriton 19403. Orders are delivered directly to the client.
