Paula McCroskey, mother of four in Ohio.
Why We Love Her:
Paula blends her love for food with her life-long crafting skills to help foster children’s imaginative play. Easier and cleaner than an Easy Bake Oven, Paula’s edible-looking pies, brownies, cakes and even pop-tarts will make your kids very popular amongst the imaginary crowd. Because, let’s be honest, sometimes your little hostess wants to serve the stuffed bears something better than air, or your chef wants to whip up some dessert for the pretend restaurant. And if they get their love for baked goods from mom, Paula also creates incredible dessert jewelry at her other shop, Fakery Bakery 2.
