Hi I’m ‘Emma M. Cromedy, Creative Director at SouthernCakeQueen, Inc. I remember playing with an Easy Bake Oven when I was a child, but I never imagined that I would grow to own and operate Charlotte’s 1st Mobile Dessert Truck. It started about 10 years ago when I was working in Finance and realized that I had a love for baking cakes. After servicing friends and family members for special occasions and events, I took a few local cake decorating classes and spent some years working part-time at a bakery before I took the leap to start my 1st business in 2008. Founded in Charlotte, North Carolina, SouthernCakeQueen is a home based bakery now providing Charleston, SC and surrounding areas with a variety of desserts! Whether it’s cupcakes, brownies or custom desserts, each treat is a piece of heaven! Thank you for stopping by. Contact me directly at and I’ll take good care of you for all your dessert needs!

Emma and her team were prompt and professional from start to finish with everything we needed to get our first Food Truck Rodeo up and running for our Race for the Cure. And our participants loved all of the fabulous baked goods they sold at the Race. We are thrilled and honored that Southern Cake Queen donated 10% of their sales back to Komen Charlotte. Awesome food truck.

As airport concessionaires, we are constantly striving to remain connected to our passengers. We are continuously looking for new and exciting local products and vendors. Through a loyal fan, we were introduced to the Southern Cake Queen and were impressed by the quality and variety of products she provides. A partnership has ensued and we are currently the only vendor in Charlotte Douglas International Airport carrying locally-made, fresh baked goods. Emma has been instrumental in assisting us with developing new flavors of baked goods and working with our ever-changing business. Adding the dessert and baked goods menu to our concept, has been a win-win situation. Make sure you stop by to take a piece of the Carolinas whenever you are traveling.

“I celebrated a very special 50th birthday with my favorite dessert: German Chocolate Cake made by Southern Cake Queen. The cake was so moist and the ingredients were so delicious! I loved every taste of pecan, coconut and buttery icing. This cake is the best ever!”

“In 2011 while driving down Providence Road I spotted a huge pink truck with cake written on the side. Obviously, I had to stop! I met Emma, owner of Southern Cake Queen and instantly loved her concept and her product. I hired her to attend a 40th Birthday party at a private home and the guests went wild. Emma is professional, her truck is fabulous and her product “WOWS” clients every time!”

“Having an active sweet tooth most days causes me to try many different desserts from many different places. I found Southern Cake Queen this past summer at Southend’s Food Truck Friday and have been a loyal fan and follower ever since. It is refreshing to find a baker who can bake!”
