Elaine Cohen loves bringing comfort to people through food. After years of making sweet delights for friends and family, Elaine realized that cupcakes brought a certain happiness to anyone who ate them. So in 2004, she decided to start her own catering company called Cupcake Caboose. The goal of Cupcake Caboose is to bring sweetness to seniors, adults, and children alike.
Cupcake Caboose has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, and New York Metro. Elaine's catering clients include the Guggenheim Museum, New York University, Central Park Conservatory, and Harper Collins Publishing. In addition to catering wedding and birthday events, Cupcake Caboose hosts many private and corporate cupcake decorating parties for adults and children.
Elaine is the author of Yummy Cupcakes: Kids' Creations from the Cupcake Caboose, a book that features 27 easy-to-do cupcake decorations for children and their families. Yummy Cupcakes is due for release in June 2006 by Sterling Publishing.
Elaine is also an information architect and interactive producer. She has developed awarding-winning Websites and kiosk projects for numerous art and media institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, CNN, HBO, The School of Visual Arts, Oxygen Media, Lego, and RCA Records.
Elaine has lectured at various art education conferences including the National Art Education Association and holds a bachelors degree in Studio Art with Honors from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
