Ever since Robin was a little girl, her family has been making ice cream cakes for their birthdays. Since she left home, she’s been carrying on that tradition for her friends’ birthdays. They’ve been so popular that she decided to blend her passion for making ice cream cakes with her passion for storytelling, and Yum’s the Word was born.
