Ohio-native Wendy Kromer-Schell traveled the world for 10 years as a Paris-based fashion model before enrolling at ICE in 1993. Her fashion background shows in her inspirations, which she lists as textiles, trimmings, colors, and textures. She became a contributing editor for Martha Stewart Omnimedia in 1995, and produced many of the wedding cakes in Martha Stewart Weddings, along with many of the decorated cakes, cookies, and sugar-related stories that appear in Martha Stewart Living and on Stewart’s TV program. She also co-authored the 2007 book, Martha Stewart’s Wedding Cakes. She and her husband returned to Ohio in 2004, where she opened Wendy Kromer Confections.
