Amanda Wyatt, Owner
Amanda graduated from the University of Illinois with an Engineering degree, spent 8 years in Corporate Marketing, then left to pursue a path of entrepreneurship, launching the Cream & Flutter brand in April of 2008. Amanda is inspired by passionate, talented people and loves seeing beautiful design come to life in three dimensions. When she is not working at Cream & Flutter, Amanda is designing and remodeling homes for clients in Western North Carolina as part of her second business, Willow James Construction. She spends much of her free time chasing after her two year old son, Rowan, and her spirited Goldendoodles, Fiona and Finnegan. Amanda credits her success in business to her razor sharp, handsome, and endlessly supportive husband, Bart, to her fabulous and fanciful sister, Trish, who inspired the brand, and to her impressive staff, who gets up every day and works hard to bring Cream & Flutter to life.
Whitney Henson, Regional Manager
Whitney is a trained pastry chef who graduated from The Chef's Academy in Indianapolis with a degree in Pastry Arts. She refines Cream & Flutter's recipes to ensure they are fresh and delicious, and most enjoys the creativity that comes with recipe testing and building wedding and specialty cakes. Whitney loves baking treats for her dog Cheyenne, annoying her husband with corny jokes, and making obscure Harry Potter references. She thanks Amanda for giving her the opportunity to work in such a creative and friendly environment and always encouraging her to do her best work. Whitney is the acting General Manager for the Cashiers, NC storefront and also the Regional Manager for both Cream & Flutter locations.
Katie Graham, Champaign General Manager
A California native, Katie has been baking since childhood, both at home and professionally, and usually with her favorite sous chef: twin sister Victoria. Katie graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Horticulture and Urban Forestry from UC Davis, but never abandoned her love of baking. Katie found time to keep a food blog with her sister and start a web based bakery at school with a friend, while still being a florist and part-time city planner. Katie can be found spending her free time reading and being crafty. She recently relocated to Illinois when her musical husband entered graduate studies at EIU. Katie is ecstatic to have joined the Cream and Flutter team as a result.
