The Story of Emma Jean

What’s in a name? In our family, it’s everything! Emma Jean’s is named for our little angel Emma Jean Caldas Melanson, who left us much too soon. She was the granddaughter of owner, Cathy Melanson, and the daughter of her youngest, Samantha Melanson. In her short life, Emma Jean left a lasting impression in our hearts and her memory lives on in everything we do here at Emma Jean’s.

Our family came together and helped one another get through the tremendous heartbreak of losing Emma and we wanted to “bring to life” a life that was extremely short and thus Emma Jean’s Cupcake Factory, Ice Cream Shoppe, and Candy House was born. Our mission at Emma Jean’s goes beyond bringing you, your family, and your friends quality sweets, treats, and gifts, we are working to raise money to support the March of Dimes foundation and help raise awareness about healthy pregnancy and premature birth. To do this, we feature the Emma Jean “cupcake” daily and all proceeds of this cupcake are donated to the March of Dimes. The Emma Jean cupcake is an angel food cake, with real whipped cream, and a purple forget-me-not.
