Megan Turlington has always loved to bake. So it makes sense that she would be a great fit as popular cupcake truck Iced Gems' resident baker and truck driver.
The Cockeysville native attended the Baltimore International College, earned a degree in culinary management, and started working at Iced Gems last May. Turlington, 24, took a break from serving Baltimore its favorite cupcakes to chat with us about her dream creation and how coffee at Panera beats any bar drink in Baltimore.
