Why muffinman? Several years ago, Hilary started a tradition called “Muffin Fridays” to give friends and coworkers something to look forward to each week. Rather than leave the muffins behind, she brought them along. She is always perfecting her latest recipe.

Her Majesty Princess Zelda // Protector of Realms
Princess Zelda joined Muffinman Studios in November of 2019 after a short stint at Humane Animal Rescue Pittsburgh. She loves hotdogs, children, and belly rubs. In that order. Hates squirrels and the Vet. She keeps her own hours.
Maple Syrup Meurer // Secretarial Intern Emeritus
After moving to Pittsburgh from her native Celina, Ohio, Maple quickly found her niche as a substandard memo writer. She excelled at sleeping on the job, excessive barking, and stealing muffins. You could frequently find her filling the offices with her favorite tunes by Gnarls Barkley and Snoop Dogg. She has since joined the great hydrant in the sky, where no doubt she is chewing through laptop power cords with eternal abandon.
