about the designer

San Francisco native Gabrielle Feuersinger started her cake-design business, Cake Coquette, in 2007. With training in baking and pastry from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Gabrielle took a position at the W Hotel in Seattle, where high-quality desserts and extraordinary pastry decoration was of utmost importance. Gabrielle then moved to Los Angeles to hone her abilities with a prestigious cakery called Cake Divas, where she helped construct some of the most extravagant cake projects imaginable for a high-profile, celebrity clientele.

Today, Gabrielle continues to expand her skills by designing signature cakes for trend-setting Bay Area brides. Though weddings are her specialty, Cake Coquette creations are requested for every type of event – from launch parties and birthdays, to anniversaries and showers. Recognized as a leader of cake-design in the Bay Area, Cake Coquette has been featured on dozens of popular Web sites including DailyCandy.com, StyleMePretty.com and Chow.com. Gabrielle has been profiled in the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, was a recurring guest on the local television-favorite, “View from the Bay” and has made three appearances on the Food Network's Cake Challenge. Professional photographs of Gabrielle's work are consistently highlighted in such publications as Brides Northern California, Brides Magazine, Today's Bride, The Knot, San Francisco Brides, and Martha Stewart Weddings.
