Since 1980, Cake Expressions has been baking and creating
delicious and unique celebration cakes for the entire Bay Area.
After graduating with a degree in advertising from San Jose State
University in 1974 and working on several interesting national
advertising campaigns in San Francisco, I found myself in 1976
working at Stanford University in the Public Information Office
but spending weekends helping at a local bakery and loving it!
In 1977 I decided to possibly take up cake decorating full time and
had the privilege to start my career as the assistant to the world
famous Swiss cake decorator and pastry chef, Max Ackermann.
After 3 years of honing my skills at several specialty cake shops
including - The Court of the Two Sisters in San Francisco, I opened
Cake Expressions on my birthday in 1980.
Working now with the best, most talented and dedicated staff anyone

thank you from a happy bride . . . thank you notes are really nice too.
"Cero thank you so much for making us the perfect cake for my
bridal shower and now for our wedding. It was Mike’s favorite part
of planning the details. My mom and dad had used your their
25th anniversary cake 4 years ago and loved it. as did Mike's sister
who also used you for her wedding. So after we had our consultation
with you, we knew that we had made the right choice too. And then,
when we saw our cake at the reception, we couldn’t have been more
pleased. The decoration was perfect and our family is still talking
about how yummy it was. The chocolate raspberry with the
ganache filling is still the best cake we have ever eaten. We have
already eaten the top tier and can't wait to trade you a photo for our
1st Anniversary cake. Thanks again." — Mary & Mike Donovan
