Cristina Gerwitz of Cake Couture

About Cake Couture

Successful toy designer merges her passions of design and baking to craft her own cake company. With an eye for aesthetics and attention to detail, Cristina calls upon her design skills to carefully create handcrafted cakes exuding creativity.

Cristina has always had a love for baking. Coming from Spanish and Italian descent, made baking an inevitable part of her life. Her family's passion for baking as well as their important presence in her life, led Cristina to share in this passion. But when it was time to choose a career, she was driven by her creative side and chose to study Product Design at The Ohio State University. She started with point of purchase design and later as a toy designer for Little Tikes. Six years later, she decided to take some time off from the corporate world to raise her children.

The tasteful and elaborate cakes Cristina would make for the holidays and her children's birthday parties always created a stir. She was soon designing cakes for friends, family and neighbors for all occasions. The cakes had become her new medium of expression.

Today, she makes classic tiered wedding cakes as well as sculpted designs such as whimsical teacups and purses. As a skilled designer, her attention to detail is exceptional. Handmade details include flowers, ribbons, graphics and jewels. You imagine it, she'll create it. Tasting as good as they look, Cristina's handcrafted cakes symbolize her eye for aesthetics as well as her creative ingenuity.
