Meet Gail Ciriello Buff

I have been baking and decorating cakes from my "home bakery" since 1997. Cheesecake Etc. began in Charlotte, NC as just cheesecakes, (thus the name) and has evolved into a custom bakery specializing in wedding cakes, groom's cakes and high end specialty cakes for anniversaries, birthdays and babies.  We continue to offer cheesecakes and my world famous

( maybe only famous in Charlotte) cannoli!


Being the "control freak" that I am, I personally bake and decorate all cakes that leave my shop.   Why you ask?  It is said that cooking is an art but baking is a science. By  having only one person responsible for your cake, I can assure you a product that is consistently baked and always decorated to your specifications. You won't have to wonder if the decorator will get it right.

 I am the decorator and I will get it right!!


 I grew  up in my mother's and grandmother's kitchens and much of my inspiration comes from my rich Italian heritage where every occasion and milestone is celebrated with food... and more food...and dessert... and more dessert.   Did I mention dessert?  


As you select the cake baker/artist for your special event, be sure to find someone who creates outrageously delicious homemade cakes and fillings (of course) but also someone who listens to what you want and is able to incorporate your personal style and vision into the design of your cake.  You are unique and your cake should be too!!
