About the Artist
My name is Olivia Francesca and this is my cake story.
I live in Switzerland, am a mother of three and happily married to a sensational man.
Although I’ve spent a total of twenty years living in Zurich, I was born in San Diego, California and proudly have Mexican / French roots.
I spent ten years in Palm Beach, Florida working for renown fine dining restaurants and luxury hotel resorts.
During those years I was fortunate to gain priceless experience in professional restaurants with award winning chefs and pastry chefs.
The high octane pace of hospitality exposed me to the intricate world of French cuisine, fine wines and delicate pastries, as well as large scale weddings and events, all while attending university in studies entirely unrelated to culinary.
The attraction and draw towards the world of gastronomy, hospitality and weddings was hypnotic and captivating.
After I earned a degree in Political Science & International Relations, I left the US and the hospitality world and transitioned into the corporate world in Zurich, Switzerland where I worked in Project Management and Compliance.
The combined work experience of these two vastly different microcosms has enabled me to acquire a multitude of skills and hands on experience which all eventually landed me to A Cake Story.
In my cake designs, I draw inspiration from art, nature, literary works and architecture. Via the love stories of others is how I channel my art onto my cake designs. It gives me so much joy to able to bring a drop of happiness to others via my cake art.
I cover Weddings & Styled Shootings for all across Switzerland and
