Gail Wilson began her career as a cake decorator for a local grocery store. During those years she developed and fine-tuned her unique decorating style that is the keystone of the Cake Shop “look”. Self-taught in the basics of color and design, she moved on to share her knowledge by teaching “Beginning Cake Decorating” for Florida Community College of Jacksonville’s Community Education Program.  In the mid 90’s she enrolled in the Institute of the South Culinary Education program and it was during her internship at Happy Chefs Restaurant that she met Anna. The two found that they enjoyed working as a team and founded The Bakery at Happy Chefs in 2000. Inspired by this success, the two opened The Cake Shop of San Jose in October 2001. Married to Deacon Robert L. Wilson, Sr., Gail divides her time between The Cake Shop, her family and her church.
 

 

Bill Schneider is a Colorado Native who spent many years there as a professional floral designer and horticulturist. After moving to Florida in 2001, he decided to turn his passion for baking and his hobby of cake decorating into a second career. A brief stint in a local grocery store bakery department propelled him into the more intimate world of artisan baking and he joined the Cake Shop as both baker and cake designer. Bill’s extensive knowledge of floral work has carried over to the creation of gum paste flowers that are so realistic, they are often mistaken for the real thing! His talent has added a new dimension to the Cake Shop’s custom cake line. Now Bill works in cake design as a career and has turned his former horticultural work into a hobby, cultivating over 100 varieties of plants in his home greenhouse.
