About Joanne and Rose 

Rose Gillen - At 5 years old, armed with her trusty avocado green Betty Crocker Easy Bake Oven, Rose began her baking career by mass producing mini cookies and cakes for friends and family. It wasn’t until after college that she again followed her pastry passion. She took pastry classes at Tante Marie’s Cooking School in SF and more at Ecole Lenotre in France. Having completed stints at several Bay Area bakeries, from Fran Gage’s Patisserie Francaise to the Moss Room and Café at the Academy of Sciences, she now does custom baking and pastry work. She loves making everything from wedding cakes to molded chocolates to candied citrus peel. Rose has been a Baker’s Dozen member for 20+ years and has served on the Board of the Baker’s Dozen for 5 years.
