35 Years of Combined Experience

Karyn and Jeff Schwerzler are the culinary artists behind Frosted Pumpkin Gourmet. They found the path to live and to their professional passion when they met in culinary school many moons ago. Jeff recalls that from the moment he met Karyn, who was studying pastry arts, she knew she wanted to create beautiful wedding cakes.

Karyn is truly an artist that loves to bake. Wedding cakes are the perfect medium to combine her talents.

It wasn't long before Karyn's passion for cakes became her full time obsession. As her business began to develop, Jeff's entrepreneurial spirit took over and he joined her to grow the business even further.

Thirteen years ago Karyn and Jeff uprooted their successful specialty cake company in New York to slow down life's hectic pace and start a family in the South! Now living in a suburb north of Atlanta with two daughters, Jeff and Karyn have taken their passion to a whole new level. As owners of The Frosted Pumpkin Gourmet - they design breathtaking wedding cakes, grooms cakes, and special occasion cakes. 


Although we vowed never to work together, this just seemed like it would work. I think the reason for such a successful partnership is that our responsibilities rarely cross over to one another, and when they do it is easily worked out. It’s 22 years and counting now and we still love what we do, that speaks volumes for us and our product.
