Huddersfield Cake Makers


Hi, I’m the Debbie behind Debbie Gillespie Cake Design.  I am an award-winning Huddersfield wedding cake designer based in Shelley, West Yorkshire.  I am a self-confessed Star Wars geek, lover of sushi and the Big Bang Theory.  I spend my days in my cosy cottage kitchen, singing along loudly to Radio 2 and creating edible works of art for creative couples who want something a little different.  I am very proud to have been named as one of the 3 best Huddersfield cake makers and was the Regional Winner of Large Celebration Cake and also Cake Business of the Year at the Cake Professionals Awards in March 2020.


My Mission is to provide innovative designs for creative couples who want their wedding to truly reflect their personalities.  I take inspiration from my glorious Yorkshire countryside surroundings and specialise in unique designs using natural woodland textures, bold florals and delicate hand painted techniques.  However, I also have a naughty and geeky alter-ego and love nothing more than adding quirky elements, for example, favourite films, pastimes, pets etc to make something that is truly tailored to the couple and their story.


Do you want a Huddersfield cake maker who will listen to your ideas and dreams (however crazy) and then turn them into something delicious and fabulous?   I ultimately want each customer to feel special, have fun choosing their cake and to experience the excitement and passion that I have for my craft and the little bit of my soul that goes into every creation.  It is not just a cake, it should be an experience!!
